Since then my tattoo has healed about 80% however i have these very sore areas that are raised and have constant broken skin I have images here:




I've been to the doctor twice now & have been giving antibiotics and a mild steroid cream. I have used 2 different moisturizes however nothing seems to be healing it.

This is was my first tattoo I have had one other since then on the right arm and that has healed perfectly with no issues.

Thank you for anyone who has read this and will take the time to reply.
Hi mate

It could be scaring. It will need touching up. Please don't go back to that so called artist.

Don't mean to be harsh mate but it's not very good work. Half those lines will fall out, they are not straight, some areas are too close to each other. Basically it's poorly done as I could go on but get it healed and then see what you want to do with it

Your tattoo artist is an absolute turkey.

I'm not a doctor but those look like granulomas, or some form of allergic reaction. Could be that you are allergic to something in the ink they used. If all sorts of creams prescribed don't end up working for you, you may be looking at laser removal in the future...

Oh, dear. It's funny because it's true.

Laser awaits, man.

Sorry mate that line work is shocking, wonky, patchy and just generally terrible.

Next time you choose a tattoo artist, post their work here so we can check it out first. We can give you input before you schedule the appointment.

I might recommend stopping any form of moisturizer or lotion. It doesn't sound like it is helping anyway, and it could actually be irritating it. Your skin at this point possibly just needs fresh air and to completely dry out and heal.

I had a very rough healing with one of my tattoos. It's scabbed horribly and it took about 2 1/2 months to completely heal. By that time, I lost a lot of color. I went to a different tattoo artist and had them re-work the tattoo to make it look better.

I would give it another couple months. See how it turns out. Then plan on either laser, a cover-up, or having a high-end tattoo artist rework it if possible. You are most likely heading towards laser and a cover-up. And while I understand it's a bitter pill to swallow, it's not the end of the world. After all is said and done, you may end up with the awesome sleeve. Just definitely not with this tattooer.

In the interim, stick around these forums and try to learn as much as possible.

Cruel to be kind. Now you know not to go back there. I'm sorry this happened to you.
