    Day 6, the oozing stopped after day 3, it was looking great. Starting to form crust like, and getting ready to peel. Now this morning after shower, which I don’t get it wet, it’s bleeding in areas that are very cracked like. Also bleeding in the areas that got stuck to the sheets when it was oozing. It’s on the forarm, which I know is a tender spot….but day 6. This can’t be normal? I’m afraid to put lotion on it while it’s bleeding so letting it just air dry.

    Sounds like the artist may have overworked the area or you have clotting issues. I would recommend a light coating of antiseptic cream and get it checked for any signs of infection as you have to make sure it keeps clean.
    I would recommend a visit to the gp and get it checked.
    Also do you have a current photo?
    Take care

    The only difference between a person with tattoos, and a person without is this. The person with tattoos does not care if you do not have any.

    just a side note,you should have been washing it 2 or 3 times a day since it was done in warm water with the palm of your hand with a OTC anti-microbial soap,no swimming/submerging,but you certainly need to wash it,that will help get rid if the loose dry skin and scabs if any.

    It was infected, and I had to go on antibiotics and Predinsone to reduce the swelling.
    It is healed now, but will definitely need a touch up. Only problem is I think that I am allergic to the Brand of ink that is used at this tattoo place. I have never had an issue before. So I’ll have to get another artist at a different place to do the touch up, but not for a while. Want to make sure it’s completely healed first.
