  1. You’re fine. No tattoo is as bright 6 weeks later as the day it was done.
  2. I agree with @oboogie. Nothing looks infected. Infected tattoos are generally hot, very painful, extremely red, oozing, or smelly.
  3. Even if it hurts, it's a small body part, so it doesn't take a long time to tattoo.
  4. True. Different people react differently. I hear how bad the back is, but I almost fell asleep several times when I had my back done.
  5. Nice. Elbows are no fun. Glad I’ve only got two of them!
  6. That looks really overworked to me. Just give it a couple of months. If will probably heal fine. I don’t think I’d go back though,
  7. Whatever the artist is feeling. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone into my artist expecting we would work on one thing on a big piece and we wind up working on something different. Let the creative process dictate.
  8. First, £300 for half a day doesn’t sound high to to me. Presumably she drew it before you got there, had to set up, tattoo you, tear down, sterilize everything. It all takes time and time is money. However, that is not acceptable for a couple month old tattoo. I’d cut my losses and find someone good who can fix it. As far as a refund, good luck.
  9. Hard to tell from the picture. We aren’t doctors, but in general, symptoms of ann infection are if it’s hot, red, oozing, extremely painful, bad smell. If it’s just red, you’re probably OK. if you’re concerned, it’s better to be safe and see a doctor.
  10. Welcome! How about some pics?
  11. I’ve had both legs tattooed with no issue, but if it was me, I’d try using cold pacs and exercising the lower legs to try to help blood flow. Disclaimer - I’m not a doctor.
  12. How long ago did you get the tattoo? It will get lighter as it ages, but it's hard to say how much lighter.
  13. I don’t use saniderm but I exercise the day after getting a tattoo, depending on where it is. I think the circulation helps with the healing. Don’t do anything that stretches the skin where the new tattoo is too much. I’m no doctor, but after three days, I wouldn’t worry. That’s just me though.
