How long does a tattoo take to heal?

A tattoo is a blow to the skin and an almost superficial injury, such as a scratch. Everyone has different healing abilities and over the years I've met from a week to 2 months. Typically, the healing time - until the scabs fall off - is about 2 weeks, and it takes another 2 weeks for the temporary skin to become permanent and hardened. It also depends on the area of ​​tattooing and, of course, on the care of the tattoo. In the case of amateur tattoos and practically engraving of the skin with subsequent scarring, healing can take even longer, not to mention the possible infection of the wound. If the tattoo is done by a professional in relation to the skin, then the healing should not exceed a month.
