A new tattoo can look very impressive, but when they get old and faded they are less attractive. Some tattoos can look pretty messy right from the beginning because they were not looked after properly. If you want people commenting on your body art for the right reasons then you will want to pay heed to the following tips.
A dressing will be applied to your tattoo with some antiseptic ointment under the dressing when you first get it. This dressing should not be removed for at least twelve hours. If you fail to follow this advice then you may permanently damage your tattoo.
A new tattoo can be very itchy. A scab will be forming on the skin and it is important not to scratch it because if it comes away it could take some of the ink with it. Some of us just automatically scratch whatever is causing us to itch so it is necessary to be vigilant of this until the tattoo is healed. The itch only lasts a few days, and your efforts to avoid scratching it will be rewarded.
Try not to get your new tattoo wet. If you have to get in the shower or bath make sure the tattoo is covered with something that is waterproof.
It is also damaging to a tattoo to be in direct sunlight so avoid this. A tattoo will stay vibrant for much longer if you take care with it when you are in the sun.
Keep your new tattoo moisturised as much as possible using a gel. You can buy a special ointment for this purpose but you should get enough of this from the tattoo artist to keep your tattoo moisturised for a few days.
