Thats normal, even thoough the scab is gone its still healing. The fact that it looks cracked is a bad sign though, its dried out. Get some A&D ointment, its found near diaper rash cream,...this will help your tattoo. If you dont do something soon it will continue to crack and scab and your color will come out.
Yeah, I asked my mom, she's a pediatrician she said Vaseline, Petroleum Jelly, Aquaphor or any other lubricant. Apply this often and it should work... Good Luck!
The best is A&D ointment or a nonscentes lotion like lubriderm. Put it on everytime the tattoo feels dry and NEVER pick the scab.
The scab is gone but now it looks all cracked like dry skin
I used Vasoline...that's what they told me to use.
