Hey guys

So I got a new tattoo on friday on my ribs a bit bigger than my fist.
My artist told me originally that it would take about 1.5 hours but in the end it took 2.5 hours as my skin didnt take the tattoo well and he had to keep going over the same area again and again. He said had experienced this about 10 times in last 4 years.:(

I thought about this after and I’m on acne medication minocyline for my skin. Does anyone know if this would be the reason for my skin not taking the tattoo well?? He said it shouldn’t effect the outcome but I’m wondering if I should keep off the medication for next few weeks just in case.

No, taking an oral antibiotic will have absolutely no effect on the tattoo.

Are you going to bark all day little doggy or are you going to bite?

Good looking tat so congrats! I am a pharmacist and I have not heard or read any literature on minocycline to affect the ink from sticking on your flesh and/or slowing the healing process. You should be good!

Hello,
I think it looks pretty damn good.
What parts required going over? I’ve been told that I take red ink very well. Apparently on others red ink is a problem.

Whats the story?
