What are the symptoms of tattoo poisoning?

Some of the Symptoms of Tattoo Poisoning are swollen skin and irritation. Other symptoms are flaky skin, rashes and even dry skin.

How long after getting a tattoo should you keep it covered?

Every tattoo artist tells you something different... but I kept it wrapped for the first 5 hours.... let it air out.... then for the next 5 nights... wrap it in plastic wrap & ointment... make sure your new tattoo doesnt dry out.

How long until you can shower with a new tattoo?

You can just want to be pretty quick..and not let the tattoo get saturated. No swimming or hot tubs etc for 2 weeks. After your shower, allow tattoo to air dry for 10-15 min, and re apply A&D ointment--THIN LAYERS!!!

How long after getting a tattoo will the scab form And after that how long will it take for it to fall off?

You can expect scabbing to start 2-5 days after your tattoo. Don't panic when ink seems to be flaking off in the scab- this is part of the healing process, and does not affect your tattoo most of the time. It is really important to not pick at the scabbing as your tattoo heals, this can distort the tattoo, and will require touch-ups. Gently apply a scant amount of scent free moisturizer once or twice a day. When you shower, pat dry your tattoo. Scabbing should be almost completely done in 5-7 days, but sometimes you'll still find scabbed tissue- again, don't pick at it, just let it fall off naturally.

What does the idiom watch the paint dry mean?

It takes a long time for wet paint to dry. If you sit and watch the paint dry, you will be sitting there for quite some time without really accomplishing anything useful. It is a waste of time.
