    cool tattoo. no need to cover it up... it'll fit right in with a traditional sleeve no matter which way it's facing. don't overthink it!
    i'd say the "rules" are that tattoos should face forward if they're on the side and face inward if they're on the front or back. i did a quick search of Bert Krak's IG for some examples. The peacocks on the back of the calves both face inwards. But on the client with the eagle backpiece, you can see a skull facing in and a hannya facing out... and no one will say that one's right or wrong. it's not even consistent and it doesn't matter! 😃 Just keep getting tattooed and it'll be all good!

    IMO large tattoos,like full back or full leg or arm sleeve are a sign of the times, large tattoos are a part of the new tattoo world we live in,
    social media has also changed the tattoo world,
    when I started getting tattooed in the early 80's, it was all small pieces,
    back when I started you walked into a shop on a Friday night,picked a flash off the wall,and waited for your turn,
    I have one large tattoo,but all the rest I have are small to medium size,
    to each his own,
    but personally I like the traditional look of many small tattoos,

    well I wouldn't worry about it then,
    and maybe don't use that same gel on fresh tattoos.

    it's a little of  both,  it's skin with a little ink in it that's peeling off,
    looks 100% normal to me.

    Dan reacted to SStu in Tegaderm/Saniderm/Tatuderm healing process   
    Yeah. I'd take it off, clean it good with anti-bacterial soap and let it dry for 30 minutes or so. Then re-apply new derm. 
    You only really need to worry about infection if you get some foreign material in/on the wound area. Many, many tens of thousands (or more?) of tattoos over the ages healed just fine in the same area prior to derm even being invented.
