Millions of people around the world have tattoos and they have only grown in popularity over the last 20 years. Tattooing has now become a distinct culture of itself and many artists are becoming renowned for their work in the field. Since it is a mostly permanent decision, there are many things to consider before, during and after the tattoo process. Researching a reputable and clean tattoo shop, perfecting a design and determining placement, and deciding what products to use when taking care of your new tattoo are all critical choices that must be made that can influence the outcome of your tattoo.
The Tattoo Process
Your skin is composed of multiple layers. The first layer is the epidermis and it continually produces new layers, while also shedding the old. The dermis lies directly beneath the epidermis and remains stable. A tattoo machine is a handheld electric machine that uses needles to make punctures in your skin and implant ink into the dermis, which is what allows the tattoo to become permanent.
Why Tattoo Aftercare Is So Important
After you’ve spent so much time designing the perfect tattoo, choosing the best tattoo artist and reputable shop, deciding on the perfect location and sitting through the pain for the beauty in the end, it can all be for nothing and ruined if you don’t take the proper aftercare measures. If you’ve never gotten a tattoo before, you may not be aware of the importance of tattoo aftercare. Keeping your new tattoo clean and moisturized is crucial to the longevity and success of your new art. However, not all cleansers are created equally. 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.
The worst that can happen if proper aftercare is neglected is infection. A new tattoo is an open wound and needs to be cared for as such. There is also risk of inflammation, irritation and permanent scarring in addition to infection. New tattoos require regular washing and hydration minimally.
