*IF Your Having Problems With Your Tattoo…
-If Your Tattoo is healing improperly, hurts, scabbed, or is breaking out, it was probably from complications with aftercare. It could be a number of things from just minor irritation, acne/pimples, allergic reactions, or a number of possibilities. In Most cases, it is from applying too thick amount of ointment. Consult your Tattoo Artist with any questions, and he will provide you with information on how to correct your problems. If need be, the proper forms to resolve the situation. Most complications can be healed properly by adjusting minor aftercare instructions that will work for your body.
At InkMaine, we guarantee to offer free tough ups to any Tattoo we do, upon these conditions…
As long as it was properly attended to during Aftercare, and is within 1 year of original Tattoo date.
