Aftercare And Tips

Tatto Aftercare

After getting your new tattoo, proper aftercare is essential to ensure optimal healing and to preserve the vibrancy of your ink. Here are some basic tattoo aftercare tips to keep your artwork looking its best:

  1. Keep it clean: Gently wash your tattoo with mild, fragrance-free soap and warm water. Avoid scrubbing or using harsh cleansers to prevent irritation.

  2. Moisturize: Apply a thin layer of tattoo-specific ointment or unscented lotion to keep your tattoo moisturized. This helps prevent excessive dryness and itching.

  3. Avoid picking and scratching: As tempting as it may be, refrain from picking at scabs or scratching your tattoo, as it can lead to color loss and scarring.

  4. Clothing choice: Opt for loose-fitting, breathable clothing to avoid rubbing and irritation on the fresh tattoo.

  5. Sun protection: Keep your tattoo out of direct sunlight and avoid tanning beds during the healing process. Once healed, always apply sunscreen to protect your tattoo from fading.

  6. Avoid swimming: Refrain from soaking your tattoo in pools, hot tubs, or natural bodies of water until it’s fully healed to avoid infections.

  7. Listen to your artist: Follow any specific aftercare instructions provided by your tattoo artist, as they know what’s best for the particular tattoo and its placement.

  8. Stay hydrated and eat well: Good nutrition and hydration support the healing process, helping your tattoo look its best as it heals.

Remember, every tattoo heals differently, so be patient and diligent with your aftercare routine. By following these basic tips, you can ensure that your tattoo heals beautifully and stays a stunning piece of body art for years to come.

Avoid Direct Sun

Direct sunlight and tanning can fade the tattoo and increase the risk of complications. Wear loose clothing to prevent irritation and minimize friction, avoid tight clothing and excessive friction as those may cause excessive rubbing or sweating on the tattoo. And remember to  use sunscreen with a high SPF after that to ensure longevity!

No Scratching

Avoiding picking or scratching or peeling off any scabs or flakes that may form during the healing process. It can lead to scarring and affect the overall appearance of the tattoo.

Wash Up

Remember to truly wash your hands thoroughly before touching the tattoo. Gently clean the tattooed area with mild, fragrance-free antiseptic soap and temperature water, and always tap dry. 

Moisturize

After your tattoo is clean, apply a thin layer of fragrance-free lotion to keep the tattooed area moisturized. Do never use any  petroleum-based products as they can clog the pores and make it prone to infections.

Keep Dry

Avoiding excessive moisture, soaking the tattoo in water for prolonged periods, do not swim or bathe in hot tubs, as it can hinder the healing process.
