How to take care of your tattoo
We explain how to take care of your newly made tattoo so that it heals as quickly as possible and conserves the colors better for longer.
The aftercare of the tattoo begins right after the tattoo has been made, we recommend covering the tattooed area with a surgical-type patch / dressing to help a better and faster healing.
The protective cover should remain for at least 3-4 days after the process. The length of time will depend on the size and location of the tattoo. The tattoo may appear to be oozing ink or a thick, sticky substance. This reaction is usually not a cause for concern, as it is just the fluid and ink carryover from the tattoo. When detaching, do it gently and slowly so as not to hurt the area.
This cover protects open skin from bacteria, sunlight, and rubbing against clothing. In this way we avoid infections, we must understand that the tattoo is also an open wound on the skin and we must take care of it as such.
The first wash
After washing your hands well, you can gently wash your tattoo with soap neutral and warm water with your fingers. It is very important that the soap you use is NEUTRAL.
After washing, you should dry lightly with a towel and then let it air dry for a few minutes. When the area is completely dry, you can apply a thin layer of moisturizer to the tattoo, but leave it uncovered to allow the skin to breathe.
Your tattoo finishes healing in approximately 15-20 days, in that time do not forget keep it hydrated with the special tattoo balm, a small amount, when it feels dry.
