Is your tattoo supposed to peel?

My tattoo is peeling.


Answer by  stphaniecostello (159)

The tattoo will peel as it heals and is a natural occurence. The trick is to not scratch it or help it along by peeling the dead skin.

Yes, peeling is part of the healing process. When the ink is injected into the skin it damages the top layers, so peeling helps the skin to heal from the tattoo.

Yes, your tattoo will peel as part of the healing stage. It is important that you don't pick at it or pull the skin off. Just let it heal.
