Greetings, Body Art Fans!
I don't get tattooed as often as I did when I first started, just a little over 20 years ago, but I am still getting new tattoos. In fact, I just got a new one on my right ankle a little over a week ago. My personal healing process doesn't seem to have changed much: day 7 I just start to itch like crazy! But it did inspire me to make this newsletter all about what is helpful to know for when you are getting or healing a new tattoo.
