Taking care of a new tattoo is crucial to ensure proper healing and minimize the risk of infection. The bigger your inked area, the longer it may take to heal. If you are getting a large tattoo done in several sessions, you may need to continue earlier steps until the last sections are complete. 

For fresh tattoos, here are some general guidelines to follow:

  1. Leave the bandage on: Your tattoo artist will cover your fresh tattoo with a bandage or wrap it in plastic wrap. Leave it on for the time recommended by your artist. This covering protects the tattoo from bacteria and allows the initial healing process to begin.
  2. Clean your hands: Before touching your new tattoo, thoroughly wash your hands with mild soap and warm water. This helps prevent any unwanted bacteria from coming into contact with the tattoo.
  3. Gently wash the tattoo: After removing the initial bandage, gently wash the tattooed area with mild antibacterial soap and lukewarm water. Use your hand or a clean, soft cloth to carefully cleanse the tattoo and remove any ointment, blood, or plasma. Avoid scrubbing or rubbing the tattoo vigorously.
  4. Pat dry with a clean towel: Gently pat the tattoo dry with a clean, soft towel or let it air dry. Avoid rubbing the area, as it can irritate the tattoo.
  5. Apply a thin layer of ointment, such as Hydrabalm: Once the tattoo is dry, apply a thin layer of a recommended tattoo ointment or aftercare product. Your tattoo artist may provide specific instructions on the type of ointment to use. Be sure to follow their advice.
  6. Avoid picking or scratching: Resisting the temptation to scratch or pick at your healing tattoo is crucial. Doing so can remove scabs prematurely and potentially damage the design or cause infection.
  7. Avoid excessive moisture and friction: Keep your tattoo clean and dry, and avoid prolonged exposure to water, such as long baths or swimming. Additionally, avoid tight or abrasive clothing that could rub against the tattooed area.
  8. Follow aftercare instructions: Your tattoo artist may provide you with specific aftercare instructions tailored to your tattoo. These instructions might include recommendations on how often to wash and moisturize the tattoo, what products to use, and how to protect it from the sun.
  9. Avoid direct sunlight and tanning beds: Protect your tattoo from the sun during the healing process and beyond. Sun exposure can fade the colors and damage the tattooed skin. If you're going out, cover your tattoo or apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF.
  10. Monitor for signs of infection: While rare, infections can occur. Keep an eye on your tattoo for any signs of infection, such as increased pain, excessive redness, swelling, or pus. If you suspect an infection, consult a healthcare professional promptly.

Remember, it's crucial to follow the specific aftercare instructions provided by your tattoo artist, as they may have their own preferred methods or products. Proper care of the tattooed area will help the healing process, protect the open wound, and support maintaining its quality over time.

Tattoo Care Updates

Ongoing Tattoo Care is important as it can take the deeper layers of your tattoo 3-4 months or more to heal completely, and this deeper connection brings the true colors and edgy sharpness to the surface. As your tattoo heals it becomes as bright and vivid as it has the potential to be. 

Once your tattoo has completely healed, keep up your daily habits and add to your routine the long-term needs of your tattoo.

  • Continue using HYDRABALM daily or as often as desired to keep skin hydrated and moisturized.
  • Use BUFF exfoliating wash as often as once a week to remove dead skin buildup.
  • Use VIVID Gel color enhancer to fight against fading colors and bleeding lines. As your tattoos age, fading inevitably occurs. To keep your tattoos vibrant longer, massage on a little Vivid Gel often. It’ll keep your skin moisturized, your lines sharp and make your colors pop. Vivid Gel restores, intensifies, and soothes skin.
  • Apply SHINE tattoo spray before you hit the door to show off your vibrant colors and details.
