    Hello

    My original comment came from my "constant panic" side of my personality. You're right, experience in something will prepare you for what will come. In term of a tattoo being permanent? It's why I've waited around 7-8 years before getting one, because I wanted to choose something that 1. meant something to me (I know not everyone does it that way, but it's what works for me). 2. Not regretting the decision. I found a few designs I like, and waited 5 years. A long time? Yes. But have I regretted them? Not. At. All. I love them, which is what I was wanting. Yes, I 100% panicked when I thou

    Hello

    I was talking about it because that's what my original question/post had to do with on the tattoo.

    Hello

    @J.Stell I'm guessing that when you mentioned the "jargon", you mean me using the term blow-out. I'll say, it's the only word that I "kinda-ish" have an idea of what it is because when I first got on this forum someone saw what I was dealing with and said that it looked like blowout and to look it up. I'm not going to pretend that I had any knowledge of tattoos or terms or any of that because I didn't, and still don't, know 99.99% of any of it. I will say that when I first went to get a tattoo, I finally got over my anxiety enough to get offline and go in to talk to an artist about w

    Hello

    @J.Stell Okay, so maybe this is me being picky on what I'm reading... but if I'm reading correctly, then anyone who is an actual artist would not tattoo someone on certain body parts first because it goes against a "rule", and the only way they would have given me this tattoo is if I agreed to do a full sleeve first. No offense to the culture but personal I find that a bit disappointing. I mean, I understand making sure someone knows what will/may happen with the the tattoo, doing aftercare.. but honestly you'd think no matter WHERE on the body a tattoo goes, it's going to

    Hello

    @J.Stell If you don't mind me asking, what do you mean on the comment: unfortunately not all people adhere to rules or the "road" in tattooing, IE; finger or hand tattoos on people that aren't fully sleeved. What is the difference between just getting a plain finger tattoo or having it with a sleeve..? and now that it's actually starting to heal it actually looks pretty friggin' fantastic. I just had a panic moment when it looked part blow part not and I thought it was going to be all... wonky. It's looking beautiful now, getting more healed and awesome.

    Tattoo Peel

    At least it seems normal and it wasn't anything that seemed weird. I'm probably weird for thinking it was weird, that's okay. Well.... even if it has a tendency to fade/ blowout where it is I just love how finger tattoos look so I'll work with it. Thank you guys!

    Hello

    @Hogrider I say "prematurely" because one part started to peel before the other (as in, the middle of the tattoo peeled before the rest even looked close to a peel) so it seemed strange to me. Now my other one was even more simple than this one, and it's only my second, so I don't have a lot of experience with what is "normal". I did go to the tattoo artist to ask his opinion but I also know he's really popular and doesn't have a ton of time to reply so I decided to also go to a tattoo forum to ask the opinion since I wasn't really getting an answer out of my research. I have done re

    Hello

    @Gingerninja I have 2 tattoos, but part of for me why I get worried about the healing is because you get a tattoo for it to look a specific way. If it doesn't heal right, that goes away. I got worried because my recent one after following the same care I got a part of the finger that seemed to peel prematurely on its own, and didn't look right. I had someone say it looked like blowout that can't be helped.. but now I'm bummed because it only happened on one section and now it doesn't quite look the same. I'll give it a few months and then have it touched up and see it it can just be "edit

    Hello

    I posted my first question, kind of curious as to opinions. Tattoos make me all nervous, just off of how they heal and different things that have worked for different people. I always feel if I look at it wrong it won't heal properly..

    Tattoo Peel

    My other tattoo was on the finger and healed fine. I'm not saying it is healed, I was asking to anyone who has had something similar if it looks normal. It peeled on its own but looks... off. But I haven't had this kind before.

    Tattoo Peel

    Okay, So with my first tattoo I read all about how it will peel on its own, not to worry, and it peeled really nice only needed a tiny touchup but was beautiful. Went back to the same guy for the next tattoo, and I didn't start to peel like the other one, despite doing the same process (keeping it out of water, dabbing, keeping it moisturized with a tattoo "serum" when needed). It seemed a bit drier, and also that it was more raised. Well the other day I notice that it peeled in 2 small sections on its own.. and looks horrible. Does it look normal? Because it peeled itself I just pulled t
