First, tattoos itch while they heal. Second of all, quit drowning it. You're using way too much lotion, I can see that from the pic. The goal of the lotion is so that it doesn't dry out, it's not to cover it with a protective coat. Last, it takes 4 -6 weeks to heal so just don't look at it until then.

Shame on your artist for not going over the healing process with you. The flakes are DEAD skin. DEAD. DEAD. They aren't coming back and they are of no use to you. Just put the smallest possible amount of lotion possible on and the DEAD skin is going to flake off.
