Bruising? Infection? Normal?

Recommended Posts

508-D0118-676-F-4316-BD4-C-D177-B437-AC1I got this tattoo 5 days ago, and it’s progressively gotten a little redder. It is on my inner ankle and I’m on my feet a bit, but can’t find any other tattoos online like this. Is this normal or infection? Doesn’t hurt, isn’t warm, and doesn’t weep. Thank you!!

WTF ?! what is that even suppose to be ?

is that a garage tattoo ?

first thing to do is to NEVER go back to that scratcher again.

2nd thing to do is start researching a good cover-up artist to go to.,

Lol, it’s a butterfly (flipped on the side). He said as long as it isn’t hurting it should be fine based on the inner ankle location and slow healing process. I’ll watch it for a few days and keep you all posted!

You never should have trusted him to put this horrible tattoo on you and you shouldn’t be trusting his medical advice now.

I just got an ankle tat too and mine hurt like hell but never got red like that. Honestly it looks like it might be infected?? I'd get it checked.

Yeah mines the opposite, no hurting, no heat coming off of it, no weeping, not irritating, but pretty red. It’s starting to look yellowish around the side, so I’m wondering if he just had a heavy hand and it’s starting to bruise, looks like a lot of other bruises I’ve had near my ankles, but who knows. I’ll give it a few days of icing and elevation and see what happens I think. If it gets worse in the next day or so, I’ll get it checked!

My cousin (who is a pharmacist, not a doctor) recommended I use hydrocortisone, I was wary, but it already looks 50% better! Still not sure what the issue is, but the improvement is definitely noticeable! Thanks for all the advice 🙂

Oh boy, I know. I’m definitely little sad with the turnout, since the artists is pretty well known for his line work. Once it heals I’m definitely getting it redone. I generally have pretty rough luck with life in general, so this is par for the course for me. 😅

Don't go back to that guy. Ever. That looks like a teenager taking too much Ritalin bought a ''tattoo gun" on eBay and started massacring people with it. I really hope you understand how awful that is. The is not professional, and it looks like a child did it. Although a child could probably do it better.

Yes, as stated before, I’m definitely planning on having it redone by someone else. This was someone recommended to me by multiple people, and the artists is very well-known in the area, which makes it sadder. It was a disappointing experience all around. I got it!

An “artist” didn’t do that. No way it was done in a legitimate tattoo shop either. Do yourself a favor and go to a real tattooer for the cover up. I hope whoever did this used sterile equipment at least. You’re lucky if all you got was a crappy tattoo out of it.

Lol, I can promise you, I’m too much of a hypochondriac to not go to a legit tattoo studio, which is why I trusted so many people’s recommendations. I also don’t believe in shaming an artist for one unfortunate tattoo when they are fairly well-known in my area, which is why I haven’t given out a name. Clearly this is upsetting, but I can assure you, I won’t go back, and I’ll make sure the fix is exactly what it was supposed to be!
