    Wasn't sure where this topic belonged, but when I tattooed a kid today she rubbed her ears all over the face of another goat. Any way to get this green ink off?

    I tattooed yesterday, I had one Saanen to tattoo and somehow she managed to get green ink all over her even though I only handled her head :roll:

    Baby wipes work though :)

    I usually just let it wear off, unless I'm taking them to a show. A tip to help them not be so messy though is to sprinkle baking soda on the fresh tattoo as soon as your finished working the ink in. Cuts WAY down on the green mess afterwards. :)
