i added a fourth to my collection of children's book tattoos (see page 25 for the other 3). this one is from "figgs and phantoms" by ellen raskin and is on my inner right wrist.
i have a question about it, though. all of my other tattoos are exclusively line work (with the exception of the tiny ants on my "wrinkle in time" tattoos), but this one had some filling in. i don't like the way it's healing. it seems worse than my other 3. i linked to a hi-resolution picture of it so you can see the shiny-ness and stiffness of the skin that's been tattooed. is this normal for a 2.5-week-old tattoo? if not, is there anything i can do to reduce the slight scarring? mederma or something?
and also, i want to get it touched up a little soon because i can tell there are a couple of places the ink didn't take as well, so how long do you think i should wait, considering my skin isn't in the best condition right now and that i might realize there are a couple more palces that might need touchups in the near future?
oh, the picture: http://www.flickr.com/photos/78048500@N00/13350581/
the pic makes it look a little worse than it does in real life in terms of the shinyness, but i wanted people to get the idea...
