    Will this eventually heal okay?

    Yup, I've been new to lots of things. I don't keep asking the same question because I'm not getting the answer I want. If you think that tattoo is scarred, blown out, or messed up, you have NOT done your homework. ;-) Here's what you got from you're first thread - For what it is, it looks fine to me. - looks lovely; - it's looks great the way it is ! - I don't see anything wrong with that tattoo at all. - Nothing wrong with the execution of that tattoo. - It's a cute first tattoo! Despite this feedback, you then start another thread, "will this eventually heal okay?" IT'S HEALING FINE! You're getting lots of good feedback, you just aren't listening. It sounds like what you want to hear is that it's a mess and that you need to get it fixed. Have a good life, tattoos just aren't for you.

    You are obsessing over this tattoo. Both threads, you're worried about something being wrong with it, despite everyone saying it's fine. Regarding scarring, you obviously have no idea what scarring is or you wouldn't ask about this tattoo. Tattoos aren't meant to be looked at from 1 inch away. If you take a magnifying glass to ANY tattoo you'll find something wrong with it. If I put this tattoo on someone and they publicly posted that it "looked messed up", I'd never tattoo them again. I don't mean to come across as too harsh, but people should do their homework BEFORE getting tattooed.

    Advice on existing tattoo

    That's really rude to do that to someone. To do it twice is just gauche. I'd tell her to knock it off. As @scottyg said, if someone has a enough of tattoos and you look hard enough, you'll find something phallic.

    So I wanna get a hand tattoo...

    I’m a masochist. 🙂

    Just curious, do you think you are going to get different answers than from your other threads on this same tattoo?

    IMHO,If you’re hiding your sleeves from your parents, you aren’t ready for hand tattoos. It’s a huge step that will be with you for the rest of your life.

    Price estimation

    @Gingerninja nailed it. It’s not going to look like your examples and you won’t get a quality job done for less than ten grand, most likely much more. Any money saved on the artist will be spent later on laser removal.

    Tattoo healing process

    It doesn't look like the artist went too deep to me. It's still peeling. As everyone has said, you won't know anything until it's done healing. There is nothing you can do at this point. Take @SStu advice and don't look at it for a month. I had a purple in that took forever to settle in. It didn't look completely normal for about a year. Here's what I did - NOTHING.

    Penis tattoo advice

    Google this idea and do your research. I remember reading about one guy that had his penis tattooed and wound up with permanent nerve damage. Some other guy got a dragon done on it and I don't think he had any problem. If you've never had a tattoo, you have NO IDEA how painful that would be. Even getting tattooed AROUND that area is painful.

    Tattoo healing process

    I don't know what bio oil is, I just use a little cocoa butter after it starts to peel. That doesn't look overworked to me at all. Relax and start enjoying it.

    Is it really that bad?

    If you want perfection, don't get tattoos. NO tattoo is perfect. It's not a drawing on a piece of paper. OF COURSE it distorts when you bend your arm, your skin is not fixed, it moves and stretches. I don't see anything wrong with that tattoo at all. Take a deep breath and live with it for a few months.

    Tattoo healing process

    All tattoos don't heal the same, even in the same area. I had a tattoo on my ribs where one session didn't flake or peel at all. Give it another month before you start to worry. The bottom line is that one month into the healing process you probably can't do anything to help or hurt it.

    It takes 4 - 6 weeks to fully heal. You won't know what it's going to look like until then. It may take longer for your mother to get over it.

    Advice please? I’m scaring myself ..

    Go see a doctor.
  15. Go see a doctor. This isn't normal, but there is no way of knowing what is causing it.
