Just got a tattoo yesterday can I add more details or do I have to wait?

Asked by: Sweet Angel Bubbles 164 views Skin & Body , ,

I got a feather tattoo yesterday but I have been thinking of adding a quote along one side of the feather but not touching it, since it’s not touching the original tattoo can i go do it or do I have to wait until it’s completely healed since it’s right next to the tattoo? kind of confusing sorry, hope I explained it well enough. – Thank you

    You can go back but the skin will be tender. I suggest waiting until it’s fully healed and see whether you want to go ahead with the quote. Also, you can get a touch up on your feather if needed.Answer mine

    The skin around your tattoo will most likely be swollen/inflamed. I’d definitely wait a good 2 weeks or so until it’s completely healed. In the meantime, take care of it well to help speed up the healing process if you’re impatient.

    Wait until it heals. Your skin is way too tender to handle getting poked a million times over and over again with a needle. Patients is worth it.

    You should wait around 6-12 months before getting anything done in that area it has to heal up. The tissue around it is also healing too.

    You need to wait until it is completely healed before getting another tattoo no matter where it is on your body
