You've been Tattooed. You've sat through it, now it's time to take care of it. From now on it is your responsibility to look after it, your Tattooist cannot follow you around to make sure you're looking after your new tattoo, so follow these instructions and every thing will be O.K.
(1) Remove the cover after TWO hour.
When a tattoo is just done it seeps, caused by the puncturing of the skin during the tattoo procedure. The covering on the new tattoo is to catch the excess white blood cells and ink that leaks from your skin, as well as protecting your new tattoo from dirt, oil, dust, etc.. in the initial healing stage.
Do not re-cover tattoo. Your Tattoo will require oxygen to heal, re-covering your tattoo will deprive it of this, and increase the risk of damaging the scab.
(2) Wash with lukewarm soapy water and pat dry with a clean towel.
When you first remove you covering from your tattoo, there will be a build up of excess ink and dried white blood cells. Gently wash this away, don't use a wash cloth or anything abrasive ,and gently pat dry. Don't rub, as this will only aggravate your skin. Also it is important to only use a clean towel.
(3) Apply SAVLON twice a day or You can use our after-care spray.
This is the part of your Tattoo care, that you will be offered the most advice on, mostly by people who have never been tattooed. Please disregard any advice, except that of your Tattooist. This includes NURSES and other So called Tattoo EXPERTS. DO NOT use Vaseline: This forms a barrier to the air and prolongs healing.
Preparation-H: yeast cells can cause infections.
Neosorin: Destroys the Ink, and causes irritation.
*NB* When using any medical products always read the label.
(4) A scab will form after a day or two, allow it to fall off its self , this will take 10 -14 days.
The scab forming over your tattoo, is your bodies natural healing process. It is a thin layer of white blood cells and ink mixed, coating and protecting the damaged skin underneath. This allows the Epidermis ( top layer of skin) to heal over the ink. It is very important to let the scab fall off in its own time. If damage is done to the scab, it will promote bleeding, which will draw ink from the Tattoo, causing patches of ink to disappear from it. This is the most common way to ruin new tattoos, and annoy a Tattooist.
(5) Keep it CLEAN! Keep away from Oil, Dust, Dirt, Etc.
This part is fairly self-explanatory. If you work in a dirty environment, take care. But VERY IMPORTANT. do not re-cover with a bandage, (SEE RULE (1), loose clean clothes are sufficient, to protect your tattoo.
(6) Don't soak your new tattoo.
Soaking a new tattoo will cause a tattoo lose its brightness. By submersing in water, soaking or exposing your unhealed tattoo to a sauna, you will cause it take on water. The water will seep into your tattoo, though the scab, then when it dries (i.e. evaporates) it will take some of the ink with it. Also Soaking it will prolong it's healing time. (as before there is more to it than this, but these are the basics).
(7) The Sun is your tattoos worst enemy.
All pigment (colour) is affected by light. That is how it works, light reflex of a coloured object, and by absorbing and reflecting different parts of white light we perceive colour.Tattoos are no different. Sun light or Intense light will take a toll on your tattoo.This will not happen over the space of a day, but if you do not look after your Tattoo, it will fade.
DO NOT expose your new tattoo to Strong Sun light or Sun beds for at least Three weeks. To counter act the effects of sun damage is simple. Whenever you intend to expose your tattoo to intense light e.g. holidays or sun beds, use a TOTAL SUN BLOCK on the tattooed area( only when completely healed ), that way you'll get a nice tan, and your tattoo will stay nice and bright.
Think of your Tattoo as an investment - look after them.
