    First tattoo colour loss?

    I got my first tattoos (2 of them) about a week and a half ago. One of them is a red heart on my wrist outlined in black. I’ve been washing them 2x /day with unscented soap. My tattoo artist advised me I didn’t need to moisturize the tattoo and that it’s best to leave it alone to heal. She did say if it’s cracking or really dry to apply a thin layer of unscented moisturizer. So, heart tattoo became very dry within 3 days and began to crack. I started using a thin layer of aquaphor once a day. It’s been a little over a week now and the scabs have fallen off however, the red is barely visible. My tattoo artist did say colour tattoos would be difficult because of my skin tone. I’m just wondering if colour tattoos will really be such an issue with my skin tone? (Because I really love colour tattoos and would love to get a bigger piece in the future) I’m about a medium tan colour. It just seems like a lot of colour loss to me but I’ve never had any tattoos and this is my only colour tattoo. My tattoo artist said she hasn’t done much colour work on anyone with my skin tone. The other is all black and I’ve had no issues with it healing.
  2. Hello, I got this tattoo back in January and it’s still shiny and cracked looking. I’ve been applying Lubriderm a few times throughout the day. Is this a normal part of the healing process or have I messed up the tattoo in some way? Is there anything I can do to fix the shininess or should I just let it be? Thanks.
