Tattoo looks shiny, glossy after scabs come off?
scabs have come off, now it looks shiny kinda wrinkly texture but not actually wrinkly is this normal?

yes!!! that is totally normal... it is not finished healing until the shininess goes away in another week or 2!!!
i am a tattoo artist
yep. it's technically scar tissue now. if you run your hand over the thick lines, they might feel raised up for the same reason.
Give it time to completely heal. The new skin is going to be softer then the older skin around the tattoo. It is normal for it to look weird for a couple of days if not longer.
None of these answers doing it for you?
