The first thing you should know is that the tattoo is a wound and you have to consider it as such, if you don't you will have complications not only in the final result but also in possible infections. If you want to learn more about how tattoos are made, the tattoo styles that exist or how to tattoo, we encourage you to enter our school and see everything we can offer you.

It is important that you follow the steps that we are going to explain in this article, your skin has suffered from dehydration and you have to treat it as if it were a wound, you must always keep it as clean as possible and hydrated with the cream that your tattoo artist will recommend. /a, if you follow the steps strictly you will be able to enjoy a tattoo that will not lose its vivacity and you will save complications in its healing period.

  • Wash your hands with soap and water, your hands will be the ones that do all the work, so they must be very clean.
  • wash your tattoo with warm soapy water.
    • Use a neutral soap without alcohol or perfume. Better in gel than in tablet, you can use baby soap.
    • Rub your hands all over your tattoo to create a lather. Don't use sponges.
  • Rinse and dry.
    • Rinse your tattoo very well until there is no trace of soap left.
    • Dry it very well, use kitchen paper "keeping it on the skin so that it absorbs", do not drag it and do not use towels or anything that can leave residues because you would run the risk of infection.
  • Apply cream.
    • Use only the cream that your tattoo artist recommends. This cream is specific for complete healing.
    • Apply a small amount and spread it all over your tattoo in thin layers that cover it completely, even around it, since it will be red and it will give you a sensation of relief.
    • The first 3 days, apply the cream as many times as you consider necessary, from the fourth day until it heals, do it about 3 times a day, it is a matter of keeping the tattoo area hydrated, so excessive application would cause the opposite, that is, we will not get it to heal because it will always be moist so, only when you notice that it begins to dry, apply cream in the quantities and doses previously explained.
    • A well hydrated and clean tattoo should be healed in about 10 or 15 days, but it will not be fully healed for up to an average of a month, so do not forget to hydrate it with the cream and clean it daily, everything will depend on the healing capacity of your body. so be patient
  • Cover:
    • Only during the first 2 days and the first 3 nights, protect the tattoo with transparent film to protect it from rubbing during the night, when you go to sleep.
    • Never cover with gauze or paper, they can leave residues and that can only infect the tattoo.
    • Nunca te rasques o te quites las costras que pudieran salir, deja que se caigan por sí solas si no lo haces podrías perder partes del tatuaje.
