If it is a blowout and needs to be covered… How long should I wait? Should I go back to the original artist or seek out a new one? If I go back to the original artist, should I expect the cover to be free or at an additional cost? I tan in the summer, so if I didn’t cover it, would the blowout fade to the point of not seeing it?
It is 11 days old. The entire inner arm was initially bruised for about three days. That showed up around day five. It hasn’t moved or changed colors which is what was causing my concern. In person it is a bit darker. The lines seem fine to me, just the outer flesh turned that blueish color. The artist who did it said it was bruising and I was satisfied with that. Until another artist saw it and told me that it was a major blowout and needed to be covered.
I want it to be a bruise because I absolutely love the tattoo as it is. And I know I will find out eventually, just the wait is torturing me. It’s not sensitive at all. No color changes, no movement. If this is a bruise, could I expect to see color changes any time soon? I’ve heard that bruising and blowouts are common on inner bicep tattoos and I’ve never experienced this before, so I am a little lost.
I don’t know how to add a photo here. But here is a link…
Yep, I got that. I meant in the mean time. I was told certain tattoo bruises can take up to 2 months to heal. Just wondering if there was a way to tell the difference during those two months. I’ve gotten two different stories from two different artists.
