Tylenol safe?

Recommended Posts

Some time ago I have posted a tattoo that the guy screwed up. The tattoo is going to be "repaired" guy said that he needs a full session to make it look good.  Meanwhile he is doing me this to join both tattoos together there will also be colours like orange eyes and pentagram and flames around the horns.  But I couldn't last the whole session so he only finished the contours it was painful much more than the chest.  The only place I had a bit of relief was the middle of my belly.  So here is the question is Tylenol ok to use before the session.  

 

And could you give me any personal opinion what do you think about this idea of tattoo.  Is it going to work I mean the top tattoo is kind of more realistic style and what is going to make on my belly is not going to be so much realistic. Personally I really like his style and the idea to put a bit of life to the top tattoo with colours but would to hear some honest opinions.

 

Thanks.  Pawel.

I like the new guy's style, too. 

Highlights and some outlining added to the top might help it, applied by the right person. Print out a photo and have him show you what he's intending. 

I don't know about the Tylenol question, but I doubt it'd help much. It's just a sensitive area and it's gonna suck.

Tylenol is not a blood thinner, it should be fine to take before the tattoo,

the best things you can do before a tattoo is mentally prepare for it, put yourself in a pleasant place in your head,

perhydrate the day and night before and get a good nights sleep,

eat a really good healthy meal right before the tattoo,

bring sugary candy and water with you to the tattoo,

I bring skittles and M&M's,

I also bring a banana to eat half way through,

eat a little candy throughout the tattoo, it will make you feel better.

don't forget to turn the sounds off on your phone during the tattoo,like the ringer and text alerts, it's the polite thing to do.

Hey bro,

i hear ya on the sensitive skin areas.  My left arm has been a free hand sleeve project broken into 2 main tattoos and then fill in sessions. Well let’s say after the first fill in session I didn’t wait long enough to try and finish and damn that arm was just painful from the start. I’m 98% done now and had to pull the cord during 2nd fill in session. On the inside of bicep right at the arm pit lit me on fire, lol. Well my point was; try vasocaine lidocaine spray. After you get going on your ink and have broken skin all over, best after outlines, spray the areas and wait 5 minutes and mostly will be numb except in the most sensitive areas. It also helped with swelling, bleeding, and helped afterward not be so sore.  And no I’m not pitching the product, it just really works.

Do you think that putting colours like flames around the horns and top head is a good idea to join them two first one is so much black. It's the best idea I could come up with to "save " this design .

Well, there isn't much right or wrong on how you proceed - but ultimately it's only you you have to satisfy every morning when you approach the mirror. In my case and over the years I've evolved into a black/grey guy. I can't tell if you're intending for your stomach to include color or not, but if it was me I'd keep that black/grey and when the top was getting re-worked I have that artist extend the chest tattoo downward.

How would you extend it downward? Got any idea? I'm planning on joining them two.

    • Just finished my 2nd Flexifix round this morning: Thursday afternoon had color fill, left the cling wrap on until Friday morning. Friday morning I removed the cling wrap, washed with Cetaphil, dried with paper towels and let air dry for ~10 minutes, and applied the Flexifix (no aquaphor this time). I left things for four 24-hour days (Fri morn -> Tues morn).  There was a slight bit of bubbling/fluid visible on Friday, but after Sat morning I couldn't really see any bubbling/fluid at all underneath the covering.   Upon removal this morning (still a bear to remove) the color fill was dry, and the bandage was definitely sticking to the colored areas.  After removal the surrounding skin was very red/angry looking, which I think is just a reaction to the physical removal (no redness at all while the bandage was on).  I'm wondering if it would have helped to apply aquaphor to the colored area before the bandage (I'll try this next color session coming up and see if it helps with the removal later).  The colored areas skin feels very lizard-like, which is much different than when I just had the outlines (which remained smooth after removal). I'll keep things lotioned for the next few weeks.  I'm guessing my difference between the first time and now is outline vs color fill.  
    • I had one that got REALLY infected on my tricep, and when it finally healed all it needed was a quick touch up to pack some more color. Like others have said, all you can do is maintain your aftercare and wait for it to heal fully.
    • You’re quite right! Thank you.  🙂 Think I was just searching for some reassurance/words of wisdom/the voice of experience on top of the inevitable waiting game, if you know what I mean.
