HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR FRESH TATTOO…
STEP 1 - CLEAN THE TATTOO
By this we mean clean the area of any excess plasma and blood. Use clean gloves when doing so. Remember that a fresh tattoo is an open wound, you definitely want to avoid any form of infection at all costs! Remember that bad healing is bad business.
STEP 2 - APPLY OINTMENT
Gently rub on ointment on the skin. Apply just the amount your skin can actually absorb. If it’s a white mountain, then you’ve overdone it. Your tattoo artist will likely have a recommendation on what local products are the best for this. We on our end have had some positive experiences with products that contain panthenol.
