More Soap

Well it's time to start ramping up production for the holiday season. From the left top we have Orange Patchouli, Spearmint Patchouli, Saving Face (lemon tea tree) 4 Virgins & a Hussy, Dead Sea Mud. Below we find Stout Man (bay rum) Rose Sandalwood and some overflow and sample sizes of the above soaps. I have had a blast this past week making these soaps. Now I just have to find a place to store them!

Day 7

Well I think the tatt is all healed up. no more peeling and the itching has calmed down quite a bit. I'm not altogether pleased with the uneven coloring of the fill, but whatchagonna do? I think it is only visible up close anyway. FaerieMade's balm is da bomb. I think it has really helped with the quick healing of the tatt.

Day 6

the secondary peeling has begun and the itching is maddening. The ink on the fill looks a tad uneven to me but I need to give it another week before I judge.

Here is today's tattoo pix. Most of the surface skin has fallen off and it has begun to itch. It is hard not to scratch it. I've been using calendula oil on it but now I have a great balm by my friend who owns FaerieMade Soaps. It is in a lip balm tube so it is very easy to apply and carry around. So far the healing is looking pretty good.

New Tattoo

This is the evolution of my latest tattoo. For some reason the first pix is on the bottom and the 3rd day pix is on top. I've been very good about not picking at it and have been slathering it very lightly with calendula oil for the past 2.5 days. I just received my tattoo balm from FaerieMade and will use it from now on. My oil would have probably worked just fine but the balm is in a lip balm tube and is much easier to carry around. I'll post pix over the next few days to show how it heals up.
