What causes tattoo blowout?
Tattoo blowouts occur when a tattoo artist presses too hard when applying ink to the skin. The ink is sent below the top layers of skin where tattoos belong. Below the skin’s surface, the ink spreads out in a layer of fat. This creates the blurring associated with a tattoo blowout.
How long does it take for a tattoo to heal?
How long does it take for a tattoo to heal? After getting a tattoo, the outer layer of skin (the part you can see) will typically heal within 2 to 3 weeks. While it may look and feel healed, and you may be tempted to slow down on the aftercare, it can take as long as 6 months for the skin below a tattoo to truly heal.
Is it normal for a tattoo to scab?
As your tattooed skin heals, it will begin to scab. This is totally normal. It’s important not to pick at or scratch off the scabs, as this can ruin your tattoo. That’s easier said than done, as scabbing tattoos can get itchy as they dry out.
Does sweat ruin new tattoos?

Should I let my tattoo breathe?

Do tattoos get infected easily?
