Believe it or not there are some people out there that love giving advice about subjects they know nothing about. We call these people know it alls. So don’t let a know it all tell you the wrong advice when it comes to your tattoo. A vast majority of people are simply unaware that you actually have to take care for your tattoo and that there are several things you should not do and several things you should stay away from.
First and foremost you should ask your tattoo artist for a clear after care instructions after you have gotten your tattoo. Secondly, you must be gentle and careful with your new tattoo. Do not scrub it with a wash cloth and do not submerge it in water. Absolutely do not go out in the sun and do not go swimming.
Another misconception about tattoos is that you should keep them bandaged up. This is not true at all. After the first hour has past after you have gotten your tattoo you should remove the bandage and don’t re-bandage. The only time you should bandaged it back up is if you can not avoid being out in the direct sun. But once you are out of the sun the bandage should come off.
The important thing to remember is to keep your tattoo clean and if it is possible keep your clothes from rubbing up against it until it heals up completely. And absolutely do not scratch your tattoo no matter how bad it may itch.
