Tips for proper tattoo care


Fresh tattoos require special attention so that they heal quickly and not fade prematurely. There are a few things to consider when taking care of your tattoo. It is important to know what is important in the first days and weeks after the piercing.

Your dream 타투 is finally under your skin. So that you have something of your new tattoo as quickly and as long as possible, the work of art must now be carefully looked after. It is particularly important to take care of the tattoo immediately after tattooing. That is why the tattoo artist will first send you home with a disinfected, creamy and, above all, foil-wrapped tattoo. This film should be removed after three hours at the earliest – but after one day at the latest. The fresh tattoo can then be carefully rinsed off with lukewarm water. If you don’t want to do without cleaning lotion, you should use pH-neutral and skin-friendly soap. Then carefully dab the area with a lint-free towel.

To promote wound healing, Always wash your hands before cleaning and applying lotion to prevent bacteria from getting into the wound. And even if it itches: under no circumstances should you pound on the crust. This not only slows down the healing process, it can also remove color particles.


Care instructions for your everyday life

Depending on the size of your tattoo, it can take anywhere from three weeks to three months to heal. During this time you should stick to the care routine. After a few days, the skin’s own fine protective layer forms. Still, you should still take good care of your tattoo. This also includes avoiding direct sunlight at this point. Swimming pool and sauna visits are taboo, at least for the first 14 days, as chlorinated water and excessive sweating can impair wound healing. Clothing that is too tight can rub against the fresh tattoo. It is better to wear loose clothes and comfortable fabrics for the first few days. Wound and healing ointments from the pharmacy or special tattoo care products are suitable for creaming the new tattoo. If, despite all precautions, swelling, redness or other skin irritations occur, you should consult a doctor. Such symptoms could indicate an allergic reaction or inflammation of the wound.

UV protection: Even months after visiting the studio, it remains important to protect the tattoo from direct UV radiation. This has a negative effect on the color pigments under the skin. So always apply lotion before sunbathing – preferably with a sunscreen with a high sun protection factor.
