aww I like it, don't forget to keep it well mositurised with a non-white antiseptic cream!

ooh don't use savlon as it can take the colour out of tattoos, try to get some acriflex or germoline cream (which is more of a yellow colour). I've got a lot of tattoos (too many perhaps, but it don't stop me getting more!) and acriflex is especially good because its a burn cream its also very soothing. hope that helps a bit

Yes that's what I've always thought too :o

also piles cream is meant to be very good for tattoos, where did you have them?

a lot of tattooists do that but don't know about the bleaching that savlon can cause. I've seen people's tattoos bleached by salvon and I've got one myself before I knew better. I'm not having a go or lecturing or anything like that, it might be that savlon will be ok with you; I've always used (since my first tattoo after using savlon) acriflex. But it's totally up to you, I don't want to start an arguement on the best aftercare skin cream because this thread is about your new tattoo! :)

Not down there that's for sure! LOL On my upper arm, they wont be seen all the time as I don't really like to wear short tops exposing my flabby arms! ;D

well, as you know, I don't like tattoos ;D

However, it doesn't even look that sore!

:P :P It wasn't painful at all. I'm used to injections and pain anyway. I guess it's your level of pain threshold? :)

It's pretty much all cleared now! I put some germolene on it last night as it itched, but it's fine! :)
