  1. First thing I would do is talk to the artist, or if you're really concerned about an infection speak with your doctor.
  2. I agree, even if you can engage in bartering you can really help them out
  3. I'm not saying that everything is great, as it certainly is an inconvenience for both of you. They lost the day of work too. Im sure they would rather have been working and making money too. Also, the deposit is there to protect the artist. It will still go towards your overall cost. All you can do is reach out and state explicitly that you will or will not be at the next appointment. Again, this is certainly less than ideal. All i was trying to say was that this hardly seems to be worth this amount of online stressing and venting.
  4. Just like any other job, people get sick. And then while they recuperate, and focus on health, might not respond to work stuff for a few days. Doesn't seem like a big deal.
  5. I had one that got REALLY infected on my tricep, and when it finally healed all it needed was a quick touch up to pack some more color. Like others have said, all you can do is maintain your aftercare and wait for it to heal fully.
  6. If you are seeing your doctor today, bring it up with them.

    Are you applying more moisturizer than usual? Could be clogged pores
  8. Also, 9 days is nowhere near long enough to tell. It will take at minimum 4-6 weeks to heal, and sometimes even longer to actually settle. Only then can you tell what the skin will look/feel like.
  9. Depends on your skin and how it heals. Just enjoy it! (not like you can take it off and start over, right?)
  10. Honestly, it looks good! That placement is one of those spots where depending on how the arm is positioned it can look a little wonky. My guess is it looks straight when your arm is straightened out/natural. (I have a dagger on my tricep and it only looks "straight" in certain positions haha) Let it heal fully, and if you still want the line size matching, you can always have that done.
  11. Wow...totally didn't read the part about weakness and lotion. Yea that makes no sense

    My first tattoo

    Nope, just healing. Give it a couple more weeks
  13. Might have beat up the muscle a little bit, when I got my tricep piece done it was sore for a good 3 weeks. If you have access to it, a good unscented lotion with CBD really helped
  14. The skin just isnt done healing yet
