Default Is baby lotion okay to put on new tattoo?

The tittle

Also is it normal for it to peal kinda like sun burn stype stuff... im not touching it or pealing it off.

Btw i got it done on the 30th and am still cleaning it with the cream they gave me its kinda like the bepanthram stuff.

I'd refer you to your previous thread, and the fact that if you have a query about the aftercare of your tattoo while it's still healing (and it is still healing) then you should speak to your artist. Sorry to be a bore on that, but seriously, it's the best thing to do.

"Away or something"? So when is he back?
You were told to wrap it for three days - so you still need to wrap it today and tomorrow.

Personally I wouldn't put baby lotion on a healing tattoo,. And make no mistake, your tattoo will still be healing on the 4th.

This is true but like twenty five million people said to unwrap it.

"Like twenty five million"? Funny it was five million in your other post.

Ultimately, its your tattoo. Do what you want. The person who did the tattoo has advised you what to do; they've done a pretty decent job of the tattoo so I see no reason to believe that they don't know what they're talking about.

However, if you feel you know better based on anonymous posts online, do that. I've tried to be nice and point out in your other thread that it's natural to worry, and you should just follow your artist's advice, but that's not what you want to do....so just do what you want. The worst that will happen if that it won't heal as well as it could, and you'll just have to live with that. In the end, it's your tattoo to care for / ruin as you wish

fella,
as Mr. Cookie Hound has said already, listen to what your artist has said.

- why would you go to all the trouble you have to find a (very) decent artist thus avoiding the usual 'first tattoo' syndrome - think you mentioned how pleased you were with that in another thread somewhere - and then risk arsing it up by listening to randoms on the t'internet - some of which could be those artists you've been so pleased to avoid??

and please stop prefixing things with 'like' we're not in an episode of Friends, nor are we teenage girls...


ps. lovely tattoo by the way!
