Check this out. This was my first tat. The circled area is where the artist really chewed up the the skin. Not only is it shiny, but there’s actually a noticeable indent in my leg there. It eventually healed completely. No shininess, no indent. I am missing ink in the middle of the line but that’s easy enough to touch it when I can be bothered.

Tattoo Goo and products like it are a waste of money. The “silver skin” will go away over time. As stated, although the skin is healed after two weeks, it can take up to a couple months for the skin to finish regenerating. Your tattoo also no longer requires moisturizer of any kind unless you normally use it. Hope this helps.

i think i’m just buggin out about the time factor.. 5 weeks/2 days and it still looks crazy, while I got another tat on March 9th and it’s healing up great so far that it looks fully healed….. FML lol

It all depends on the artist and the part of the body where the tattoo is. Different body parts heal differently and some artists are more gentle than others.

Relax! Tattoos can take three months to heal.


210 inking hours and counting.

Tattoos are for the living. Tombstones are for the dead. Get a tattoo for yourself!

It can take around 3 months for a tattoo to fully heal and it will go through stages in that time. Just take care of it like you would any other wound and it will be fine.
