There is quite a bit of thought that goes into getting a tattoo. Consideration of design, placement, artist and shop are important choices that should be weighed with importance. But what happens after you’ve gotten your tattoo? Tattoo aftercare is one of the most crucial parts of getting a new tattoo. It can make or break the success of all of the other good choices that were made prior in regards to design, placement, artist or shop.
After carefully choosing the design and spending time in the tattoo shop chair to receive the perfect application, it would be unfortunate to have your new tattoo degenerate in appearance due to negligence in aftercare. New tattoos need to be hydrated and can potentially crack, scab improperly, peel or damage in other ways that can have unsightly effects on how your tattoo looks once it has healed. One of the biggest consequences of not using proper aftercare techniques is fading. Those beautiful vibrant colors may be lost and turn your new tattoo splotchy and dull if care is not taken.
