1 year old tattoo question

Recommended Posts

This tattoo is a little over a year old and had to have it touched up twice, the most recent being back in April. I have noticed these brown marks on and around the tattoo and it has been like this for a few months. Also the skin around the tattoo used to have this same brown color that washed off and it was noticeably a different color compared to the rest of my skin. What do I need to do in this case? I have been using lotion daily and nothing has changed.

Thanks!

That scaly skin is typical of an allergic reaction to the ink. Typically the skin will go back to normal, but it can take quite a while. If you find it bothersome I’d see a dermatologist.

If you've had to have your tattoo touched up twice in one year, you should find someone else. That's just not acceptable.

Hi @HogriderYes, touching up more than once within a year sounds odd, right?

There is no reason to repeatedly get a tattoo touched up. Go to someone else to get other tattoos.

@onlyme Do you have any tattoos? Share photos. I'm confused by your sudden appearance here and all the advice you give when we've never seen any tattoos. What's your story?

Like I said in January, design I got on my arm was not a success; like I say in the profile, I'm learning.

But you had been constantly posting like you have some great knowledge and a full body suit. And I don't remember you saying anything about your arm "not being a success." What does that even mean? Why are you so vague?
