And if all this has left your head, here are the general, simple and understandable rules of tattoo care.

Tips on how to care for a fresh tattoo

  • After the tattoo is completed, the tattooed place is covered with a protective film.

  • Leave the foil in place until the evening, ideally even during the first night.

  • After removing the film, wash the place with lukewarm water and antibacterial soap or special foam that you can buy in Hell, then dry with a clean towel and wait 10-15 minutes until repacking

  • Then lubricate with a thin layer of tattoo care cream. Available in Hell.

  • After another 10 minutes, wipe the place with a clean napkin to remove excess grease and allow the skin to breathe.

  • For the first week, take care of the tattoo 2 times a day, in the morning and in the evening. Later it is enough 1 time per day.

  • Freshly tattooed skin secretes tissue fluid. If it dries to the clothes, do not tear it off, but soak it in clean water. Otherwise, you can damage the tattoo.

  • After a couple of days, scales begin to form in the tattooed place as a result of healing. Do not remove them, you could tear off part of the tattoo with them.

  • for 2 weeks after the tattoo, do not bathe in the pool or outdoors. Take a shower instead of a bath.

  • for 2 weeks after tattooing, protect the tattooed area from dirt and irritation.

  • Do not expose the tattoo to the sun or solarium for at least a month.
