Tattoo Aftercare from 4 Weeks to a Lifetime
After 4 to 6 weeks your tattoo should be fully healed. When there is no more flaking skin, no redness, no lumps or bumps you may consider your new tattoo to be fully healed. Now is the serious business of maintaining your new pride and joy so it keeps colours looking sharp and outlines well defined for life. This may sound like a boring tedious task, but consider the fact that you will be doing no more than you should for any other part of your body with exposed skin. It’s about looking good for as long as you possibly can.
For Your Tattoo's Health and Wellbeing There Are 4 Things You Need To Do:
1/. Keep clean: Wash daily with clean water and a fragrance free soap.
2/. Wear sensible clothing: Wear SPF clothing for sun protection and don’t wear coarse, scratchy clothes that can damage the fine definition of your tattoo.
3/. Watch your weight: An excess weight loss or gain can distort the appearance of a tattoo and loss of fine lines is inevitable.
4/. Stay well hydrated: Drinking plenty of water for your tattoo and your body’s wellbeing.
5/. Sun protection: The sun fades everything, including your tattoo over a lifetime. Wear high quality sunscreen after your tattoo has completely healed. Obviously stay out of the sun where possible to ensure your artwork stays rich in colour and clearly defined.
6/. Replace lost goodness: Every day use a nutrient rich, natural Tattman Aftercare product as you are reassured of optimum replenishment of lost essential vitamins, minerals and trace elements.
