Your tattoo messing up after two days is quit normal. A new tattoo looks likes it's covered with whitish, cracking film. Add a little lotion to your tattoo to help keep it moist and encourage those flakes to come off. Do not scratch, pick or peel them and in a couple of days the color of the tattoo will get back to normal.
Tattoos always look amazing when they a first done. Once the scab falls off it will be lighter than it was when you first got it even of it's color or black ink. And depending on where you got it on your body will affect it too for example hands and elbows tend to be much lighter since ink doesn't always take to the skin so well in those areas. But most artists will do touch ups for free so after it heals set up an appointment with your artist to go over it again.
