Hi. I just got a tattoo on my fore arm, and it is really red around it and swollen. I have no idea if this is normal. The Tattoo itself is scabbed, but it's also flaky. Some of the color ripped out of it actually, which I am not happy about. But anyways. It hurts, and it's very itchy but there is no red bumps. I have no idea if this is an allergic reaction, infection or if it's just irritated because it's new. I have been putting Tattoo Goo on it and Aquafor, I've been cleaning it with the tattoo goo soap and anti bacterial soap.
I have no clue when the scabs are supposed to start falling off, but it's flaking.
I have aquafor on it now
