Dryness and peeling question...? I think

Recommended Posts

I’m assuming I’m over thinking this because it’s the first tattoo addition below my sleeve line which I see all the time. The ink just appears to clump up or look crusty (2nd photo). Not sure of the right word. It’s been about 3 weeks and all the major peeling is over with. Some areas are starting to peel slightly again. Should I continue applying lotion or leave it alone for a little and let it do its thing?

In this photo, you can see one of the crusty/clumped up ink areas. Not sure if that’s the right words to describe it.

Three weeks is still early in the healing process. I would continue with the lotion (non greasy, unscented), but once a day should be plenty. And make sure you use sunscreen if it's exposed to sunlight. The 'clumpy' spots look like they have heavier saturation and they will likely take longer to settle than the line work.

    • As you might remember my story about almost 2 years ago and I want to thank you guys again for how much you've been uplifting me with your honesty and your words.  This post tattoo anxiety seems a very common thing. It hit me as well even though I was planning on getting a big one for many years.  Many people have contacted me and having those feelings seems to be a very common thing, there seems to be the same pattern that people are going through. it looks to me that nowadays people want to have a solution for everything immediately if they don't feel comfortable with something. People don't know how to be patient anymore and get rid of something if they don't like it. People compare themselves way too much with others as it's what social media does with many people's minds. There are quite a few reasons that I could write about regarding post tattoo anxiety and I was thinking about posting my experience here as so many people have been reaching out to me and I can see there seems to be a common psychological process (which maybe I will do if I find time to do so) Anyway:  I can assure to everyone with this anxiety: YOU WILL GET OVER THAT IT  and live will go on. It might take some time but you will get there. Don't be hard on yourself and even if right now you're having horrible panic attacks (which is a horrible feeling), it'll get less and you'll come to love your tattoo. It's a change you've done to your body and your mind now needs some time to adjust. Don't forget that you love tattoos and why you love them because this is why you decided to get them and it'll look great on you!    
    • I have been checking some review and got this "Numb 520 isn’t recommended for long sessions where you’ll need multiple reapplications every hour or so" I thought you may as well apply first layer later.... I have had a tattoo done on biceps and chest no relief from pain was needed(I'm not saying it didn't hurt as hell) but on my belly I just couldn't. I have read a bit how to help yourself,keep hydrated,get proper sleep,don't drink alko for 24hr,eat sweetes. Ibuprofen and aspirin thins your blood but paracetamol they say is safe to take is that true? The biggest problem is that my tattoo is done abroad during a holiday where I go only twice a year so not enduring a whole session is a big loss of time that's why I'm trying to get some advice how to help with the pain. Thanks. 
    • P.S. It slightly dulls the pain. It doesn't entirely eliminate it.
