The most important rules of tattoo care:
Always wash your hands thoroughly before touching your new tattoo.
Never use swabs, or similar products on a freshly made tattoo.
Remember to frequently but gently washing your tattoo and ensure that it is properly moisturized.
Do not scrub and do not soak the tattoo!
After about a week you’ll probably start to feel itchy - but remember, the skin in this area is undergoing regeneration - it must not be scratched! For the next 2 weeks - stop exercising and do not sunbathe in the solarium for the next month. Also try to avoid exposure to direct sunlight.
Some useful accessories:
Easy Tattoo cream - available at the studio (possibly ointment containing dexpanthenol),
Food foil - preferably breathable,
Soap with neutral Ph - best antiseptic (children's soaps or intimate hygiene wash),
Paper towel from which the dressing is made - prevents the leakage of plasma outside the dressing,
Dressing patch - will not allow the dressing to move,
