Ask the tattoo artist.
Seems normal to me.
Don’t fuss with it.
Use regular unscented lotion.

Yes don’t over do it.
Are you maybe allergic to the lotion?

yea you can see the dead skin fall off, it wasnt has bad as before, alot came off in shower, i mosturize it now.
I find that I have to wait a long time after a tattoo before I put it in direct contact with water. Sometimes it’ll be six weeks before I can put it under a shower, or else it dries out and the skin peels horribly. Maybe try avoiding putting the tattoo underwater, via wrapping it for a shower, and see if that helps it from getting too dry. You still want to wash it, but I use a cloth, soap, quick rinse, and pat it dry after. Some people can wash a tattoo off in a shower a week after getting it, but that is not me.
Also try a different lotion if you find yours isn’t keeping it moist enough.
