TIPS ON TATTOO CARE

Tattoos are a lifelong commitment and require some special care to keep them looking good for many years to come.

WHAT TO DO?
A person can take good care of their tattoo by:
Always using fragrance-free, hypoallergenic soap and moisturizer when caring for a tattoo, as harsh chemicals and fragrances can irritate and even damage freshly tattooed skin.
Using a moisturizer that allows the skin to breathe, as clogged pores can cause an infection.
Making sure the area is completely dry before applying aftercare moisturizer, as trapping excess moisture under the skin can lead to irritation and heat rash.
Washing the tattoo regularly but gently, especially after dirty or sweaty activities.
Drinking plenty of water to help keep the skin moist and supple.
While healing, covering the tattoo with clothing or a bandage whenever it might be exposed to the sun.

WHAT NOT TO DO ?
A person can also help the healing process by:
Avoiding soaps and moisturizers with any fragrances or harsh chemicals. Even if a product does not normally irritate the skin, it may irritate the tattooed area.
Not picking at scabs, as this can cause scar tissue to form.
Not scratching the tattoo even if it becomes itchy.
Avoiding non-cosmetic grade petroleum moisturizers, which will clog the pores.
Not using sunscreen on the tattoo until it has fully healed.
Not swimming and bathing until the tattoo has healed.
