    it will heal just fine. my artist went way to deep & one of my fairies is very “blurry” compared to the other ones. since it is just stars they will be able to go back over it & redo he colour. just talk to your artist.

    Keep putting the A&D ointment on it. Don’t put to much on it or it won’t breathe right. It is normal for it to scab up and don’t pick at the scabs. It sounds like it is NORMAL

    keep applying your ointment and it should be fine.

    It’ll scab for a few days and feel like you got a sunburn, but then it should heal. If the scabbing lasts more then a week, you may have a problem.

    ADDED: And yeah, don’t pick at the scabs or you may pull the ink out and then it will look like hell.

    it should heal just fine. just be careful you don’t let it get infected. my friend got a tiny star on her foot and ended up with an awful staph infection.

    these cases in the above link are some of the more rare and serious ones. just be careful and make sure to clean it properly and you should be fine. good luck!

    if he went in pretty deep, it should scab.

    switch from a&d to bacitracin is its scabbed pretty bad. A&D is not recommended as it will not allow the skin to breathe properly.

    once it’s completely healed, your skin should look shiny for the first couple of weeks, and you will more than likely scar.

    Whatever you do, don’t pick at the tattoo, this will just make matters worse

    next time, ask the artist if their tattoos usually peel or scab.

    tattoos that have been properly done should peel not scab, and feel like a sunburn, peeling like one to

    your tattoo is fine, just keep putting the ointment on it. a tattoo is basically a cut with ink in it, so some amount of scabing, bruising, bleeding, etc. can be expected. if it itches DONT SCRATCH your fingernails can transfer harmful bacteria to the tattoo while it is still healing. scratching also increases the risk of removing the scabs before they fall off naturally. if u pick or scratch off the scabs they will take ink with them and u will have to go back to get it touched up.

    There is nothing wrong with it. It is just healing up! Keep put a&d on it.

    DO NOT PICK AT SCABS BECAUSE U CAN MAKE IT WORSE.

    it’s going to scab.
    keep up whatever you’re doing, let it heal.

    If your artist has given you blowouts (going too deep) then thats his fault and he should correct it free once heeled. You will tell if he has once its heeled, you will have lines with spots along them, random spluges along thin lines. This kind of schoolboy error is only useually done by tattooists with very limited experience, amatures.
    Good luck !
