Default HELP!

Hi, so this is a basic tattoo question. I have a solid black batman logo i got at a very reputable tattoo parlor about 5 weeks ago. My healing process, however, was horrible. the tattoo scabbed up, and then fell off on its own, i didnt pick at it, and now my tattoo is scarred. well, i dont know if it is. it is NOT raised, but it is silver, not black. i went back to my artist and he said he could touch it up and that it was indeed scarred. i am not questioning his ability because my boyfriend got an awesome tat from him that healed perfectly, as well as other people i knew who went to him. im freaking out because im scared it will never be black. my artist assured me it could be fixed but that it wasn't completely healed, and to come back in 2 weeks. the outline is somewhat puffy (its the batman emblem so that circle part around the logo is SLIGHTLY raised.) but the entire tattoo looks black/silver. is there no hope for my tattoo? i just wanted to hear some people's opinions.

Default Re: HELP!

sounds like you did the first thing right, you chose a professional artist with a good rep. no telling what happened during healing process, I would wait a long time before trying to repair the work, youve got time, a good long wait (couple months) will give the area time to heal fully. then your artist or another can rework this area and give you the piece you were looking for. I would recommend Vince Villavalzo at All or Nothing. He has rescued some older rough work on me and his portfolio shows many a great coverup and rework. no knock on the original artist but we sometimes lose confidence in that person and would feel better working with someone else........just my 2 cents worth
