i am shedding skin like a fucking tegu


can’t find a good pic of argentine tegu’s shedding their skin so here is a leopard gecko shedding instead.

my back is shedding like a leopard gecko who has poor husbandry.

when i untucked my shirt a shower of skin flake confetti drifted to the floor. currently shamefully sweeping it up and putting my black tattoo skin flakes in the trash.

@bee oh geez is that a common thing that happens after tattoos?

@thatchers_piss_slut yes! every tattoo peels during the “dry heal” process, it’s super normal. its most noticeable for tattoos that have a lot of saturation, like full color or blackwork tattoos, as there’s more coverage of the ink and bigger flakes that will flake off, haha. usually a couple days of shedding like a bad sunburn and then it’s all good.

@bee oh okay very interesting! i will be on the lookout for that tomorrow when i am getting my tattoo aa thank you

@thatchers_piss_slut peeling probably won’t start until days 2-4 and you can skip the peeling phase if you use saniderm or another dermal film for healing. but just listen to your artist! they’ll tell u how to care for it. :)
