Tattoo infection? ?

I got a tattoo 2 days ago. It looks like this. I’m wondering if it is infected or not. I have 15 tattoos and this has never happened before. It’s also really tender and stings when I move my arm

    No it doesn't look infected.  I had the same problem with my sleeve . But turns out I was using the wrong type of ointment . Did your tattoos give you a aftercare sheet? Put some moisturiser on , make sure it doesn't contain petroleum so stay away from vaseline. Wash it every morning and every night before bed in a antibacterial hand soap. Dont smother it in cream though as that will halt the healing process . I'm sure it will be fine though.  Good luck ...

    It's fine, you've only had it two days and haven't given it chance to heal yet. You need to wait at least 2 to 3 weeks, for some reason red tattoos take longer to heal.
