  1. @oboogie to clarify I said my tattoo was healed in the sense I stopped aftercare, after 2 weeks. It was in fact 2 and half weeks. I also said I was giving it time to "bed in". Now, I appreciate you may not be familiar with this phrase, so I will explain. "to bed in", means to give it time to settle in, to complete healing. And for the record, I am female :) It was easier for this knee healing wise, than my other knee. Which struck me as odd since it was my bad knee, but not complaining :) Yes it does take at least 4 weeks for a tattoo to fully heal, it takes 4 weeks for your body to heal/recover after a tattoo. Depending on what way you wish to word it. @Gingerninja how is your little froggie doing? :) @realsis looks good so far :)
  2. @oboogie It's healed in the sense that there are no more scabs. I know it isn't "fully, fully healed" It's not my first tattoo lol I would have figured that most here would know what I mean. And thanks
  3. Hello!

    You've said it's a work in progress, that takes time and as others have said patience.
  4. Tattoo is now fully healed :) Took a bit over the 2 weeks, which I thought it would. Going to let it "bed in" before take healed pics. I am beyond happy with it.
  5. Tattoo on bad knee update: It's not too scabby at the moment and is healing normally. I am keeping it raised as much as possible to aid the healing process. I am keeping an extra eye on it because it is my bad knee. But all in all, the healing is going well.
  6. New tattoo - is this normal healing?

    It looks fine to me, normal healing. As others have said, it can take months for tattoos to "bed in" so to speak. Don't worry about it. It looks good.
  7. Not liking my new Tattoo, panic attacks

    No problem @Carmelita it's a big adjustment to your body. More so than a piercing or different hairstyle. I don't have that have feeling anymore with my tattoos. That feeling will pass, should you decide to get more.
  8. Not liking my new Tattoo, panic attacks

    @Carmelita Yeah with my first big piece, that was many years ago now. Now for me, big pieces are kinda the norm. It takes 4 weeks for your body to heal after a tattoo, especially after a big piece. It can take that time for your mind to adjust to the change with your body. Sometimes longer. Don't be in a rush to judge your decision. Give it time.
  9. Haha @Gingerninja Something for me to look forward to eh? lol
  10. Not liking my new Tattoo, panic attacks

    I take it this is your first big piece? The mind can go weird with the first big piece lol
  11. @Gingerninja I'll be planning on getting backs of my knees tattooed, after I get the backs of thighs done. Will no doubt let you all know how I fair lol
  12. Healed pic of tattoo got done on my right knee in January earlier this year. Artwork linked to Duriel, the Lord of Pain from Diablo. Tattooed by Tommygunn, in Belfast City Skinworks, Belfast, Northern Ireland.
  13. Latest tattoo lowdown.....

    Got this done on 17th April. It is Cydaea, the Maiden of Lust from Diablo tattooed on my left knee. Tattooed by Tommygunn in Belfast City Skinworks in Belfast, Northern Ireland. I pretty much slept through it all. Fresh pic, taken by tattooist.
  14. Does my tattoo sleeve look odd?

    I think it looks good and ties in well with the rest of your work.
