However, if it's been a couple of days and you're leaking, that is more likely a signal that you're using way too much ointment on your tattoo. Certain ointments tend to cause more leakage on some people than others - ease up on whatever you're using. You should only be adding a tiny amount, barely enough to give the tattoo a bit of a shine. If it feels wet after application, you're using way too much. If decreasing the amount doesn't help, stop the ointment altogether and switch to another product or just keep your tattoo clean and forget the ointment for a couple days and then switch to lotion.
If your tattoo is hot to the touch, very red, and/or oozing something thick that is yellow or green, or has a foul odor, these are signs of infection and you should see a doctor immediately.
