  1. You will more than likely be able to find a tattooer that would be able to do it. What this guy seems to be concerned with is the longevity of the tattoo. Tattoos fade and spread over time. Lines close together will run together and make the tattoo not readable if not properly designed. There’s not an artist out there that can prevent this. What you will find are artist that don’t care enough to tell you this and do it anyway. Let the professional educate you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Please don’t get anymore tattoos. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Tattoos in general fade with time. Trying to do anything to it while maintaining the original design is going to make a mess of it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. It won’t “fix” itself. You should fix your expectations of tattoos. Tattoos are imperfect. They are made by imperfect people on an imperfect canvas. They are not meant to be looked at through a microscope. It’s a small tattoo on a delicate piece of skin and any imperfection is going to be spotted easier. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. 3 weeks is too soon to tell. Also it’s on some very thin skin. Wrists tend to be more prone to slight blowouts. If it is blown out you won’t be able to “fix” it without making it worse. I would just stop obsessing over it and let it finish healing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I wouldn’t recommend having your first tattoo experience be on your back down your spine. That being said, welcome! Do your research on an artist that has done similar work to what you want. Show them some references and don’t rush the process. Try to think about your future plans too and where this tattoo will fit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Pic isn’t showing but give it at least a month before you look too carefully. After that, go in for a touch up if need be. Tattoos look all sorts of wonky as they heal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Blowout?

    Did you look around the forum at other threads relating to this topic before posting? It’s far too early to know. Let it heal. No sense in stressing about something you can’t do anything about. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Exactly! Lots of crap in sunscreen that can irritate a healing tattoo. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. This shop or artist have an Instagram or something we could see? Did you see any of their healed work? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Probably my least favorite area to heal thus far. The constant dampness in the area doesn’t help. Seems like my ditch took twice as long to heal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi :)

    I would agree that drier is better for the scabs currently. Just treat them with care and don’t do anything to rip them off prematurely. You may need a touch up after it’s all healed or you may not. Won’t know for awhile. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi :)

    Welcome! How old is the tattoo and where is it located? It looks quite bruised. Different colors for me heal differently. Some colors need to be packed more and might contribute to heavier scabbing. Keep taking care of it and don’t let the scabs dry out too much but don’t over moisturize them either. Thick scabs can be a pain and will require a little extra care and extra healing time in my experience. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I use the SPF 50. Best sunscreen I’ve ever used. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
