Tattoo Aftercare Advice

Tattoo aftercare plays an important role in the field of tattooing. Tattoo and tattooing are not just a passion or emotion of individual, but it turns into disaster if you ignore the importance of tattoo aftercare. It is as much important as choosing a right tattoo suitable for your personality. After tattooing as per your expectation the role of a tattoo artist has been finished, now it’s your turn to prevent your tattoo from external infection or any other skin problem.

It is very important to follow some guild lines which I have mention below, at least a week from tattooing.

Never Remove the First Bandage Instantly

It has been found that due to certain excitement of new tattoo, many people remove that bandage which tattoo artist put just after tattooing, I concern you that never do this common mistake. This bandage is for prevention from environment bacteria because a new-made tattoo is like unclosed flesh, and these bacteria attack fast on open wound. I recommend you to keep this bandage at least two hours.

If your tattoo cover-up by saran wrap or some kind of plastic by your tattoo artist, then it is possible for you to remove it after an hour.

Washing a Tattoo

After removal of bandage, you can wash tattoo to remove blood or ink spread around the tattoo, for this use mild warm water or any antibacterial liquid or antimicrobial soap. Do not use rough cloth to wash tattoo, instead of that you can use your fingers, but remind that it should be cleaned by any antibacterial soap.

Products and Lotions 

You can use some well-known products like Tattoo Goo or H2Ocean, but use a single product at one time as per directed until 3-5 days.




About Bathing, Showering, and Swimming after Tattooing
It’s completely OK that you can do bath with new tattoo and get your tattoo wet. Just do not use very hot water to wash tattoo area until 2-3 weeks. Yes, you can swim with new tattoo but keep in mind that only fresh water is allowed, do not swim in salty water at least two weeks.

Protection from the Sun after Tattooing

In the initial days after tattooing try to avoid direct contact with sun rays because ultraviolet rays affects the melanin of skin and results in fading of tattoo colors and cause skin infection as well.

In the past, these tattoos were made to express religious or spiritual beliefs, but nowadays it is the symbol of style. The main reason behind the popularity of tribal tattoo is its uniqueness. Patterns can be made as unique as you can imagine, and it is easy to make too.

These three tribes share almost the same expression on it. These tattoos represent social status, achievements, and family identification.

Flash Tattoo for Tattooing

The basic question arise is what is the flash tattoo? And the answer is the flash tattoo are prepared tattoo designs, which are use for rapid tattooing. It has been found that always most of the visitors of tattoo shop attract by tattoo flash, as they are typically displayed on the walls and in portfolios to give customers proper idea of the kind of work, they can receive.

Flash tattoos come with the wide range of designs. It is originally design by the tattoo artist, in particular, shop so that customers could pick a tattoo they wanted. Flash can be very useful when clients want to be tattooed quickly especially designs like stars and flowers.Flash tattoo sheet maintained with full color and shown to clients, when a client decides to use it for his or her tattoo, the artist can copy the linework to transfer paper, which is used to create a stencil on the body of the client before tattooing start.  

As a business point of view now artists started trading flash tattoo with each other and also selling it with different styles and designs across the world. As a result, many companies started hiring tattoo flash designers, who are able to produce huge volume of flash for commercial sale.

I have collected few of flash tattoo designs for my blog, and all these designs by tattoo artist are preserved under copyright law.
