Once again, welcome back to our Analysis of Aftercare series! In today’s final part, we’ll look at the DOs of tattoo aftercare for small/medium, and large and highly detailed tattoo pieces. Let’s jump right back in!
Your tattoo artist is the first person you should contact regarding inquiries or issues with the tattoo. They will provide you with all the necessary information that you need for the aftercare process.
Direct contact with tight materials may aggravate the tattooed area and cause more irritation. Make sure to be gentle with your skin and avoid scratching the area.
The more you drink, the more your healing skin will thank you. By staying hydrated, your skin will heal quicker, and you’ll be able to flex that new tattoo sooner than you think.
IMPORTANT NOTE – Tattoo Exposure
For all types of tattoos, if the bandage rolls up and the tattoo is exposed, your risk of infection increases as well as the chance of loss of ink. In any case of the bandage coming off or losing grip, DO contact your tattoo or the studio immediately.
We’ll begin with the DOs for handling small/medium tattoos.
Next, we’ll transition to the DOs for large and highly detailed pieces. While many steps are similar to handling small/medium tattoos, there are a few notable differences.
That wraps up all our DOs for tattoo handling and our series on tattoo aftercare procedures! We hope you found these blogs helpful and informative. Following these steps will not only make your healing process go as smoothly as possible but will ensure that your ink looks just as fresh as the day you got it.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, contact your tattoo artist or call our studio for any assistance. Your health and safety are our top priority, and we are always happy to help!
