    White Tattoo Ink Cancer ? Help

    i have large blocks of white on my sleeve and backpiece and highlights all over. the arm is 12 years old, the back is 5. there is also white mixed in with other coloured ink throughout. so i have it all over. i have never had a reaction to it, it was all packed in properly by good tattooers, no reactions and it definately has lasted. i would be more worried about a family history of cancer, toxins in the environment and our food supply than i am about getting cancer from tattooing. actually i would be more worried about getting cancer from a rotary-pen tattoo machine...but i digress

    Never seen that before. Personally I'd lay off lotions/ointments and let it dry out. Not much else you can do as long as it doesn't look/feel infected.

    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.

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

    It looks like it's drowning. The purpose of lotion is only so it doesn't dry out, you put AS LITTLE as possible on, not as much as possible.

    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.

    I went to A&E in the end as it was starting to feel warm to touch too and had some yellow pus. They don't think it's infected, just very irritated but have given me antibiotics to be on the safe side. It's also in a dressing now which I need to get changed in a couple of days. Pleased I went with my instinct and went today rather than waiting. Thank you for your comment. They've said that some of it looks like I have deep scarring 😢 hoping my tattoo doesn't look shit once it's healed.

    a lot of people have similar reactions to 6 hours on their lower legs. My calves were worse than my feet (!).

    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.

    looking pretty normal. Keep an eye/feel on the beak and left cheek. As long as it doesn't get hot/painful (it's obviously going to be red in any case), then you should be golden.

    If it were me I wouldn’t be putting ointment or any heavy lotions on it at this point. Those are to avoid heavy scabbing. Looks like you are already scabbing heavily. Be careful showering and don’t smother it or you run the risk of swelling the scabs and them falling off early. Probably going to take longer to heal and you may need a touch up.

    hey man, i’m no professional but i would give it a few more days, keep using antibacterial soap and make sure it’s fragrance free! also try A&D oinment instead of Aveeno lotion, but do not buy A&D ointment that contains lanolin. if this doesn’t work, ask your artist for advice, he would definitely know better.

    White Tattoo Ink Cancer ? Help

    my white bird turns into a golden bird every summer. my whites have always had a bit of a seasonal colourshift, so that beige is somewhat expected. I've seen it to where if you overwork white it comes out beige. also my legs have always been a bitch to heal. some of my tattoos are in my profile gallery, so enjoy 🙂 and welcome to the cancer-free forum !

    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.

    Those tattoos are gorgeous, as always. Penny you have such great taste and your ideas always look like they come right out of the artists classic playbook, even when its an original idea.

    @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!

    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.

    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!
