How do i take care a new tattoo?
Aftercare a new tattoo for some artists sometimes are different. We would recommend our customer to take the cover off in around an hour and wash it with clean water and let it dry. Do not put a cover again on the tattoo and let them breathe and gets dry naturally. But be careful for the first 2 nights as the blood mix with the inks might stain on your bed sheets. So better to put a towel underneath fresh tattoo before you go to bed. We encourage not to put any ointment, vazeline, or anything on the tattoo for the next 2 (two) days. On the third day when it started to dry, you can put a very thin layer of tattoo butter or normal vazeline to moisturize the tattoo so it’s not too dry and fasten up the healing process. Avoid to scratch the tattoo when it’s itchy or pick the scab if it’s scabby. If your tattoo feels itchy that is normal, you can reduce the urge to scratch by compress your tattoo with a bag of ice.
