my FI is a tattoo artist (see my little picture there) and breakouts like that can happen when you don't let the skin breathe. i would DEFINITELY not use a&d on the tattoo as some people can have bad reactions to this and it may cause some scabbing. get a good brand of UNSCENTED aloe-free skin lotion (we use regular lubriderm.. and if you use scented lotion it feels like your skin is on fire.. trust me!!) and only put a light coat so your pores don't get clogged up. if your skin doesn't start to heal in a few days i'd definitely get it checked out, but i've seen (and had) similar reactions myself just caused by the lotion!
and my two cents on the tipping... do it!! i think someone made the point earlier, but unless you're getting one from the shop owner, there is big time profit share. my FI's is 60/40, so they really don't walk away with much at the end of the day. there isn't a set amount.. whatever you're comfortable with, but know that it is GREATLY appreciated. of course you don't have to if you don't want to, but your artist will love you for it!

I believe in tipping for any service... hair, nails, etc... I think tattoo's would count!
