I got a half sleeve tattoo my arm is swollen
The first portion of my tattoo was from my shoulder to Mid arm then from there to my elbow I got the second portion done yesterday and now my elbow is really swollen and part of my bicep is this normal there's no redness the tattoo looks fine and it doesn't really hurt. Thoughts?
Given the sheer amount of ink used, swelling for a few days is expected. If swelling gets worse, comes with reddening of the skin or pain to the touch (beyond what it is now) or fever - go to a doctor.
I have a full sleeve and swelling, especially around the elbow is expected. Clean it a few times a day and moisturize it. If you truly have concerns about it, I recommend calling or going in to your artist and asking them about it. Super cool ink!
