Then will apply a piece of cellophane or soft tissue. After all that is done the tattooist will explain you how to take care of your new tattoo or he will give you a sheet with detailed instructions.
In case none of this happens i will explain you in the rest of this article what you should do.
1. First of all, when you get home, don’t jump immediately in the shower. My advice is to keep it dry (but also clean). Be sure to wash your hands very well before touching the new tattoo. This way you won’t have any complications or infections.
2. Next, go to the first drug store you find and buy a tube of A&D Ointment. Apply it on the tattoo the first four too six days. After it gets dry remove the old application with a piece of soft cloth and then apply another one. Be very careful not to rub too hard the new tattoo. Do not use soap in the first few day, it’s not recommended.
3. After few days you can stop using the A&D Ointment. Try to use some kind unscented, unmedicated body lotion, as some scents may irritate the still-tender skin of your tattoo.
4. After you have applied the body lotion for around week you can stop doing that. A problem is that when the tattoo heals it will scab in some portions. When you will try to pick this cabs be very careful not to damage your tattoo design. So the best for you and your tattoo is to let it heal alone.
So after you get a new tattoo and follow these after care instructions you can be sure that you won’t have any problems. I use this methods my self and I can sincerely recommend it.
