Default hand aftercare of tattoo

a very good friend got his hands tattooed, done the usual after care.
looked at his hands about 2 weeks after it had healed...sort of.?

well its like the skin went wierd, like hard. almost like a very tuff skin over the surface.

its o.k. now.........but at the time it was very strange scabbing.?

do many hands go like this for a short time.?

the guys tattoos are smooth now and well healed no bother at all.

just asking if this is the norm .?

never had this before just.?

Fred, you will find exactly the same thing happens if the 'nearly healed' scabs are helped off!
