  1. Well, getting right into it, I got my first tattoo 2 days ago. For the most part, it's going fine, I love it and it seems to be following the usual healing process. I do, however, have a little dent (about 3mm) and I'm not sure what it is (no smell, pain or discharge). When I finished the tattoo I didn't have it but after cleaning it a few times, while drying with a piece of paper, I noticed littles flakes of skin and ink coming out. Since then I have been more careful, but am just a bit worried. I've been searching around and haven't found anything that LOOKS similar, but from description I have two possible explanations 1- it was overworked and the skin caved in a bit; 2- when I dried it, I could've removed skin, since it was softer. I'm having a hard time taking pictures of it because it is so small, but I appreciate any help (: (in case anyone is wondering, it was done at a very reputable place and I am meeting with my artist in 2 weeks to see if I need a retouch, it was included in the price)
  2. 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!
  3. Hello! I got my tattoo a month ago. It still looks like it is healing. It was supposed to be done after 2-3 weeks. It is raised, wrinkly and very dry. Any help on how to make it look like a normal tattoo?
  4. Hello to everyone! I'm new here and I got my tattoo a month ago. It still looks like it is in a healing process. My friend got one too and his healed 2 weeks after getting it done. What should I do to make it look like a normal tattoo? It is raised and looks really wrinkly and dry.
