Hi all, have been searching the Internet for advice and found this website. 

I got a tattoo on my calf on Saturday, it took almost 6 hours so is the longest time I've been in a tattoo studio. It only occurred to me towards the end that the reason I get cold when I have a tattoo is nothing to do with the temperature in the studios but my body's way of reacting to what's happening. On Sunday morning I had a fever, shaking like crazy and freezing cold but burning up. Thankfully it only lasted a few hours. 

Fast forward to today, I've googled so much over the last few days as I keep getting worried its not right etc. All my other tattoos have healed fine, never had anything coming from it. This one however is different. I don't know what it's called, the stuff coming from it but it's weepy and bloody if that's any help. My ankle is looking swollen today, the weepyness is still happening so this is all new for me. I've got my feet tattooed and tattoos around my ankles but this is a lot of ink in one area so hoping it's just that. I work with young children so have been on my feet pretty much the whole time and no chance of putting my feet up until the evening. 

Would love it if someone could come and put my mind at rest.

Thank you. I didn't put anything on it last night and this morning it already looked loads better - think where the plasma seems to still be coming out and then the tattoo goo it was just too much. The swelling is feeling uncomfortable and the pain is so much worse than all my others. But it'll be worth it in the end. Its all new to me as all my others by day 3 at the latest have scabbed over. Every time I have to walk, it feels wet from the plasma within a few minutes. Think my body is telling me to sit down and stop.

It looks like it's drowning. The purpose of lotion is only so it doesn't dry out, you put AS LITTLE as possible on, not as much as possible.

Yep, looked at the photo I took for this and realised that! So didn't put anything on it that night, it's still leaking the plasma when I walk around but is looking a lot better already.

    • hi! new to LST so it wont let me post on the appropriate forum but i was wondering if my tattoo is healing properly or if i should have myself checked.  got my tattoo 1 month ago (red ink) and it has already gone through the scabbing + peeling stage at the 2 week mark. note, i accidentally put too much moisturizer every day (something i only realized after researching online) by week 3 it started becoming foggy, raised, and dull looking so i thought it was just dead skin that needed to be removed so i STUPIDLY scrubbed it lightly (as if “lightly” would justify the act of scrubbing haha) with a washcloth and it started getting irritated and stingy.  its been a month now and my scabs are slightly yellow that ooze out clear-yellow liquid (nothing thick, just watery) only after i wash it for too long/bother the scabs. very itchy, slightly red, but not painful. went to my tatt artist 3 days ago and they told me it seems to be just healing a second time, but to monitor it for a few more weeks then i should probably go to the doctor.  please let me know what you guys think because i’m paranoid by nature and getting worried.
    • Hi everyone I have a quick question  Is it to use a firming lotion on a healed tattoo. In particular I'm looking at palmer's coconut oil firming lotion  what should I avoid while using something to moisturize my tattooed skin, what about this one here    Water (Aqua), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut), Polyimide-l, Sodium Polyacrylate, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Fucus Vesiculosus Extract, Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Gardenia Tahitensis Flower Extract, Caffeine, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Rahnella/Soy Protein Ferment,Palmitoyl Tripeptide-l, Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-12, Polysorbate-20, GlycerylAcrylate/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, GlycerinButylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Potassimu Sorbate, Trisodium EDTA, Sodium Metabisulfite, Sodium Sulfite, Fragrance (Parfum), Coumarin.   thanks.
