Proper Aftercare instructions for Arlington Texas
Now, you have your fresh new tattoo, and you want to take good care of it! From this point on, your Tattoo Artist is not responsible for any infection or problems you may have with your tattoo if you don't take proper care of it. It is very important that you follow these guidelines. A really beautiful tattoo can turn into a disaster if the proper aftercare is not taken.
Leave That Bandage Alone!
Your artist took the care to cover up your new tattoo for a very good reason - to keep air-born bacteria from invading your wound. Yes, as pretty as your new tattoo is, it is still a wound. Open flesh is a breeding ground for bacteria and infection. Leave the bandage on for a minimum of two hours, but no longer then ten hours. Excitement of having a new tattoo will make you want to remove the bandage so you can show your friends, but your friends will just have to wait until later. (hope you got a pic before the bandage was applied to show your friends.)
The only exception to this rule is if your artist covered your tattoo with saran wrap or some kind of plastic. This is extremely detrimental to a tattoo (and is not proper aftercare ethic), so it should be removed immediately. You're better off not having anything covering than to be suffocating your new tattoo with plastic wrap
!!NO!! baths, only untill tattoo is fully heald. When in shower save the tattoo for the last thing to be washed and wash it the same way you would out side of shower Making sure the *DIAL LIQUID ANTIBACTERIAL SOAP is with you in the shower and wash the tattoo just before exiting shower. (only reason I state this your body wash shampoo conditioner all have Fragrance and leaving this on your tattoo can cause infection). when out of shower dry the tattoo with a CLEAN PAPER TOWEL ON YOUR TOWEL (no baths till fully heald bath can cause the tattoo to soften causing the tattoo to fade). Do not use perfum or cologne on or around the Tattoo will cause infection.
If at any time during the healing proccess of the tattoo, might itch slap or pat the Tattoo do not itch or rub the tattoo for this will pull the ink out.
No swimming, NO tanning, NO salt water, NO chlorine water or NO lakes until 4 weeks or fully heald. avoid DERICT sunlight to the tattoo during healing process and after healing process is complete so tattoo does not fade if you chose to be in sun once heald apply the strongest form of sun block to keep from fading.
**Do not use Neosporin. This is a wonderful product for cuts and scrapes, but not for tattoos.**
