Is there a “safe” color option to prevent blowouts?

Recommended Posts

The skin on my right arm, underarm area, that apparently “blows out” every time black is used. I usually like American traditional types that have heavy black outlines. So after two on that arm, my underarm is very “blue”; I get it’s my skin because everywhere else on my body I’ve not had a single problem. I try to search for artist that maybe specialize in thin/delicate  skin or even what I could get that’s a “safe” option for covering the discoloration but haven’t found a thing. I’m willing to travel just about anywhere in the continental US to get it “fixed” because i love the two I already have and even if I went for a full cover up, if this is a problem area for me what’s to say the cover up won’t be a mess too?

The top of the tattoo is fine. It’s the bottom, on the more delicate skin. On the other tattoo that’s at the top of my arm it’s only a small corner of it that looks bruised, the corner getting close to the underarm. If it is artist, like I said I’ve done “searches on google” but that didn’t yield much. Maybe I’m not searching the right things. 

But if I got something really bright & colorful, maybe that would be better?

I have the same on one of my arms 

the artist went too hard plain and simple 

i know this as it was my daughter who did mine and when i told and showed her she backed off and the rest was fine as its part of a sleeve its repairable as its an area thats going to have fill in it anyway

 

it taught her a valuable lesson that all skin needs to be treated differently in different areas of the body.
