So, through a combo of bad timing, sketchy terrain, lack of sleep, and (mostly) poor technique, I ended up doing this:



Now, instead of saying "Indomitable Spirit", is says "Bad Technique" :rolleyes:

Anyone have any experience with injuries to tattooed areas?

Keep moist until it heals , care for it like you would care for a new tat .

Worst case scenario you'll have to get a little touch up on the scar tissue. Think of it as the exclamation mark on your "indomitable spirit".

ETA: If you had shaved your legs it would have only been a slight bruise or abrasion at the worst.;) :D :rolleyes:

I might have to do that, which would be fine. There's been a bit of fade over the years from constant pad and heavy bag training. Now, a few days into the healing, it looks a helluva lot worse. I guess we'll see in a few weeks what it'll heal up as.

Do you mean the tat or the cut?
Haha, funny guy. At least I know I play hard enough to earn and deserve both the ink and scars. :rockon:

I have a similar sized tattoo on my shin as well that I gashed up pretty bad one night after I slipped on some rocks while shore fishing.

It healed okay, but I still had to do some touch up because the outline and some of the shading just didn't look right after it healed completely. It went from sharp contrasting black and gray to prison tat in terms of quality.
