I never scabbed when I used Bepanthen but did while using Savlon and things. I think it's normal.

Some people do, some people don't - it's nothing to worry about!

I've always used Bepanthen and the only part of my tattoo that has scabbed [and I wouldn't really call it proper scabbing] was some of the red on my koi. But my tattooist said it's likely it was a reaction :]Bright red with brilliance just like the blood that came shooting out of your eyes

i've heard bepanthen is brilliant for tattoos and means they don't scab as much. all sounds fine

I used Bepanthen and there was no scabbing for me at all...Kirsty.

I've not had huge scabbing with bepanthen, savlon causes scabbing because of what it is, and in my opinion bepanthen gives you a much cleaner, brighter result.

I use bepanthen and I scab like mad but its just down to the fact i always scab regardless :( (saying that some parts dont scab to much).

its sunday and my scabs i do have on my tatt are starting to come off , the color underneath is beautiful very vibrant cant wait for the lot to come off so i can see my tattoo properly.
i havent had to buy any bepanthen as, my tattooist aaron gave me two little tubs of it , and as you know you dont need to use alot on it just enough to cover the tattoo.beware... ceramicists and potters are the ninjas of the art world!
