  1. Hi everyone. My tattoo is 11 days old. The black lines in the tattoo have healed well. I am concerned about the black arrow point. There is no infection, but this scab doesn't seem to be healing. The lines on the arrow point seem to be less black than, say, the sun. Are those lighter because it hasn't fully healed? Also, where the scab is, the scab seems to be shallower in the middle, like a small divot or indention. I'm thinking that's because the scab sides are higher. I guess I just expect the scab to be the same on the whole surface of it, not indented in the middle. I took extremely good care of it, following healing procedures from my artist. Please let me know what you think or any advice (or reassurances!). I've attached a picture. It's a bit red because I type at my desk, and my wrist sometimes touches the edge of the desk, so it's a bit irritated. Thanks so much!
  2. Filling Or Shading ?

    Hello everyone. I'm practicing on pig skin for some months, and this forum + the practicing helped me figuring out a lot of things. After a lot of frustration I'm getting closer and closer to the results I want. But there is something I still can't find out. When I want to make a large black filling with an empty space close the outline, i don't know if I should use "whip shading motions" or "filling motion". When I use whip shading motions, it looks like whip shading, obviously ! And when I use small circles filling motion, the black filling is nice, but the ending of it is, or very irregular, or too sharp. I'm using M1s, I was thinking maybe I should use curved M1 ? I don't know if i'm clear, but here is a pic to illustrate. To sum up, I can't figure out how to move the needle to get a result similar to the red circled zones on the pic. PS : Please excuse my english, it's not my native language.
