To those who really value it: Tattoos are more than just body images or paintings. They hold together some memories that may be tough to lose cognizance of – or better yet some lovely imageries of something or someone you hold dear to heart. Owing to this, messing it up is not one ‘luxury’ you will ever want to think of. It is in this regard that we have chosen to talk about the best way of looking after your tattoo.
4 Best Ways to take care of your tattoo
Furtherance to the discussion, I shall now talk about 4 of the most effective ways to take care of your tattoo. So, the tattoo is finally ready; right at the spot you wanted it. All there is now is to show off what you’ve got. Why don’t you hold on a minute and read this:
- Keep your tattoo out of water. This should not be waved aside for any reason especially if your tattoo is yet to fully heal. Doing so does not only put you in the danger of losing the tattoo but could also endanger your health since pathogens may be present in the water. So, there should be no dipping.
- Use mild skin products. As the sunlight could be harsh on your skin [and tattoo] so could abrasive cosmetics do your tattoo a lot of harm – so, you should avoid both as much as you can. Always use mild skin products – probably natural organic products. It is worth stating here that with their wide range of cosmetics, Primitive Outpost makes aftercare simple for tattoo bearers. It is also important to always apply cream with a good sun protection factor on the tattoo in order to prevent fading.
- Let it ‘breathe’. You should see to it that your tattoo feels some fresh air. This means that you should avoid wearing fitted or tight clothes especially over the tattoos.
Go for retouch when necessary. There are times that no matter how obedient [to the tattoo artist’s instructions] you might have been, the ink still gets to peel off –or you simply lose some ink. On such occasions, you should not hesitate to go back for retouch to get your tattoo back whole again.
