Hi so I feel like I might be overreacting here, but I got a couple of new tattoos exactly 2 weeks ago, I’m just a bit concerned about the way everything’s healing. I’ve had a few other tattoos done in the past and only one of them is raised because the artist was a bit too heavy handed. This is mostly why I’m concerned because I know that if it’s happened before, it can happen again. I went to a different artist this time around and he’s done one of my tattoos in the past which healed perfectly fine, but it’s small and on the other side of my arm so I didn’t really watch the healing process all that closely. These ones cover my entire forearm so I’m paying more attention to it this time around. I know it’s normal for tattoos to look a little odd (dull/shiny) for a few weeks, but because I have dark skin, I know I might be more susceptible to raised scarring (keloids). That’s my biggest worry, really. I know it might be too soon to tell, but I guess I’m just wondering if it all looks normal for the stage that it’s at? I know everyone’s skin heals differently, but I guess I’d just like to know that it’s not uncommon for tattoos to look like mine after 2 weeks. thanks! some photos of the healing tattoo https://drive.google.com/open?id=18uoEUL1pYtnBzAu75AQcBRHreYxw0Uia
I just got a new tattoo two weeks ago. It’s just semi-thick black letting on the side of my wrist and relatively small, a little more than an inch long. At first everything seemed to be healing normal and quickly, but since the scabs fell off, it feels a little raised above skin level and it’s very shiny. Sometimes I see little white areas around it where it looks like it’s peeling, but not significantly which makes me wonder if this is the final look. Can anyone offer insight on if this is normal or if there’s something wrong? Photo 1 Photo 2
