    I know alot of people out there do the 'dry heal' method where you dont use A&D or anything just let it scab up...has anyone gotten any infections this way? My arm is pretty swollen from trying that out right now :o

    i prefer putting a little bit of aquaphor on it and then blotting with a paper towel.

    Well its been about 5 days so ive switched to lotion, just trying to figure out if the swelling is from infection because it doesnt look too badly infected, or if he just dug into my arm really deep....or if i just got too much at once as i had him finish my whole forearm in 4 hours

    If it does get infected, you will definitely know. Just be gentle with it

    is there dark black/green pus coming out of it? hot to the touch? dark redness surrounding the tattoo? does it stink? if you answered no to those than it's not infected.

    i typically use a&d the first day or 2 then switch to lotion only when it feels dry.

    never had any problems

    its not red, not hot to the touch but once in a while it just got hot all over, it smells funny, and the side area got the little infected puss area...

    I don't do that method, I have sensitive skin and need sensitive skin shaving cream an all.

    I use a black cat or h2o for the first 3 days then lubriderm a few times a day for 20 days. yes, it's weird but my tattoos always heal real slow compared to people I know. Same artist/etc... it's just me. Everyone is different, do what works for you.

    It's only weird if you actually count out 20 days on a calendar then on day 21 say fuck it and just stop taking care of it.

    wat about gym time?

    so, one week of healing before the gym, right?

    Then, just come home and take a hot shower and clean it thoroughly, then lotion?

    Im back in the gym on saturday, cant wait much longer hahaha
