My tattoo is almost a week old and has scabbing on it in some places. I just wondered if scabbing is normal, or if it is a bad sign. Whenever I search on the internet I get completely different answers! Some say scabbing is really bad, and others say that it is normal. I’m kind of nervous about it. I’m being very careful not to knock off or pick at the scabs, at any rate. Thank you for your help!
You most certainly don’t want to pick the scabs off or anything like that. How have you been taking care of your tattoo? There’s MANY different aftercare methods and some work for some people and others for other people.
But scabbing isn’t uncommon, it can happen, especially with how some tattoo artists work…Not just that but also just how some peoples bodies naturally react to being tattooed.
The best thing for you to do is to not pick, allow the scabs to naturally want to fall off. As well as keep the tattooed skin moisturized with a very mild/gentle moisturizer.
Everyone’s different and everyone has their own brands and what not, personally I find Aveeno Moisturizer (Mild/Unscented) works best for my body…
