Tattoos are a great way to express yourself. The insertion of ink, through the use of needle is inserted into the dermis, the second layer of skin. This is what causes changes in the skin pigmentation, allowing for the creation of artistic images. This is a very popular art form that has been around for ages. There are various ways to generate a tattoo and, there are many different types of tattoos. Permanent makeup is a highly requested method that has become popular in recent decades. It too was used in ancient times in the form of eyeliner, lipliner, and eyebrows.
Risks of new tattoos
Some say that beauty is pain and that saying goes for tattoos and piercings too. Because the tattoo artist, along with the assistance of their needle and ink, is puncturing ink into the dermis layer of skin, this can leave room for complications if the tattooed area is not properly cared for. There are a few different things that could possibly go wrong. Your artist should always prep you and provide risks and care instructions as well. By knowing the signs, you will be able to notice the symptoms in the event that any were to occur.
Any person may experience:
- Allergic Reaction
- Signs of Infection
- Irritation, Burning, Swelling
How to properly heal a tattoo
Your artist should cover the area with some type of protective wrapping after finishing the process. Depending on the estimated time frame that you have been provided with, you should then remove the bandage and gently wash the area with antimicrobial soap. Next, rinse the area with water and pat gently to dry it. Apply another layer of antibacterial ointment twice a day and let the area breathe. Continue this routine for the next 2 to 4 weeks.
The most ideal care routine is being prepared and using the best aftercare products. H2Ocean’s Ultimate Tattoo Care kit satisfies both of these suggestions. Designed for all stages of healing, this kit uses all natural ingredients to optimally heal your tattoo, keeping it moisturized to ensure your new art will stay beautiful for years to come.
You should also be cautious not to wear any clothing items that are too tight or clingy depending on the area of your newest tattoo. During this time frame, you should also avoid direct sunlight and chlorine as well. This next period will probably provoke you to pick, itch or scratch at the area. It is important to keep it covered with ointment to prevent you from compromising it. This will protect against the removal of the ink coloring and it prevents against any bacterial infections.
This is the best method of healing your tattoo, it requires minimal efforts and you simply have to clean it, dry it and apply the correct ointment. In the event that you feel that your tattoo is not healing correctly, you may return to your artist as well as your care provider. Due to the fact that ink does fade over time, it would serve a great purpose to use sunscreen when you expose your skin to sunlight. You should always keep your skin moisturized and hydrated, especially your inked areas.
