  1. I did 2 stick and poke tattoos, one small and one big. Both look good, the ink has stayed where it's supposed to be and I love it every time I see it.

  2. Ok every time I get a new tattoo my mom or stepdad slap it to “set the ink” and they say its necessary. I don’t believe them. Somebody tell me if this is true or not.

  3. I usually leave my wrap for about 2 hours max then I’ll wash it in warm water them apply some bepanthen (it’s an antiseptic nappy rash crème) then I leave it open. I’ll repeat washing and applying the bepanthen before bed then that’s all I do until it’s healed then I apply loads of moisturiser throughout the day for about a month but everybody is different.
