  1. I see, that is what my artist told me. Is it still in the healing process? Is it healing slow? Because it’s still hurting after a month and it hurts a lot more when I don’t wash it or put lotion on. The pain comes and goes. Usually when I wake up or go to bed and it sometimes gets irritated.
  2. It just hurts, but it’s more deeper. It comes and goes, never consistent. Usually when I wake up or go to bed when I haven’t washed it yet or have put lotion on. Sometimes it still gets irritated. According to my artist, it has healed nicely. I’m wondering if it’s an allergic reaction or the way I would position my arm when I would sleep for the past month to avoid damage to the tattoo. Sorry, I really don’t know how to explain it properly
  3. I was told it’s probably an allergic reaction to the ink. I’m going to wait it out for another month and go from there.
  4. I’m not concerned so much about the lotion. It’s still aching after a month is what I’m saying and wondering if I should be concerned about it.
  5. Unless I’m not explaining it correctly, that’s a different story. Either way, it’s still aching after a month and wondering if I should be concerned.
  6. I used Cetaphil for almost 3 weeks and switched to Lubriderm recently. They both don’t have Lidocaine
  7. I’m not sure what to say then. It is what it is.
  8. I need to clarify. The muscle ache goes away when I put lotion on, but when I don’t it aches.

  10. Hey guys, it’s just been one month that I’ve gotten my tattoo and I’m still experiencing muscle ache and very little weakness on my arm when I don’t put lotion on. When I do, only the muscle ache goes away. Is it something I should be concerned about?
  11. Thank you for replying back to me, it’s been helpful. Not sure if I should feel disappointed or what.
  12. Hey guys, I’m new here. Just wanted some input on my tattoo since my artist keeps saying everything looks good, but it doesn’t seem to look good to me. I’m three weeks in and as time passes by, the lines are getting crooked and thick. Some lines are staying thin like the first time I got the tattoo and the rest is thick. I noticed this the first week and thought it was a blowout so I contacted my artist and he said everything looks great. What do you think is going on here? I’m wondering maybe it’s my fault? I’ve been taking good care of it. Sometimes I notice some of the letter want to peel but aren’t peeling. I’m slightly annoyed and wished I was happy with my tattoo as it is very meaningful to me. What are your thoughts? It’s my first tattoo. Sorry for the crappy pictures.
