Hi Jessica, yellow scabs on your tattoo do not sound like a healthy healing process – unless the colours in your tattoo create the yellow colour. It is normal that a light scab forms over the fresh tattoo after a few days, but the yellow colour indicates inflammation, which the tattoo artist and possibly a doctor should take a closer look at. Please consult your tattoo artist to find a appropriate way of dealing with this.

You can find more information about tattoo healing processes in our Advice Hub here and here. We also have the article “Advice For An Itchy Tattoo” in our Advice Hub.
