    2 bumpy dots on 17 day old tat

    Absolutely nothing. Your chances of making it worse trying to fix it are about 99%.

    We say this about 10 times/week - but you've got to wait at least 4-6 weeks to know what it's really going to look like. 8 days isn't nearly enough.

    Traditional filler advice

    if you do go the stars/dots route, suggest you get them all done at once by the same tattooer, so they look consistent. and a tattooer that is experienced with that traditional look. but idk, perhaps just leave it. adding dots/stars could really muddy it all up, i'm not sure if it will really 'bring it together' - your pieces are all black and they are already fairly close together. you still got room for a nice wrist tattoo and what looks like a lot of torso real estate for some really cool big interesting pieces. that might help you take your own focus away from feeling your arm is incomplete (which i don't think it is, looks great as-is).

    Is my tat healing okay?

    The center doesn't look reasonably flat. Almost like a tiny crater, which would be similar on an infection if it was red/swollen. It can still look normal, later on. It often takes 4-6 weeks before you know what you're ending up with.

    Put the 3rd GoldWing on the road today. A '79 that I plan to use as my daily driver in hot weather as it is neked. Still need to upgrade the shocks and put a lower set of handlebars on it, but it is running great!

    Not really a new tattoo but I got a call from the shop that did my tattoos. They are having a professional photographer come in to shoot some of the artists favorite pieces and the artist who did mine choose one of mine as one of his favorites that he wanted shot. Thought that was pretty sweet. I’m guessing it’s the clipper ship but I’m not sure.

    It might, but you'd at least have to have a very capable artist who is skilled in single needle covers.

    With either of those pictures, the only way that circle is going to disappear is for the panda to be big enough for your old tattoo to fit entirely into the darkest area of the panda - and that'd be quite large and really weird overall placement.

    Poor application or damage during healing, as far as I know . . .

    Is my tat healing okay?

    Yeah, it doesn't look 100% normal, but it also doesn't look red/hot either. If it does get red and hot then it's infected and you should see a doctor immediately. Otherwise all you can do is wait 4-6 weeks to see how it comes out.

    @SStu - shooting for March/April! We just have the crane to finish and a touch up on my knee then we will be done. Trying to setup a time with Garver to start my sleeve...it would be ideal to do both in the same trip. I will let you know!

    Not happy with new tattoo

    Honestly, it looks good! That placement is one of those spots where depending on how the arm is positioned it can look a little wonky. My guess is it looks straight when your arm is straightened out/natural. (I have a dagger on my tricep and it only looks "straight" in certain positions haha) Let it heal fully, and if you still want the line size matching, you can always have that done.

    Advice Needed

    oof 1 hour long break ... that would just drain whatever gas I had in the tank. long breaks like that deplete the momentum of a session. doesn't look like the tattooist was even hitting you that hard with the machine. idk the body is weird. dry heal it out and leave it alone.

    Advice Needed

    If it’s just those little areas I wouldn’t worry too much about it. The tattoo is still very new. If it’s obviously not infected I don’t see the reason for putting antiseptic on an already irritated section of skin. If it were me, I’d leave it be and let it heal and settle then see about touching the spot up if some of the ink fell out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Upcoming Tattoos

    I'm getting lots of work done tonight! I'll be getting an all seeing eye in my elbow ditch, a rose on the front of my shoulder/chest area and one of those classic 'mom' tattoos with the heart and banner but with the text 'Myself' inside the banner.

    Saniderm tape/ red rash.

    I have used tagederm and saniderm and IMO it's the same stuff and both have given me the same results.

    I believe the concern about swimming with a new tattoo is not about spreading diseases or germs to other people as it is about what it could do to your new tattoo. From what I understand, It is generally advisable to avoid baths, overly long showers or swimming to prevent the tattoo from becoming soaked and to protect it from bacteria and what-not from infecting the new tattoo since it is essentially an open wound. Strong chemicals and chlorine in the water can also irritate the new tattoo and interfere with the healing process. Other than avoiding the pool until your new tattoo is completely healed, you may want to monitor it for any signs of infection. Elsewise, just wait for it to heal.

    Tattoo not healing right need advice ASAP

    Yeah, I've had scabbing like that. You'll be fine as long as you don't end up knocking or picking them off. Don't saturate the scabs with water or ointments.

    Thank you. I am going to keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn't take a turn. Certainly not something I've seen either. Only thing im worried about is cracking and having big plates of skin.
  34. 1 point
    Yeah - it could be a red ink reaction, and you'll find at least a couple of historical threads that dive into that subject. Nevertheless if it's painful even 2 weeks after it's applied I'd be having a doctor make sure there's no infection.

    Tattoo Ink

    I can honestly say I've never seen that before. I've also probably never seen that much white being used, either - but I've never heard about anyone having a reaction to white ink.

    In usual South Florida summer fashion, my entire front and back yard is filled with mosquitoes. It's particularly bad because tropical storm Issac dumped 12 inches on our lawn. Ugh. So my fresh calf tat is at least one bite on it, and another right next to it. As if the itching wasn't bad enough to begin with!

    Firstly, some pics would help people understand what you're dealing with. Secondly, you're doing this to yourself. Take a deep breath and stop obsessing over it. It takes a while to get used to a big change, relax and try to just ignore it for a few weeks. It just a tattoo.
