It kind of looks like post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation...happens after certain skin conditions or injuries. I got some after a heavy laser session once. If that's what it is it will slowly fade away over time

Try the Mother of all creams, when i had a dodgy clingfilm rash (unconfirmed if that was the actual casue) that wouldn't go away no matter what i applied, that sorted it out. The drawback is that this stuff is stupidly expensive at 35.

I have the same problem with this stuff. Screwed up one of my recent pieces. It took a while but the rash did finally fade. I'll stick to using aquaphor and scent free lotion in the future.

I love Saniderm way of healing. I haven't had problems except this last time I had the same as you, a band of hyperpigmentation in response to inflammation and trauma of an area.

The odd thing is, I had a welt from the fancy fabric medical tape I used to secure the saran wrap the first night (I let leak out overnight), I washed it off well and figured it'll be okay in the Saniderm. That's where the reaction was worst and some bumps around places. 2 things changed - the medical tape was new and I suspect my open skin doesn't like Bronners soap but loves it later on. I ordered some green soap like what is used at the shop and my skin feels much better this time around.

TLDR - check your soap and other materials. Think about being sensitive to that and then sealing that shit onto you.

Random question, but I thought I'd ask it in this thread..

Do you guys ever breakout after getting shaved and a tattoo? The past couple days I've broken out with a bunch of little white head pimples on my arm.

The piece appears to be healing fine aside from that. Not sure if its something I need to escalate or let play out on its own.

That is pretty common. Also you might be over moisturizing

I'm thinking that its a result of the hairs growing back in + moisturizer = blocked pores

Should I just wash it and let it dry out for a couple of days and see if that resolves it or still apply a very little amount of lubriderm?

Not sure if straight up drying healing is a bad thing or not but I'm going on 2 weeks

Dry healing is ideal. The moisturizer is mostly to control the itch. Either go super light on the lotion or none at all

When this happens to me I ease up on the moisturizing and it clears right up. My bet is that you are overdoing it because it's your first tattoo and you want it to heal well. I used to moisturize 4 or 5 times a day and now I'm down to 2. That seems to be perfect for me and my healing has been drama free.

Or I could have just said listen to ThrobbingSausage. He pretty much nailed it. I used to think it was bad to let it dry out too much but too dry is way better than too moist.
