  1. Yeah.... I been wearing shoes tbh but taking them off whenever possible. I even work with my feet out (teaching pilates) so I don’t wear shoes that often but you’re probably right that it’s partially to blame. Thanks for the advice re touching up timelines and warmer weather.
  2. Little update on this.... turns out, I think the tattoo was damaged with the infection ☹️ Most of the scabs are now away and on the leaf nearest my heel and the word ‘All’ (where the main site of infection was) there is a sort of damaged red scabless centre. It looks pretty damaged and you can see the ink hasn’t taken well. The middle leaf doesn’t look too clever either. It still has a small scab that’s stuck fast. The third leaf looks fine. Although still very milky. Pics attached. Hey ho. A touch up it is. But I can tell the skin is quite damaged so maybe I’ll leave it for a while. Soooo cross with myself! 😡
  3. Thanks everyone. That’s really helpful advice 🙂. After two days on antibiotics, it’s already looking a bit better I think. I’m being super super careful and diligent. Fingers crossed xx
  4. You’re quite right! Thank you. 🙂 Think I was just searching for some reassurance/words of wisdom/the voice of experience on top of the inevitable waiting game, if you know what I mean.
  5. Hi there, I wondered if anyone has had an infected tattoo and it’s ended up still looking good after healing? I got a beautiful foot tattoo just over a week ago and with all the best will in the world, it’s got mildly infected. No pus, no streaks. But red and raised and quite sore after a week. Think I caught it early. The doctors put me on antibiotics which is a relief but I’m worried for my beautiful piece of artwork. The once beautiful leaf detail is covered in scabs and I can’t the detail anymore. I know patience is key and time will tell.... but just wondered if anyone also had personal experience of this to share? I’ve attached pics of it just done and also today so you can see. Thank you, from a manic little sausage in the UK xx
