Tips and care after tattooing

Remember to always spread it with clean hands and to use only a thin layer, in order to keep the skin hydrated but not greasy. Around the fourth day, if you have carefully followed all these instructions, the first cuticles will begin to appear, similar to those of a sunburn: in order not to ruin the color, do not remove them absolutely, they will come off by themselves when the time is right 타투.

If you should feel a little itchy, know that it is normal because new skin is forming: to relieve it, just try to keep the area well hydrated with the cream and, if it is really an unbearable sensation, do not scratch yourself but tap with your fingers. fingers gently.

What you must never do (and then never, and again never)

You must always consider your tattoo as a wound (because in fact it is) even if it is small in size: for this reason, hygiene is essential during healing to avoid the onset of infections.

Keep the tattoo away from dusty environments, from contact with animal hair and, in the first two weeks, never expose it directly to the sun. Tanning lamps are also banned, so if you are a fan of sunbathing, perhaps it is better to postpone your appointment.

Also postpone saunas and baths in the sea and in the pool for a few weeks, because salt and chlorine can irritate the skin, discolor and fade the tattoo, not to mention that in water you can easily come into contact with bacteria and other microorganisms.


When can the tattoo be considered completely healed?

A new tattoo generally heals within about ten days, but the skin is completely regenerated in about a month: it is a subjective process that varies from person to person.

What to do to keep the colors bright for a long time?

Once your new tattoo (and old ones too) is perfectly healed, they must be protected from two sworn enemies: skin that is not adequately hydrated and the sun . To solve the first problem, just use a moisturizer regularly when you are no longer wearing aftercare cream.

On the other hand, as regards the sun’s rays, which in addition to making the epidermis age prematurely can strongly damage the colors, it is always better to apply adequate photoprotection on the drawing ( and on the whole body, if the skin is very clear ), or creams with spf 30 or 50+.
