What some people don’t realize is that aftercare for tattoos is just as important as all the steps you need to take before getting your tattoo. But some times people don’t think about the aftermath of getting a tattoo. They just think it will be cool to have one. But if you don’t take the proper aftercare for tattoos in the healing process it could get infected or get ruined. After all the pain, time, and money that you spent on your tattoo it would be a shame if something were to happen after you got your tattoo.
Here are the steps for the aftercare for tattoos:
Once your tattoo is done the tattoo artist will clean it off and wrap a bandage around the tattoo. You will need to keep this bandage on for about 2 hours then you can take it off. After you take off the bandage you will need to wash off the tattoo with warm water and soap. DO NOT use a wash clothe or anything like that. Only use your hand and finger tips to clean it off as good as you can. Your tattoo will have dried up blood and ink. Try to get as much off as you can. Your tattooed area will be soar so just take it easy. You will not need to cover the tattoo again. Tattoos need to get air in order to heal.
You will need to keep your tattoo clean from any bacteria so you will need to wash it several times a day. Once you wash it apply a thin layer of ointment, I use A D Ointment, so that your tattoo won’t dry out. If you let your tattoo dry out it could be painful and permanently ruin your tattoo so keep that from happening.
Your tattoo will itch for a couple weeks after you get it. DO NOT scratch it because it will peel off the scab and you want it to come off on its own.
Aftercare for tattoos doesn’t need to be a big deal if you don’t make it one. If your dream tattoo is worth getting then it is worth taking care of so you will have a great looking tattoo that will last a lifetime. Trust me when I say that tattoos are well worth the time and money that you put into them. Aftercare for tattoos can be a pain in the butt but it you can make it through the first couple weeks you won’t be disappointed.
