Well, my career as a bikini model is definitely over. I have quite the ashphalt tattoo (about the size of a deck of cards) on my butt cheek. Been causing me a LOT of pain. It’s just not healing in a timely fashion. I try to cover it with gauze pads, etc. – but they invariably shift and my clothing ends up welded to my skin after sitting on it for extended periods. That is not fun to peel apart!! It basically feels like I sat on a hot stove for a few minutes.
Word of advice – do not use topical Arnica ointment on wounds that are still oozing. I was hopping around and kicking things for 15 minutes to get through the burning sensation. WOW!
