Alliance Tattoo can usually cover up or fix most tattoos – even really bad ones so you would never even know they were there. We are always honest though. If we doesn’t think it can be successfully covered, we will let you know and work with you on what options you do have so you will ultimately be happy. Our artists never do a tattoo just to make a buck. We takes tremendous pride in our artist’s work and art. Be assured that the artwork on your body and how you feel about it is a reflection on us – meaning your satisfaction is VERY important!
When all the scabs fall off and the skin feels smooth again to the touch, it is all healed and you can shave over it again, and swim and everything else. Sometimes after the scab falls off there is a secondary shiny, raised or waxy coat over the tattoo. This is just another healing layer of skin. Continue to moisturize it and it will smooth out by itself over time. If you have any questions about your tattoo while its healing you are always welcome to contact your artist and have them check it out. You could also email us with “AFTERCARE” in the subject line for a more immediate response.
