Yes. It's just part of the scabs falling off. Since they use a needle to inject the color under your skin, you get some multicolor scabbing because of the ink mixing with blood. Don't worry. Just dont pick it off! If you do the ink can come with it... And you dont want to have bald spots in you artwork. or scaring.

Recently got a tattoo on forearm and there are blisters appearing on certain parts of it could anyone tell me why this is happening is it infected or is this normal?

First of all are the blisters on just the tattoo or are they on the surrounding area? If the blisters are found to be in the tattoo and the surrounding there is not much to worry about. I have seen this many times and it usually comes from shaving too close (it's like a razor burn). Now, if it just on the tattoo you may be having a reaction to the soap that was used during the tattoo process, or, you may be having a reaction to the aftercare you are using. YOU ARE USING A TATTOO AFTERCARE, YES! If your tattoo is older that 10 days and you still have these small blisters, try using straight alcohol to help dry up the blisters. I would not advise using it before the tat is at least 10 days old. If the blisters start to exude puss you should see a doctor immediately and get some antibiotics. Your fist 10 days is critical to your tattoo, do what your artist told you and you should have little to no trouble. If you tattoo was performed at a professional shop, you can always ask to see the autoclave, spore test results, and board of health license.
