When you've Ignored someone, you'll stop seeing their posts on your Tumblr feed, comments on other people's blogs or in your Dashboard notifications. They won't be able to send you messages or see your posts either. You can undo this by hitting Stop Ignoring next to the user's name on again.

    If you place someone on ignore they can still see your posts. I have two separate tumblr accounts and, just to test,I put my one of my accounts on ignore. I could see my blog's recent posts and comment on posts from the ignored account. The only way you could possibly block someone completely from seeing your posts is if you block their IP address.
