Hey, tattoo in progress, looking for opinions

Recommended Posts

hey guys

the color on the pectoral isnt healing very well and theres a lot (to me) of color loss

im sure a touch up can fix it, but do you have any idea what i could be doing wrong or is this just bad luck ?

heres the picture, the other blue line under has been tatoued the same day

Hey bro, lookin good   I’m not into tribal art on myself but I like looking at others work. You sure went all in for your first tattoo and didn’t go wrong with art or artist I’d say. 

Others have answered your question, but I would’ve definitely told you to stay with that artist if you were happy, changing in the middle of a project would probably not deliver the outcome you wanted. One artist one style ..

i have 8 tattoos plus my left arm sleeve and I was worried like you were in the beginning, but I don’t even think about it until around 3 weeks for a truer finished product. I just use a lotion with a skin protective active ingredient like lotion from hospital, keep it moist but not overly as that can bring out the ink from my experience. I normally use lotion twice a day until the peeling is almost done then once a day after showering then when needed once peeling is done. Also shaving the hair off will give you the true look oppose to having a slightly distorted look from hair being over it. I shave my arms only after it’s healed about once every 2 weeks so they look the best. Good luck to you

daaamn, had a 2,5 hours session scheduled today and the artist actually stopped after 1,5 hours and gave me my money back, called it a day he had back pain

i'm so disapointed to be honest : P

next session is in 4 days, 2 days back to back, getting the forearm done hopefully

not healing well at all

some more ink has fallen and it is red underneath

no itching whatsoever

probably taking an appoitement to a dermatologist

also i showed this to the artist and he said he probably went too hard with the needle, if that can be of any help for anyone : P

    • Yes I feel the same, I got a tattoo ten months ago and It still hurts and It is swollen sometimes. It occurs randomly and the truth is I don't know what to do.

    • there are tons of good tattooers that do amazing traditional, maybe you could find some tattooers that you like and see if they do conventions near you,follow as many tattooers that do the style you want on instagram , IG is a great place to do research and contact tattooers. and this tattooer in Argentina, does he travel to conventions ?
