  1. Update: my dad just told me that I shouldn’t wash my tattoo? That all I should do is dab with a wet cloth? (then again, the only tattoos he’s got are from prison lmfao different rules, maybe)
  2. So when applying ointment, I should get it to where it’s just covered and shiny? I don’t know why I was using so much, my mom suggested “a big glob”. I think I’ve got it now, thank you!
  3. The artist gave me a paper that consists of the basics (i.e. to wash it after unwrapping, air or pat dry, moisturize). The paper writes that I should moisturize it 2-3 times per day, but I've been told otherwise to keep it constantly covered (with A&D). Also, can you wash your tattoo too much? I don't want to find out the hard way.
  4. Hey, I’m new here, so bear with me if I seem out of the loop of everything. I just got a tattoo (my first) tonight, and I have an inquiry. I don’t think it’s anything too serious, but I’d like to know what it is. I’ve seen pictures of blowouts, is this one? Or is it too early to tell just yet? I don’t mind it much, just curious. And on on a side note, I’m using A+D Ointment, but I’ve just read up on some sites that it’s not good for tattoos? Should I switch, or am I safe?
