Tattoo still raised after a year?

Recommended Posts

Is it normal for my tattoo to still be raised after a year and a half? I got a full sleeve from one artist over two sessions. My outer upper arm is still slightly raised, but my inner upper arm and entire forearm is no longer raised at all. Do different parts just heal differently and would the raised part of my sleeve be scar tissue? Would there be anyway to reduce or remove it?

It sounds like your tattoo artist had a heavy hand and scarred you in some areas. You may want to try some moisturizer or oils to massage it daily to see if it helps. you may find some scar reducing moisturizers out there. other than that there isn’t much you can do About it. If you go to dermatologist they wouldn’t have many options without risking to damage the tattoo. 

Good luck. .
