General / Off-Topic The tattoo is done! Pictures inside!

So the itchiness has started.

Abe' was right. The needle is easy. The itch though? Oh by the Maker is it bad LOL.
I applied plenty of Sudocrem for my Tat, and made sure to eat high Protein food. (Get some Protein powder, make a daily Protein shake).
And avoid laying on it when in bed.

Oh I definitely avoid laying on it. Thanks for the tip about protein. Will remember that.

I of course have been applying cream. Itch aside, it is healing rather well, according to my friends.

The artist did not give you instructions for the convalescence ?

I'd avoid Sudocrem as it's a drawing cream. Ditto E45. Cream for treating burns - Acriflex - was what one of my tattooists recommended. Savlon is also fine IIRC. As is hemorrhoid ointment but that stuff is nasty & sticks to everything.

The most annoying thing is accidentally bumping tattoos. You don't realise how often you knock things until you have a healing tattoo!
