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

    • I did a little bit of research but instead of digging through hundreds of topics about creams I just thought I ask straight about applying in middle of tattooing....
    • As someone middle-aged but new to the tattoo scene (just started the work on my first a couple weeks ago, going in for the second session tomorrow) I'm theorizing maybe it's the "social media + Instagram" popularity/bandwagon thing? People see all these awesome tattoos online, usually a zoomed in, well lit/cropped image that looks amazing.  The hype starts, they rush out to get in on the awesomeness, then suddenly reality hits "wait, this isn't a nice cropped imagine online, this is on me forever and it does have some affect/impact on my daily life".  Probably mostly an overblown impression that fades over time, but that first realization hits hard. Dunno, that's my worthless $0.02 on it.  That feeling isn't something I share: I'm pretty sure my first one I'm getting is perceived as "dumb" by the general public (my wife gave me the 'hmmmm' response so far lol), but I'm cool with that, it makes me happy to get anyways.
    • @Dan Thank you! I had Kurt do my other foot 9 years ago but I've put off this one because it was so damn painful! Hahah @SStu Same! Putting my weight over my leg or digging my heel into the table made it easier to sit still. If I tried to relax I'd get a bit shaky/twitchy!  @oboogie Agreed! My feet are quite bony as well, makes for an uncomfortable session!
