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

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.
