With so much awareness surrounding public health and cleanliness, many are becoming more cognizant and reevaluating their own personal habits. While it is a welcome thought process, it is also a reminder of how we should have always been thinking and operating. When it comes to tattooing, attention to sanitation levels should always be considered during every step, from application through aftercare. Aftercare is such a crucial part of tattooing as it determines the appearance of your tattoo over time once it has completely healed. By taking the proper aftercare measures, your tattoo can look bright and beautiful for many years to come.
Once you have had your tattoo applied at a sanitary tattoo shop, aftercare becomes the next focus. Aftercare is essential to the life of a tattoo as it has a big effect on the appearance over time. If proper aftercare measures are not taken, you risk fading, blotchiness or scarring. The main goals are to keep it clean and keep it hydrated. By completing these foundational aftercare measures, your tattoo will be able to remain bright and clear as time goes on.
Keeping your tattoo clean is imperative to the health of you and your tattoo. Tattoos are open wounds and must be cared for accordingly. In the weeks after getting your new tattoo, you should be cleaning the area at least twice a day. This will encourage healing and reduce your risk of infection. Minimally, a mild antibacterial soap is best to achieve this. H2Ocean’s Blue Green Foam Soap is specially formulated to effectively wash your new tattoo without causing excessive damage or drying, ensuring a better tattoo healing experience. Enriched with aloe vera and minerals, this soap will help you moisturize your skin while disinfecting your tattoo. It’s also safer than harsh chemical soaps that burn the skin, antimicrobial, antibacterial and fragrance free.
An additional benefit to the extra cleaning you’ll be doing is that it will also remind you to wash your hands and the areas you’re in more frequently. H2Ocean’s Blue Green Foam Soap is portable and kills 99.9% of germs which makes it a great sanitizer and cleanser for your hands.
When it comes to sanitizing for your tattoo and your health, quality and consistency is key. Using a complete sanitizing solution that is antibacterial and antimicrobial for cleaning your new tattoo and your hands is an unbeatable combination that will help to protect your tattoo and health.
