Complete guide to tattoo aftercare

So you got a tattoo — congrats! Time to specialise in aftercare. If you would like your tattoo to age gracefully, subsequent few weeks are extra important to make sure it heals properly.

Here’s an entire guide to proper tattoo aftercare.

How to lookout of your tattoo: the fundamentals

Your tattoo artist will kick-start your aftercare routine as soon as their work is complete. After all, this is often their masterpiece, and that they want it to preserve its beauty. They’ll likely apply a skinny layer of petroleum-based ointment over your ink then cover it with wrapping or a bandage.

While you would possibly want to look at your new addition (or run your fingers over it), resist the urge. A tattoo is essentially an open wound, so keeping it covered (and your hands faraway from it) prevents bacteria from stepping into your skin.

Plus, counting on where the tattoo is on your body, keeping it covered will prevent your clothes from rubbing against it and causing discomfort and irritation.

The biggest mistake people make with new tattoos? Not using a proper tattoo aftercare.
