I got this tattoo last week in London. There appears to be blowout/blue tinted skin in the portion circled and other areas of it. I emailed  where I got it done (a refutable place) and they said to wait it out until the 3 week mark. Does this look like healing or blowout to you? Do you think it’d go away on its own or Is it treatable with laser if it’s blowout? I realize it’s minor but things like this bother me haha. I’ve attached pics. Im also wondering what you think the cause was, I have been careful but maybe not careful enough with clothes rubbing, etc? I read blowout is usually the artists fault. Also, above the om symbol, the dot has a blemish/ potential keloid on it and the ink is very faded. Im wondering if once the blemish is gone, the ink will reappear? It’s been a little over a week and this is my first tattoo. I’m really concerned it was my fault. 
 
thank you!!

It does look a little blown out. For future reference, perhaps tattoos are not a good idea for those of the OCD nature because ALL tattoo lines bleed in the long run, and lots of designs fade over time. Tattoos change and age just like people and their skin, so don’t think any tattoo you get will stay the same. If you consider getting laser surgery for small blemishes for no other reason than because it annoys you, then maybe you should not be tattooed. Maybe I’m wrong here

@WillowFrog haha yeah OCD is a disorder and it does run in my family. Thanks for the input. It’s my first tattoo. I’m more concerned about the fact that my skin was turning blue and I know nothing about what that means. I get it happens now. This tattoo means a lot to me and actually means a lot to my OCD disorder which is ironic I know . Obviously no tattoo will stay the same with age. I just want it to heal correctly and if I’m doing something wrong I’d like to know which is why I’m here. I love tattoos and hink there beautiful so don’t tell me they’re not for me.
