/fa/ I got a tattoo on my arm last Friday that's been scabbing. Some text in fraktur 1.5 inch tall. I applied A&D oil next two days like my guy recommended, maybe I used too much, the whole thing was evenly scabbed a couple days later. Not a ton but it is visibly raised.
It gets very dry if I don't air it out or wash it. Should I be keeping it dry so it finishes scabbing and falls off or keeping it moist?
Keep it moist. I used unscented lotion on mine (simple hieroglyphs around my upper arm).
Don't "wash" it too often, and only very gently rinse for a little and softly pat it dry. Like, when I got mine done I tried to keep that arm out of the shower stream as much as possible.
Kk will do. I've been told to use unscented lotion but not sure if I should've applied while its scabbing.
Says intrus. The air's very dry lately and it's been kept covered because winter. The scabbing got 'worse' today, edges are white, the t has a crack and some of the bottom of the S has even fallen off, but the ink looks perfect underneath. Seems like I can just wait for it to fall off naturally.
I would just contact the guy who did it but I'm in a different city and don't have my phone. It's my first, btw.
It is fine, keep using that product you have from beginning. Dont scratch, let it breathe at eventually it will fall off after few days. Remember to keep moisturizing even after it falls off
Cool. Thanks, fellas
