Blowout or Healing (I know... I know...)

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I know this gets posted very often and the advice is to wait longer for it to heal, but at this point I'm fairly certain this is blowout. Been 4 days and the ink looks like it's leeching, especially within the circle and around the arrow.

Any input?

First, you won't know anything until it completely heals - 4 to 6 weeks. Second, even if you do know something, you CAN'T fix a blow out ... not now, not in six weeks, not in a year, not in ten years. You got thin lines on thin, delicate skin which gives you the highest chance of a blow out.

Hi, all!

I’ve been reading a lot about blowouts lately as i’ve just got my second and biggest tattoo recently (7 days ago). I can now say that I am sure mine has some regions with blowout and even though I know there is nothing I can do about it, have to wait for it to heal completely I would still send the photos to the artist that did my tattoo to be aware. Feedback is important. 

Like many others said, this is part of a hand-made piece of art which is subject to gaining its own imperfections.

well blowout isn’t going to be entirely the artists fault, sometimes it depends on the area being tattooed and it wasn’t going to happen regardless - tattoos are perfect through imperfection

I have a much larger version of Prince's symbol on my left arm. I got it the day he died. You can cover it with something bigger, but you can't fix blowouts. Still. It is far too soon to tell.

    • In my mind you've already got the acceptable limit = "inspiration". If you take that picture some a willing tattooist and say "I want this EXACTLY as this is" and they trace it out then it's just reproduced artwork, like a cartoon character.  If you take that picture to a qualified artist and say I'd like a goat's head and raven similar to this then you're likely to get an original piece of art. 
    • hi all! it's been a minute since i've been online - hope you're all doing well and are safe! ☺️ i wanted to ask, in your opinion, at what line does inspiration become ripping off another artist? is it okay to see someone's art and commission another artist to do their own take or spin on a concept? what are your thoughts? for example, i really want to get black phillip from the vvitch tattooed on my leg. i love the composition, styling, and overall design of this artist's interpretation. however, i would not want my own artist to blatantly copy someone else's design? i'd want them to incorporate their own ideas, styles, color palette, etc. to the table. is this okay in your opinion? i know that people feel strongly about copying (as they should) and i don't want to step on anyone's toes!
