    Tattoo healing; lines change?

    Hi everyone! So, I got tattooed on the back of my neck last Friday. The tattoo artist seemed knowledgeable, the place was clean, and it was a good overall experience. I didn't get the standard bandage; she used SecondSkin, so I had to leave it on for 4 days. I then removed it and started cleaning it twice a day with water and soap. I also apply moisturizer 2-3 times a day. I noticed the ''shape'' of the tattoo seems to be changing. It's hard to take pictures because of its awkward spot. I attached a ''freshly made'' picture, a ''day I removed the bandage'' and a ''one day after I removed the bandage''. Pretty sure it started scabbing (not heavily though, as it's not even itchy or anything). Let me know if it's normal please! I'm a bit afraid it won't go back (at all) to what it looked like freshly done. Thanks! S.

    Second Skin was a patch used for burnt victims. She told me to leave it on for 4 days and that it regenerates the skin and forms a ''blister'' (I checked it out online, it's legit!) It's really evolving from day to day, it looks pretty good today! Already peeling.

    Also; the tattoo doesn't hurt nor was it ever sensitive (except while being done). I feel fine!

    Tattoo and Holiday!

    Hi everyone! So, I don't have any tattoos at the moment but I've been wanting a specific one for the last 6+months. I decided I finally have the guts to do it, but I have some timing questions: The tattoo will be about the size of a quarter. It's basically just a symbol, black ink. It will be located at the top of the neck, just below where the hair starts. I am thinking of going in next week. I am leaving for Bali in a bit more than 2 months. From what I read, the tattoo SHOULD be healed enough to be able to tan/swim. Considering the location of the tattoo, it won't really be ''soaking'' or directly exposed to the sun since my hair will be down most of the time/the angle will not be too risky. What do you guys think? Should I even worry about the ''going on Holiday'' point or with such a period in between I should be good? Thanks!
