6 rules for taking care of a new tattoo

Skin care begins the exact moment the tattoo is completed. It is also important to keep your skin protected and hydrated during the following weeks. Follow these simple rules:

  • It is advisable not to touch it for the entire time recommended by the tattoo artist. Typically during the first two\four hours;
  • Remove the bandage. Be delicate. If the bandage sticks to your skin, try wetting it with warm water so it comes off more easily;
  • Cleanse the skin. Gently cleanse the skin with your hand using a neutral soap. All this only after having washed your hands well first;
  • Dry it well. Gently pat your skin dry with a clean towel or disposable paper. This phase is very important because you run the risk of causing irritation;
  • Moisturize with tattoo balm. It is very important to protect your skin. All you need is to apply a small amount of product, just enough to cover the affected area evenly;
  • Cleanse regularly. Wash and moisturize your skin at least 3 times a day for 2 weeks.

Things to avoid with a fresh tattoo

  • Scratch the skin and remove the scabs (if you have itchy scarring on your face, washing the tattoo will provide relief);
  • Soak the tattoo in water;
  • Expose the tattoo to direct sunlight;
  • Use tight clothing;
  • Exercise or strain the area.

    Please note: if your skin continues to be swollen, red, a visit to a dermatologist is advisable.
