Help! My tattoo has gone wrong :(

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone, 

This tattoo is 2.5 weeks old, and was done by an experienced artist. 

the red side was fine, no problems, however, the blue side seemed ok at first and then scabbed heavily all over. I thought I might have just been reacting differently to it. When the scabs fell off, I saw that it was reddened underneath, and there is still dark red discolouration through the blue. 

I’ve got several tattoos, some black and some coloured and have never had anything like this happen. 

is it scarring? Is it discoloured due to reacting with my skin? 

there is no heat, no inflammation, no pain and no discharge. 

anyone seen anything like this before?

Seems like the skin is overworked, or your skin simply did not like the ink. Let it heal and maybe you could get it reworked, if you think it's infected go to the doctor but it will be fine!
Sometimes this kind of stuff just happens.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
