Normal scab or not?

Recommended Posts

spacer.pngHi! I just got my first tattoo 8 days ago. I don't have any pain, swelling or oozing, but I do have some obvious redness around the top of my tattoo and a pretty gnarly scab that is slightly greenish? My artist did a lot of white ink in this area and it's right by the ditch of my arm, so I'm worried about whether this is infection or her going too deep and heavy with the ink. The colors are what are throwing me off.

No pain, swelling or oozing, then I wouldn't worry. I also wouldn't necessarily think your artist wen too deep or heavy. That is on thin, delicate skin and is most prone to taking a little extra time to heal. Most tattoos take 4-6 weeks to heal, you're only a week in.
