  1. So why would you assume it’s the tattoo now? Makes no sense. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. IMHO the best way to protect it would be to skip exercise classes until it’s a little more healed. I don’t go to the gym or do any type of intentional exercising until it’s about a week and a half to 2 weeks healed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. You are way overthinking this. Get tattoos you want and like. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. So don’t watch it heal so closely. The only real communality in healing tattoos is that it takes time. Give it a month or two. Hands are delicate areas and move a lot and tend to take longer to heal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. If it were me I wouldn’t be putting ointment or any heavy lotions on it at this point. Those are to avoid heavy scabbing. Looks like you are already scabbing heavily. Be careful showering and don’t smother it or you run the risk of swelling the scabs and them falling off early. Probably going to take longer to heal and you may need a touch up.

  9. You are right it’s not accurate or a good way of comparing cost and I honestly thought goods and services in the U.S. and South Africa were closer. 600-800 seems like a pretty normal shop minimum after looking at a few well reviewed shops. I’d see what the shop says about it. It really doesn’t look like it was applied well from the pictures. As long as it’s no longer open I’d try putting some aloe on it to help with the scarring. That and time could really help settle the scarring. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. In the U.S. that amounts to about $45. That would qualify as a cheap tattoo. You very much get what you pay for. Just because someone owns the shop doesn’t mean they are a good tattooer either. You really should be looking at portfolios and healed work as well. You could try putting fresh aloe on it from the plant if you have access to some to help minimize scarring.

  11. 700 U.S. dollars or 700 Rand? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Go to an artist you trust and let them draw on you. Go in with a loose, general idea and give them enough freedom to make something work. I’d expect geometric patterns to be a bit more difficult for a cover up because you’ll need to completely cover or utilize the existing lines. Expect to go quite a bit bigger than what you have there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Advice Needed

    If it’s just those little areas I wouldn’t worry too much about it. The tattoo is still very new. If it’s obviously not infected I don’t see the reason for putting antiseptic on an already irritated section of skin. If it were me, I’d leave it be and let it heal and settle then see about touching the spot up if some of the ink fell out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Seems reasonable that it could be altered. Any pics? I had a cover up done of a solid black tattoo. My artist was able to pound green into it and have it show over some of the black. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. https://inktheoriginal.com/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwt5zsBRD8ARIsAJfI4BiEI5aB8RNIep1EMyGKhyGCNw5M_qrhOY_jPmKNm3UgmWcdmnJlO3AaAsRaEALw_wcB This crap keeps getting advertised to me on Facebook. Seems like snake oil to me. Anyone have any experience with this company or their products? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
