The Best Way To Take Care Of A Tattoo

Table of Contents

Caring for your tattoo after it has been inked on your skin is an important process to promote the maximum appeal and appearance as well as to prevent infection of the newly wounded area.

Your tattoo artist will make sure that your tattoo gets the best color as well as maintain safety and cleanliness of your tattoo right after. It is very important that you follow their instructions. From that moment then, you are fully in charge.

So, what are the necessary measures that you would be doing to protect your tattoo and yourself? Here’s how:

• Do not remove the covering. Your tattoo artist will let you know about how much time you need to leave the covering on (approximately 2-24 hours). It is very important that you do not remove it before the recommended time or else you will be putting yourself in a situation that may be prone to infection because your broken skin will invite dirt and airborne bacteria.

• When removing the covering, wet or soak it with warm water. This is to make sure that your skin surface does not stick to the covering. It might be painful and might damage your skin further and the design

• Thoroughly wash your tattoo right after removing the covering, use an antibacterial soap and lukewarm water. Do not scrub your skin, gently use your hand not wash cloth, pat it dry.

• Avoid soaking the tattoo in water, for example swimming pools, bathtubs, sauna, and salt or fresh water. It can promote infection, leech or ruin the color of the tattoo. This activity is contraindicated for about two weeks.

• Avoid exposure to the sun. While your tattoo is still healing, keep it protected by covering it with your clothes or loose covering because heat can cause scabbing and scarring and may affect the result. After healing, continue to protect it with sunblock to keep the colors glowing for a long time since it can cause damage or fading of the tattoo.

• Do not pick at any scab or scratch it when it’s itchy. Apply our tattoo aftercare products. This is part of the normal process of healing, and it is important that you avoid any situation or activity that can probably damage it. The tattoo was made by poking a needle into the flesh. It broke through your skin layer and drew bloodstream with every poke. At this time in time, your brand-new tattoo is more associated with an open wound than a finished masterpiece of design.

While some tattoo artists may suggest that you can take off the covering after at least two hours, most will suggest keeping the covering on at least one day. That way you keep up to keep your wound clear of dirt and grime, lint, and air-borne bacteria.

• Keep it moisturized. Apply H2Ocean’s tattoo after products to prevent drying. Apply as often as necessary but make sure the amount is considerable. This is to maintain the color and quality of the tattoo.

Enjoy your tattoo fully by making sure that you follow these easy recommendations on how to take care of your tattoo. This way your tattoo will look great for a long time.
