Is my tattoo scarring? Should I be worried?

Recommended Posts

This is my first tattoo, had it for 2.5 weeks. Been keeping up with aftercare thoroughly. From what I’ve read I’m going through the “milky phase” of my tattoo but in two parts(parts circled) it’s not as much of a milky, hazy white. Instead it’s pinkish red and I’m worried they are scars forming. Do they look like scars? Can they be touched up? Or do they even need to be touched up at all, and after they heal will the ink show through? I’m super paranoid about this since it’s my first one. Also my artist is actually out of the country right now and isn’t answering his phone which makes things tough.

It takes at least 3-4 weeks for most tattoos to heal and for you to see what you've really got. As long as those circled spots don't get hot with inflamed skin you should be ok. They might just be where the scab got knocked off or something. Aside from that, you're just going to have to be patient and let it finish healing.

    • Personally, I really like it. It's bold and ties in nicely with your other pieces. But this is just my opinion, and what matters is what you think. Try to stay calm and take your time. But as I said, I think it looks good.
    • Hello All. Im going through massive regret and anxiety from a recent cover up that turned out really dark, its almost a blackout. Its totally not what i iexpected. I'm thinking white over black ink could be a soloution to save this and have it looking good ? i've seen some really good results with white. I never wanted or imagined so much black, and did everything to avoid it, but the artist was not clear about his vision, and im  in shock at the moment. going through massive anxiety and depression. If any of you care to say what you think about it, i'd appreciate it
    • Tattoos don't heal on a schedule. 4-6 weeks is a general guideline. I had one that didn't completely settle for a year. It was the purple color that didn't look quite right. I forgot about it and at some point I looked at it and noticed that it looked perfect.
