TATTOO BLOWOUTS – Everything you NEED to know.

TATTOO BLOWOUTS! What you need to know. Plus BLOWING OUT some lines on my leg in the name of YouTube Science. In today’s video we take a look at what a blowout is, how to avoid them, and ways you can fix them.

We start by going over the different layers of skin starting with the epidermis (top layer of skin) followed by the Dermis (aka the sweet spot) and finally, we have the Hypodermis (this is the fatty layer of skin) Where the blowouts take place. Our goal in tattooing is to try to consistently put our tattoo ink into the dermis.

However, if the ink goes too deep and lands in the Hypodermis then you will see what is known as a blowout. This is when ink goes to deep and can no longer hold its desired form and expands under the skin.

Blowouts can be a pain in the butt so learning how to avoid them is key. We will also be going over how to cover up/ fix a blowout in the event you end up with one. Last but not least I will bust out my leg and do my best to show you what a blowout looks like in real-time.

Finally, I will do the unthinkable by slapping my leg to see if hitting fresh lines or a fresh tattoo can cause even more of a blown-out effect in the skin. This one hurt so I hope you enjoy it!! 🤘🤘

So don’t give up if you want it bad enough its yours for the taking!
