tattoo aftermath

This was my second tattoo. I got it the summer of ’02, between graduating highschool and moving off to college. I got my first one earlier that year, right before I graduated.

The heart is on the small of my back and didn’t heal very well because it was itchy as hell and I started scratching it in my sleep. So not only was it done in red, which fades badly anyway, the color was flaked off in places.

I hit a friend up from highschool for some ink this weekend and had him touch up my back. This resulted in the following carnage:

I never had this problem in highschool because I was sleeping on black satin sheets. Here’s hoping I can bleach out tattoo ink?

it didn't smear on my skin just stuck to the sheets a little because i'm not used to sleeping on my stomach all night. i'm lucky that this time it doesn't itch uncontrollably, when i first had it done, it was truly unbearable.

i considered covering it, but i'm definitely of the "let it breathe and keep it moisturized" school of healing. and i'm a fucking baby about peeling tape off my skin :(
