Exclamation my new tattoo is hot..help?


I have five tattoos and they have all healed really well and i've had no problems. Anyway I had another tattoo about four days ago and i've been doing everything right (as i was told by my artist) to heal it. As of yet though, it has not scabbed and always seems quite moist and sticky to the touch. Worryingly though, it's hot to the touch...surely this can't be normal? It doesn't look inflamed though, which I guess is a good sign

I find having a beer (or 10) after getting tattooed helps cool it down.

In recent years I've started popping the occasional ibuprofen, as these are anti-inflammatories, and help take down swelling and heat in the tattooed area.

A few/areas of mine have been hot when healing. Usually if i've had a session of heavy colouring as opposed to shading/linework. It usually only lasts for a couple of days (if that) though.
