So, I got a message recently about posting update salabrasion pictures. I want to apologize to that person....SO very sorry. We were in the middle of mid-terms, now we're closing in on finals and I've just been WAY busy. Really, you have no clue but I thank you for understanding.
I mentioned to that person that, once classes started, I realized I wasn't going to be able to keep up with this blog. I just don't want to delete it because of that info on salabrasion.
Because it's been a minute, I forgot what pictures I've posted so I'm just gunna go ahead and post. Sorry if they're repeats. :)
Ok, this was a few days after the "procedure". It was very sore and raw. I took pain medication for about 2 days afterwards. We were constantly dressing and re-dressing the area. I made sure not to get it wet, sweaty or dirty. We'd really just put a disinfecting cream, and cover it. This was on my neck so my hair would get the tape unsticky...it was a pain (annoying). I admit, I was worried when I saw that the tattoo was still visible like this. But it DOES start fading. I actually think that our re-dressing it actually slowed the scabbing process but who knows.
This was about 2-3 weeks post-salabrasion. You can see it had started to scab (crucial to healing) but this was honestly the worst! It got SO itchy! You know how you scab your knee or elbow and you want to scratch or pick at it? Ok...imagine wanting to pick and scratch this big area! I caved 2-3 times and I even feared my scratching would lead to an infection but, thankfully, everything was fine. Still, one must be prepared for this. It NEEDS to scab....NO scratching!!
