Common Ways To Ruin A Tattoo

Table of Contents

There are several different ways that a person can ruin a tattoo…
Standing Water
The first way is getting the tattoo around any standing water. You have to think about the fact that it is an open wound, so you will want to treat it like an open wound. When it gets near standing water, the water can be filled with dirt, bacteria, and other things that can irritate your skin. This is even true of clean bath water because it can still lead to you having an infection or potentially damaging the new tattoo.
The second way is exposing the tattoo to direct sunlight. This is especially true when you are trying to heal from getting the tattoo. This means that you are going to need to listen to your body when it is telling you that you have been out in the sun for too long. The ink from your tattoo is going to tingle like a burning sensation when you have been out in the sun for too long. It is like the feeling that you have when you have sunburn and you go out in the sun. When you do need to be in the sun, be sure to protect your tattoo by using a specialized sunscreen designed for tattoos like H2Ocean Surfers Choice SPF 50 Spray. Safe for all skin types, easy to apply and an ideal way to prevent any damage from the sun.

Doing Too Much
The third way is when you over or under do it. It might be hard to remember how many times the tattoo artist told you to wash the tattoo or apply the ointment. Most people are going to think that it is okay to clean the tattoo more than you need to because it should help. But this is not the case for tattoos, it is very important that you listen to the directions of the tattoo artist when it comes to caring for the tattoo.
The fourth way is when you are picking or scratching at the tattoo. Your tattoo is going to peel naturally as part of getting a tattoo. This does not mean that it is infected, damaged, or falling apart though. It is going to itch also, especially when it is starting to heal. Therefore, if you see any type of scabbing on it, do not pick it. Picking can pull out the color of the tattoo or cause scarring.
The fifth way is touching the tattoo. There are so many things in the world that you can touch that are dirty and you don’t want to touch your tattoo with dirty hands. There are so many germs that can get inside of your tattoo especially if you have not recently washed your hands. It is also a good idea if you don’t let your pets lick it or rub up against it while it is in the healing process. Your children should not play with it and your friends shouldn’t touch it while they are admiring it.
The best way to ensure you do not ruin your tattoo is to equip yourself with the right knowledge and products. H2Ocean’s Ultimate Tattoo Care kit fulfills both of those needs. There is a tip card included to remind you of the proper care and steps to follow in the healing process. This all natural kit of specialized products is also designed to cleanse and nourish your tattoo safely while your tattoo is healing, preserving it to enjoy for many years to come.
