Rules of care in the first days
After the session you need to be as responsible as possible, because now the quality of tattoos depends on you. Do not remove the film earlier than necessary, and follow all the recommendations:
buy Bepanten and apply four times a day for a week;
You can remove the film on the fifth or sixth day after the session, but you need to do it carefully so as not to injure the skin;
do not take a bath, only a shower;
do not play sports for the first four days;
you can not steam tattoos, go to the sauna;
do not scratch the tattoo site;
lubricate with greasy cream without additives or shea butter;
do not overwhelm fresh work with clothes, do not wear things that sit tight;
remove watches and other jewelry if they rub the film;
do not drink alcohol one day, as well as any energy and coffee.
Proper tattoo healing
There are different seasons for tattooing, the best time to go to the master – winter, the most difficult – summer, or rather August. After all, the bright sun is not the best friend for black pigment, try to cover the picture from the sun for at least two weeks with loose clothing. Buy sunscreen and get a tattoo, not only after the session, but always when you are on vacation and in direct sunlight. Do not go to sea immediately, salt water can cause irritation, so the holiday will be uncomfortable.
Tattoos are best treated by healthy people who drink moderate amounts of water, do light stretching, exercise, do not drink a lot, moisturize the skin. Of course, no one is perfect, including tattoo artists. I don’t do all that either, but you can take note of one or more habits. They will not only improve the condition of the tattoo, but also the body as a whole.
After two months, the tattoo will heal completely, now it is part of your body, essentially your skin. Therefore, good home care will maintain her condition for many years
Do I need a tattoo correction and who needs it?
Nowadays, the industry is very developed, needles, pigments and machines are high quality. In the past, it was necessary to make adjustments, but now only in some cases. You can always come and correct the picture, but it is recommended to do it every five years.
Correction some time after the first session is required in some areas. The best work is done on the arm, thigh, the worst – on the toes and feet.
Remember that the tattoo is in the dermis and is covered by the epidermis, so it can not be perfectly black. Depending on your features, the tattoo will be either more saturated (for thin skin) or gray (for dry skin).
