When a tattoo is first completed, the tattoo artist should cover it with a bandage. This bandage can be removed after about an hour. As soon as the bandage is removed, the tattoo area should be washed gently with antibacterial soap and rinsed with warm water.
For the next few days, most tattoo artists recommend coating the tattoo area with a fragrance-free and colorless ointment like A&D ointment. Fragrance can irritate the tattoo area or even cause a rash, so it’s important to avoid ointments and lotions that have fragrance. All that’s needed is a thin layer of ointment – many people make the mistake of applying too much ointment.
The most important precaution for tattoo aftercare is to make sure your tattoo is applied under sanitary and sterile conditions.
A clean environment will go a long way towards easy tattoo healing. Make sure the tattoo artist that you use follows sanitary procedures, and then do your part by keeping your tattoo clean while it’s healing. By following these simple rules of tattoo aftercare, you will soon have a beautiful finished piece of body art that you can enjoy for a lifetime.
