have you been keeping it moist enough?

yeah, i moisturized a few times a day with the same kind of moisturizer i've used for all my others.  i've been a little lazier about it since my last scab fell off a couple of days ago, though (just moisturizing one or twice a day).  i'll be sure to be more vigilant about it and hope that helps.

it looks perfectly normal, although i'd say it is healing a little slowly.  the greater the size of the area you get tattooed, the longer it takes to heal.  line work heals way faster than filled-in places.  continue to take good care of it, and give it time to heal.

letsread-- looks normal (and great!) to me.  I'm a fiend about moisturizing tattoos.  I'm vigilant about it for the first six months (and always sunscreen when appropriate).  My suggestion-- keep moisturizing and wait a few months before retouching the ink (ink settles as skin heals and regains elasticity).

letsread.. Yeah, I would have to agree with everyone.  Just keep lotion on it and once the ink settles in, it'll be fine.  With filled in work, you have to think of it like you got a really bad sunburn.  Sometimes, they even peel more than once.. but just keep after it with the lotion and you'll be good.

There is no life I know, to compare with pure imagination. Living there, you'll be free if you truly wish to be...

phew!  i'll keep it good and moisturized.  that's the problem with wrist tattoos... you stare at them so much you notice every tiny thing that you think might go wrong!

thanks for all your advice!

jackee-ohh.....what the fuck is that on your back?HuhHuhHuhHuh

Hi...um.. I'm sorry it made you say the "F word". 

It is a combination of two pictures by Sam Brown, the artist for Explodingdog.com.  The one on the right is "The white sound in my head," and the left one, which is brand new, is titled, "All men die, not all men really live,"

Here are the links for the original pictures:http://www.explodingdog.com/august6/menlive.html

People email, or postal mail the artist (sam brown) a sentence, phrase, or word, and he creates a picture from it...he usually uses those stick figures...but he also uses robots, clouds, monsters etc...Sometimes things are silly and fun..and although they are just stick figures, sometimes the pictures are really emotionally charged.  He hand draws some stuff, and does some on a computer notepad and he posts it all on his website.  He does gallery work and sells some originals on ebay occasionally too.  I think they are beautiful and blissfully simple.

Where exactly in the yard?  On the croquet lawn?  By the bird bath?  Marty, where do you think we should bury these babies with webbed feet?  The back yard is getting very crowded i think.  positively littered with corpses.  First daddy's and now duck babies.
