so here it is. Sat through it just fine. Last 30 mins was the only sorta painful/unpleasant bit, just as he was doing the white highlights. Was about 5.5 hours in total.
I think Mill Younger did an amazing job with it and really captured the feel of the original. Im stoked with it and definitely interested to see how it heals.

How long am I supposed to “care” for this? Its been 2 weeks now that ive been rubbing bepanthen in to it, 3 times a day. I think the skin has fully peeled now.
The tattooist said 3 weeks but that kinda seems extreme. Like, ill do it, but is it necessary?

Bepanthen is awful to be honest, I'd just leave it alone now.
The ingredients for bepanthen were changed a little while ago and it's a pretty shiity thing now, way too thick and greasy. The best thing you can do now is leave it alone as much as possible and once all scabs are gone give it amonth and see if it needs touching up. Rubbing it that many times a day is likely to have knocked of bits of scab that weren't healed and it may leave some scarring or lifted some ink out.

Haven't had a single scab mate. It peeled for about 2 days and that's about it. No scarring either.
It looks like it has healed well so perhaps I'll just leave it now like you say. Cheers

It seems like every tattoo artist I've gone to has given me slightly different aftercare instructions, ranging in degrees of specificity. I think the most prescriptive version I got was to use Aquaphor 3 times a day for 3 days, at which time it would normally start peeling. Then switch over to a regular lotion once or twice a day (basically as needed).

It all depends on the type of work you've had done, how heavy handy the artists is etc. Bepanthen is dog fudge now though.
Scarring only happens if you're rubbing it if it has scabbed, the best results I've had is just keep it covered for about 6 hours , rinse with warm water and let dry naturally, cover it again for a day then let it breathe.
Then leave it alone as much as possible. If you do need to put some cream I'd suggest cocoa butter or preparation H (cream not gel) spread as thinly as possible a couple of times a day if needed. Whatever the most natural product is you like basically.

Alright fair enough, I'll leave it for now and just see how it goes. If I feel like it's starting to dry out or whatever I'll run some more in to it.
And sorry I got mixed up before. I'm using stuff called After Inked, not bepanthan. I'm just used to calling it that as my brother used to use it a bunch when we were growing up (he's covered in tatts) so the name has always stuck with me.

Mine has not hurt or been uncomfortable at all. Sometimes it will get a little itchy around the edges but that lasts just seconds. I'd say it has healed well but I'm mainly talking fudge as I've got no experience with this. I'll attach a quick photo, let me know
