How should I take care of a new tattoo?


Answer by  SillyZilly (64)

Wash tattoo with a gentle anti-bacterial hand soap twice daily. Keep moist by applying a fragrance and dye-free lotion throughout the day. I recommend Lubriderm Daily Moisture Lotion.

Follow the directions of the person you trusted to do your tat, they will normally supply you with an ointment to put on for the first 24 to 48 hours.

For the first few days, use lotion on the tattoo. Did you know the best thing to use is vasoline? It will help the tattoo heal. Keep the area lightly covered with clothes. The sun can fade a new tattoo. However, be careful and don't let your skin rub against your clothing.

Keep you new tattoo moist by putting fragrance free lotion on it to lock in the color. DO NOT pick at it as it scabs because you will mess up the color.
