The only part that bugs me about tattoos is the itching period. (and don’t tell me to take benadryl it doesnt work on me). I got my new tat about 5 1/2 days ago and it’s in the itching phase. Trust me I know not to scratch and I won’t. I managed not to the first time I won’t this time either. I do slap at it though. So itchy!! The pain doesnt bug me the itching afterwards does lol. 😀

I know exactly what u mean haha it sucks. Right after the tattoo session is over the first thing I think about is in a few days how bad the itching is going to be haha. But honestly it just make me feel more accomplished when it’s all healed, if that makes any sense. And you can always try putting a bag of ice on your new tattoo.

I use a rubber spatula and smack it when it starts itching. It sounds weird but it works well and doesn’t seem to mess with the tat.

Yea. its been 10 days now and it’s quit itching 😀 In fact i went back to the place cuz it’s kinda uneven (the dude in their at the time said that happens alot with red ink and where mine is pure red..because of the whole bleeding thing) and the guy that did it wasnt there at the time but he said to come back next week when it’s had more time to heal (and for 9 days…this was yesterday…that it was healing fast too…Oo i normally heal slowly but hey whatever. the faster the better I guess. maybe because its small or the shoulder idk. It’s already finished peeling, and stopped itching). Anyway he said it should only take like 10 minutes to touch it up and all should be good 😀

Can you/did you put a photo up yet? I don’t know that I’ve ever seen an all red tattoo. I’ve heard that reds are a pain to heal and set and you have to be careful with them because they fade fast. That said, it’s cool that he’s willing to retouch it up for you…. Keep us updated!

Yea I will. It’s healing fine I think and he said it’s doing good. I do have a pic up but only one so far is the one i took the day i got it done. the pic is when it’s only about an hour old and i got april 25th…i’ll get another pic up there eventually. I’ll letcha know how the touching up goes next week! its a bit uneven…hence why the touching up is needed. some parts are lighter than the rest but they guy said it’s healing real fast and good 😀 and a little touch up should fix the unevenness.

You know what one time after getting some ink my arm was itching sooooooo bad, and I was putting some Bactine on my grand baby’s cut and I said what the hell I’ll try it on my itchy arm and guess what it worked
the itching went away. Give it a try next time 😀

I got it touched up 4 days ago (tuesday) and its peeling again. It’s nice that the touch ups are free 😀 I guess it should be fine once its fully healed and i will take a pic then and post it 🙂
