Tattoo Aftercare FAQ

How do I take care of my tattoo?

To take care of your tattoo, you should follow your tattoo artist's instructions. This may include keeping your tattoo clean and moisturized, avoiding direct sunlight and other sources of heat, and not picking or scratching at your tattoo.

How long should I keep my tattoo covered?

Typically, you should keep your tattoo covered with a bandage for a few hours after getting it. Your tattoo artist will likely provide you with a bandage to use. If not you can use our TIGER SPIT SECOND SKIN. Once the initial bandage is removed, you should continue to keep your tattoo clean and moisturized, but it's not necessary to keep it covered.

How often should I apply ointment to my tattoo?

You should apply a thin layer of ointment to your tattoo several times a day for the first few days after getting it.

Can I go swimming or soak in a bath with a new tattoo?

It's best to avoid swimming or soaking in a bath for the first few weeks after getting a tattoo. This is because the water can irritate your tattoo and make it more susceptible to infection. With out TIGER SPIT SECOND SKIN you can protect your tattoo while swimming as is completely waterproof.

When can I start using lotion on my tattoo?

After the first few days, you can start using a TIGER SPIT TATTOO BALM to keep your tattoo moisturized. Be sure to apply it sparingly, as using too much lotion can lead to irritation.

Is it normal for my tattoo to scab or peel?

It's normal for a tattoo to scab or peel as it heals. This is a natural part of the healing process and is nothing to be concerned about. Just be sure to keep your tattoo clean and moisturized, and avoid picking or scratching at any scabs or peeling skin.
Overall, the key to proper tattoo aftercare is to keep your tattoo clean and moisturized, and to avoid exposing it to any irritants or sources of infection. If you have any questions or concerns, be sure to consult with your tattoo artist for personalized advice.
