Ok so I am not new to tattoos this is my most recent of many but it has been about 5 days this us a big f lower taking up most of my inside calf eith swirls. The swirls closer to the back were s little heavy handed I think because of the angle and ladt night it was a bit tender and pink around it. Same thing today. So I have washed twice and then applied bactroban ointment to tgat area as it I'd still pink around. Tge whole tattoo has a scab including this part whuch is about the size of a quarter swirl eith pink around and is tender. There is no oozing or heat or smell coming from it just a bit worried. Any advice?? Thanks.

You can decrease the risk of infection if you follow the home treatment steps for cleaning and caring for a wound. Prompt treatment of an infection can prevent more serious problems.
