Why is my tattoo peeling and flaking off?

That’s just your epidermis or outer layer of skin flaking off. Like a sunburn or a light scrape, getting a tattoo damages your epidermis. As your tattoo heals, the damaged skin (and the ink it contains) will flake off. However, the ink has also been permanently deposited in your dermis and it will stay there even as the rest of your skin adjusts and heals.
