I’ve spent so much time over the last week pulling my hair out over writing code and developing the new TattApp that I’ve neglected my other duties – including updating my blog.
I finished up a black and gray skeleton on Kim who happens to be my most frequent client. She’s been coming to see me for over 4 years now. Despite that I was super happy with this tattoo I did on the back of her thigh, the text I got from her a few days later was sobering. She was in pain and worried her Tattoo was infected.
I was worried too. 4 years with no issues and now suddenly a possible infection. The only thing I did differently this time was I bandaged her with that Second Skin product.
I immediately contacted the three other clients I had used the Second Skin product on and asked about their experiences. All said it was painful removing the stuff. One healed fine, and another felt he had a quarter-sized spot that looked and felt prone to being infected. Ugh!
So I am going back to plastic wrap. I contacted Kim this morning for an update and luckily she said it was feeling better. So I’m hoping disaster was averted.
Yesterday I did a wolf in memory of a young man’s grandfather. And today (Memorial Day) I started on that big half-sleeve coverup. Careful planning is paying off. We got a nice 3-hour session in and everything is looking good.
