bleeding ink

Posted by dennis on 10/04/04

i have a question. i got a new tatoo and its location is on the inside of my arm at the bend of my elbow. the ink seems to be bleeding out. i asked the artist who did it and he said it is normal for this to happen. is this true? and is there anything i can do to prevent it from happening? this really bothers me because i just spent a ton of money on it ... thanks ,d

since the area at the bend of your elbow moves alot, it's normal for the color to bleed a little, and touch ups are often necessary.

I just got my first tattoo less than a week ago. It goes all the way around my ankle and right on the bone and tendon it looks like the ink might be bleeding. It looks a little darker than a normal bruise and since it is done in black it's real hard to tell, but i was wondering if there is any way that that is all it might be. I'm really worried about it. It's a beautiful tattoo, but whatever this is just makes me hate to look at it.

I got a tattoo on my hip and the ink bled for like the first week, when I would wash it or put lotion it. It stopped though, and you couldnt tell a difference!! Like it didnt really fade or anything. my artist said that sometimes your skin will reject some of the ink!!

Next time you get a tattoo try this. Right after you take the bandage off and wash it get two rags. Soak one in HOT water and soak the other one in COLD water. Place the hot rag on the tattoo and follow that with cold rag. This will open up the pores in the skin and then immediately close them. This will allow the ink to "settle" into your skin. I've done this with my last few tats and haven't needed any thouch up's at all, while my first few did.

Okay, If I understand this correctly, we are talking about ink bleeding outwards in the skin from its origanal lines or colouring, and not surface scabbing becoming wet and then running. Here is some information for all you suffering from ink "bleeding"
- Over time it is natural for your skin (with age) to bleed ink outwards form its origanal lines, they may even loose there sharpness and fade. But this should happen over many many years and should not be noticeable soon after a tattoo. It is the artists responsability to make sure he or she is NOT pushing pigment too deep into the skin. If this hapens, the pigment will hit the "epidermal" layer of the skin which is spongy, the ink will obsorb quickly and dissperse fast creating a foggy or bruising effect. the lines look larger then they are sussposed to be and have no sharpness to them whatsoever. now with that said it is easy for an artist to make the mistake when lining into an area where the skin is much thinner and quicker to reach the epidermal layer. There are other ways for ink bleeding such as pushing too hard and moving too slowly. when the needles are moved too slowly an effect called "ink packing" occurs, where too much ink is being disspursed into and area and it has nowhere to go but down; thus ink is reaching the epidermal area. There is almost no cure for this and over time this "bleeding" will naturally get worse. Each artist should now the human derma-anatomy and make sure to practice safe skills to protect there name, work and of course customers.

I hope I helped.

The last post on this is rediculous. Never use neosporin on a tattoo, it cause the plasma in your skin to come to the surface and dry, thus creating scabbing. Scabbing will draw the ink from your skin and you will definately need touch ups. Glad wrap is a no no unless your tattoo is a couple hours new. The only reason people put glad wrap on their tattoo is so that no contaminants get to it. Giving it time to heal. You should never sleep with it on or keep it on while the tattoo is healing, its only going to soak your arm with moisture and as you sh
ould know that is also bad for your tattoo. It may also cuase you to sweat which also draws ink from your skin. You should only use a&d 3 times a day to keep your skin soft and moisturized, being careful not to soak it. That's about it. As far as showering just don't soak it in hot water, dry it off right after and reapply a&d. Good luck everyone.

It's perfectly normal for some of the ink to flow out of your tattoo within the first couple of days. Some colors are more likely to do this than others.

There is also a chance, if you've been delicately washing the area over since you got it due to the pain that some ink might just still be on your skin from the initial tattoo. When you re-wet it or when you put something wet on it--lotion, ointment, whatever you choose to use per your own beliefs on what's best--you might see some of that ink that you didn't realize was still there.

But yea, ink coming out a bit is pretty normal, especially in creased areas as someone else suggested. Think about it like a wound. In a creased area, it constantly re-opens and bleeds. The same thing sort of happens with tattoos.

I have the same problem. Got a tattoo 4 weeks ago and it was absolutely perfect and looked great for the first 2 or 3 days. I followed the tattoo after care instructions properly and did everything I was supposed to do...I already have 2 tattoos so I knew what was required during the healing process.

But then after the 3rd day or so, the ink started bleeding around most of the lines. And it's been like that ever since. Absolutely devastated because I can't help but feel that the entire thing is ruined now. The tattoo artist I went to was highly recommended so it wasn't just a walk in on the spur of the moment in some dingy place. I also don't understand how he could possibly have been too "heavy handed" as it was the most painless tattoo out of the 3. (if anything my first tattoo should look like this!)

I'm going to have to go and talk to him about it next week because I'm really concerned about it and it's totally stressing me out; this didn't happen to either of my other tattoos....although I'm pretty sure that some of the ink that has bled out might be fading, it's definitely not as dark as it was after the first few days.

im a tattoo artist and here is a few things to keep in mind your tattoo will allways heal a little lighter than it was done seeping(not bleeding) ink is normal for up to 3 day after your tattoo is done(im covered and all mine seeped a little)never ich or scrach it and never cover it with seran wrap wash it with dial soap about 3 times a day let it air dry!! then apply your ointment. most people over complicate the haeling process, stress out, and blaim there artist,and these things are normal its like painting a wall you can paint a white wall yellow and it will look good but if you paint it yellow again it will be briliant yellow tattooes are all about layers appretiate your artist they dont want to give a bad tattoo and most artist know what there doing trust them and you will recieve quality ink

no your tattoos is not to be bleeding after you get it and i dont think the artist that did it was very professional because im an artist my self and have gave many tattoos before and they have not bleed out mynexxt question is are you putting an ointment on it to keep it from drying out to quickly and how much are you ptting on because if you put on to much it will not let it heel properly and there for you will bleed out like a scab and if you are on any blood thinners or any type of meds that will notlet your blood clot then you will bleed out these are just a few things that the proper artist will ask you before you get a tattoo
