"It's a week ago tomorrow that I had my foot tattoo done. I'm worried that the tattoo is infected. My foot is twice the size of my non-tattooed one, and it's really shiny, red and stretched. The swelling has gone onto my toes and has started creeping up my ankle slightly. I thought that the swelling had peaked on Wednesday, but it seems to be getting worse.
The tattoo is really scabbed over (which I expected), but some of the scabs are really deep, and the tattoo is oozing yellow/green/bloody gunk constantly...I'm really scared that something bad is happening. Surely I should be able to walk and apply a little pressure to my foot now?"
