How to Take Care of a New Tattoo? Seven Tips to Consider

The world of tattoos is an extremely complicated realm. What most individuals do not realise is that it is a vast space where health, art, body strength, shading, etching, and splendour are all on the same plane.

Tattoos can be considered a reminder for something profoundly connotative one wishes to treasure, act as a form of self-expression, or celebrate a life-changing event. To help tattoos last long, implementing the below-mentioned aftercare tips is necessary. Please check them out right now.

  1. Clean Hands Thoroughly Before Touching the Tattoo

Almost all artists provide their own set of advice but one thing they all instruct is to touch the tattoos only after cleaning hands thoroughly. Not doing so can provide access to varied harmful microorganisms and increase chances of allergic reactions. Using a mild cleanser, rub your palms for at least twenty seconds or more.

  1. Remove the Bandage Carefully and Wash with Antiseptic Soap Only

According to the highly competent professionals working for the Patong ink tattoo studio, you must remove the original bandage after three to four hours, and not cover the inked area anymore. The plasma should subside with the first couple of hours. To cleanse, use antiseptic soap and lukewarm water. Pat dry with a soft towel.

  1. Apply Ointment

Apply a thin coat of any over-the-counter lotion, but make sure it does not contain any sort of caustic chemicals. You can also moisturise your tattoos through some beneficial home-based tips and tricks.

  • White potato juice soothes irritation and pain.


  • Raw apple cider vinegar largely reduces soreness.


  • Rub plain yogurt and wash it after about ten minutes.


  • Finally, yet importantly, coconut oil speeds up the entire recovery process. Apart from preventing tattoos from drying out, this wondrous ingredient can rejuvenate traumatised skin cells quite quickly. Coconut oil has caprylic, lauric, and capric fatty acids that keep microbial infections at bay.


  1. Allow the Tattoo to Breathe

Do not go overboard with any product. If you apply excess lotion or cream, it would, unfortunately, clog pores and contribute to the formation of pimples. Let your tattoos breathe. On the first night, you can wrap the area with plastic so that it does not stick to your bed, but after that set it free and let it receive as much ventilation as possible.

  1. Avoid Sun Exposure

Ultraviolet (UV) radiation discolors tattoos, so avoid sun exposure for a prolonged period. If you do need to venture out during the daytime, please splash on some sunscreen and wear protective clothing. Artificial tanning is also prohibited.

  1. Never Go for a Swim

Submerging fresh tattoos in water can fade them quite quickly, and let harmful microbes enter your skin. So, do not swim for at least two weeks. You must also try staying away from hot tubs, Jacuzzis, spa parlours.

  1. Resist the Temptation to Pick Scabs

Picking scabs can unnecessarily slow down the healing process. If a tattooed area is itching, tap on it gently. You can also resist the temptation by distracting yourself. Watch movies, read books, knit, and listen to music to take your mind off.

Internal preparation is as significant as external aftercare. Individuals must remember tattooing is an invasive cosmetic technique, which strains the body to a great extent. The lymphatic and immune systems will try their best to heal a freshly etched design, so partying hard or indulging in anything extravagant is not recommended. In other words, take it easy. Also, seek medical assistance if you experience symptoms of infection like red rashes, inflammation, purulent drainage, fever, etc.
