  1. I don’t know that they would have to or even would. For a tattoo that small it wouldn’t surprise me if they just went over the whole thing again to keep it even. Talk to your artist and let them make the decision to go over the entire thing or not. Also let them decide if you should wait longer before the touch up. There is no reason to think it would heal any faster. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. The artist will more than likely go over the whole thing. It will probably take longer to set up than to execute it. I’d give it another month to heal before hitting it again so that the deeper layers of skin have a chance to fully heal. If it’s a free touch up still tip. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/250623236 A lot of people with the same issue. I wonder if it has to do with ink color and saturation. I tried my wife’s series 3 and the 5 I bought and both had the same issue. Works on non tattooed wrists but not on my sleeve. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Covering it is about all you could do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Just a heads up to anyone with sleeves or heavily tattooed wrists - the Apple Watch may not work correctly for you. I had to return mine because the sensors would not work through my tattoos. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Anytime you have a tattoo that’s that small and composed only of a few lines, many of which are either straight or circular, you are going to see flaws. There is no “touch up” that’s going to make it look any better. It would more than likely ruin it altogether. My advice would be to live with it awhile and see if it grows on you. If not, you’d have a lot of options to cover it up if you go to a good artist and give them some freedom. Best of luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. So why would you assume it’s the tattoo now? Makes no sense. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. 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
  13. You are way overthinking this. Get tattoos you want and like. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. 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

  17. It looks infected Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. 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.

  19. 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
  20. 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.

  21. 700 U.S. dollars or 700 Rand? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. 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
  24. 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

Seems like snake oil to me. Anyone have any experience with this company or their products? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
