How do you treat new tattoos?

Tattooing a motif on the skin means leaving many small wounds on it. This is because a thin needle dipped in pigment penetrates the second layer of skin, the dermis, 10,000 times per minute during tattooing. This depth is necessary so that the colour pigments will not gradually disappear due to natural renewal processes taking place on the upper skin layer, but instead remain visible for a long time.

Firstly, so that the resulting stitches can heal well without causing inflammation or scarring, the tattoo artist needs to take a professional approach. If, for example, they are too deep, the determinations are made randomly. The loss of tattoo colour is called bleeding. However, it is also necessary to take care of the wound and the skin after tattooing. In other words, looking after your new tattoo will speed up the healing process and help ensure that even the best lines stay sharp years later.

Care instructions: How do I take care of my tattoo afterwards?

It is very important to take care of a new tattoo immediately after it has been done. In order to prevent microbial contamination, the tattoo artist sterilizes the skin area and covers it with a transparent film. After 6-8 hours, the shield must be removed to ensure air access to the affected skin area. You must then take care of your skin: Cleansing and moisturizing should be done at least twice a day. This will make crust formation more difficult and reduce the risk of scarring. To this end, wash the wound with warm water and pH-neutral soap. Wipe the affected area as gently as possible with a soft cloth. Then apply a thin layer of Tattoo After Care Ointment.
