Why is my tattoo still red?
I got my tattoo about 5 days ago, and its on my forearm. Im a fairly skinny guy so I dont think that would affect the healing process. I use an anti-bacterial soap and Lubriderm to sanitize the area about 2-3 times a day. It has already starting peeling but its still red in some areas. Am i doing something wrong? This is my first tattoo and its covering my entire forearm.

Your skin went through a lot of trauma. And peoples skin differ. It's not uncommon for the skin to be red for more than a week. Doing the right thing, but how are you washing it?

What did you expect? It's toxic ink underneath the skin.
