I just want to get s little more advice because I'm being told so many different things from so many people. I've originally had a tattoo done on my chest and coloured and it turned out great. I had some of my arm done just a week ago and I want to know what's the best way to prevent scabbing? BecUse my arm scabbed up pretty bad. I was told to dry heal the tattoo and use no cream unless it got infected. Once I got home I was told to take a shower and lightly wash it and then press harder and harder so you push out white blood cells or something. I can't really remember. But im also being told that my artist should never have said to dry heal it and I should have put a cream on it etc. so I'm going back in a few weeks to get the touch up and rest of the colour done. But are there better steps I should take into looking after it so it comes out looking good?
