No red ink. Just black and blue so far. Went back today, all the guys in the shop said it looked like bruising, but they've never seen it like that. It's not the actual tattoo itself, but starting at the bottom of it, and covering a patch of skin 4 inches by 3 inches below it. It's got that weird shade of yellow bruise I recognized from skateboarding days. Also a tad bit "harder" skin like when you get a bruise. Said it may have been from dood holding my arm while doing it. I dunno. He said to try some ice, and call back tomorrow. Said if it was infected, I would most definitely know by now. We'll see how the saga continues.
And yeah, I had plastic on it for 4 hours (guy said minimum of 3 so that the blood can coagulate, and to keep it moist until it does so). To clean it, I let the water run down over it instead of directly on it, washed with soap gently, and patted dry. He said whatever I do, no matter what, do not ever reapply plastic over it. Nanne, if you could live over here, I'd take you down there just so I could watch you two debate it, and then tell you about my hatred for Revolver as well.
