How to care for it after a tattoo? A guide to proper tattoo care see here

Many people think that a tattoo is nothing to worry about, but in fact, a good tattoo is only the first step, the maintenance of the later tattoo recovery process is also crucial, directly affecting the final effect of the tattoo. The following is a list of things to note during the tattoo recovery process, and I hope it will be helpful to those who are not familiar with tattoo maintenance. This article will go into a little more detail about post-tattoo care considerations. Anyone who has had a tattoo should be able to relate to that searing, hot, tingling sensation. When you get a new tattoo, you need a protective film to protect it from bacteria and dust.

In addition, after the tattoo is over, the tattoo area is like a wound, there will be tissue fluid oozing out, the cling film also plays a second role here, which is to avoid the contact between the tattoo and the clothes, reducing the risk of friction and soiling of the clothes, the general coverage time of the protective film is about 2-3 hours. After about 2-3 hours, remove the protective film and rinse the tattoo area with water, not soap or body wash. And then let it dry naturally, remember not to use a towel, too much bacteria. If the bandage of the protective film is not good to tear, do not tear it hard, it may damage the tattoo, the correct way to use flowing warm water rinse off slowly after uncovering. The standard of cleaning is to rinse off all the oozing tissue fluid and rinse it out, no cleaning products are needed, by this time the wound is already closed, the surface has formed a tight layer of scabs, you can rinse, but the rinse time should not be too long!

After the tattoo, you should apply the care ointment three times a day and the first three days, and before each application you should rinse off the previous ointment before changing it. Just apply it, no extra trip to the drugstore to consult a repair ointment or something, the skin comes with its own repair function and after three days the skin starts to scab and you can stop using the ointment. During scabbing, the tattoo area can be itchy, don't scratch the scab piece! This is very important, as the healing of the skin goes through an itchy and painful process, and if you can't resist scratching, it will not only cause secondary damage to the skin but also affect the aesthetic effect of the tattoo.

During the recovery process, from the beginning of the scab to the gradual removal of the scab, remember to try not to touch the tattoo, not to expose yourself to the sun, not to drink alcohol, not to eat stimulating food, not to eat spicy seafood, not to eat hair, such as crabs, lobster, etc. Don't work out either, and stop tattooing for a while if you're usually in the gym. Many people ask why you can't exercise, because exercise accelerates blood circulation will affect the healing of the skin, and the sweat that comes out after exercise is prone to spot bacteria that cause tattoo inflammation, so don't exercise a lot during tattoo recovery! For those who are prone to sweating when it's slightly hot in the summer, cut back on going outside before scabbing and try to keep the tattoo site dry. Even if you're in good health and not inflamed, it's possible for color fainting to occur due to poor care, so for the sake of a beautiful tattoo, hold back! During this period, due care should also be taken in dressing, try to wear loose cotton clothing and do not let the tattoo get squeezed and rubbed.

There are also a lot of concerns about whether or not you can take a shower after getting a tattoo, it's possible to take a shower, but only for a short, quick rinse, no soaking, no hot springs, no swimming, no prolonged soaking in water. The recovery period for tattoos is about 15-20 days, and it is normal for some areas to take up to a month to maintain because they are inconvenient, such as elbows, ankles, and knees, all of which are slow to recover. All that needs to be noted is that during the fingerprint maintenance period, once the tattoo is restored, you can return to your normal diet and exercise.

Armed with the above proper care treatments, you will have a perfect tattoo!
