Why is my Tattoo Peeling and Flaking Off?

Peeling and flaking of a new tattoo is perfectly normal. Before it actually begins to peel, the tattoo will look like it's covered with a whitish, cracking film. Then you'll see white or translucent flakes of old, dead skin start to peel off and some of the flakes may even contain some ink. Sometimes you can actually see a duplicate image of part of your tattoo peeling off - it's rather disconcerting, but it is also perfectly normal and there is no need to panic.
 It's a lot like a snake shedding its skin.
Just add a little lotion (a LITTLE) to the tattoo to help keep it moist and encourage those flakes to come off.
Do NOT scratch, pick or peel them.
It will all be done in a few days and the color of your tattoo will start to return to normal.

EXTENDED SITTING TIPS

Tattoos are an open wound and as such, an attack on your immune system. so be healthy in the weeks or days leading up to a long intense sitting, by eating and sleeping right.
-on the morning of the sitting, eat a healthy breakfast even if you're nervous. it is VERY bad to get tattooed on an empty stomach. you need nutrients to sustain energy and pain tolerance, and sugar in your blood to withstand the adrenalin rush and thus not get light-headed  bring some food and drink with you to snack on during the day's sitting.

-remember to focus on disconnecting your mind from the area being tattooed, through any number of meditation, breathing/relaxation, or 'mind over matter' techniques...bring books or similar distracting items if you think they may help with this.

-healing a very large tattoo is very similar to preparing for it, and the first 4 items in this list pretty much apply to healing as well, in addition to the preferred healing instructions of your tattoo artist
