You probably still remember the thrill of admiring a freshly created tattoo on your skin, and you probably have at least some of the tips that your tattoo artist gave you in your mind. Usually, we still give our tattoos enough care and attention in the beginning, but eventually we put it on the back burner a bit. But if you want your tattoo to be preserved and beautiful 5, 10, 20 years from now, regular care of your skin and tattoo is a must. Here’s why. And we hope and wish you’ll take our advice… Do you know why? Because we are 100% sure that in a few years you will be grateful! 🙂
- Proper tattoo care avoids infections
It’s not just a new tattoo that needs to be taken care of to avoid infection. Of course, the care of a new tattoo is crucial and we urge you to choose a good quality ointment such as Tattoo Care and follow the advice of your tattoo artist. However, the fact is that if you don’t follow some basic care guidelines, problems can occur later. As tattoos can be an ideal entry point for bacteria and other microbes, it is very important to keep your tattoo clean and dry and to protect your skin from cracking and wounds by regularly applying tattoo ointment.
- You can easily prevent your tattoo from fading
It is good to know that all tattoos are extremely sensitive if exposed to the sun or other sources of ultraviolet (UV) light, as the colors can fade in a short time. You may have noticed this phenomenon in others, but you don’t have to join them. It’s important to cover your tattoo with clothing when sunlight is strong, and it’s also a good idea to apply sunscreen specially formulated to protect the tattooed skin. Try Tattoo care Sun protection and see for yourself.
- Reduces swelling and inflammation
Discomfort usually starts when you get a new tattoo and can last for 4 to 6 weeks. Swelling and inflammation are common side effects of getting a tattoo and can be reduced by using cold compresses for a few days to help reduce swelling. It is also extremely important to moisturize your tattoo regularly with a suitable ointment and keep it clean.
- Avoid cracking your skin
We cannot stress enough how important it is to moisturize your tattoo regularly. This will help to prevent your skin from drying out and cracking, which can cause damage to your tattoo and, of course, pain. We recommend using a good quality ointment such as Tattoo Care, which is hypoallergenic, penetrates deeper layers of the skin and doesn’t clog pores.
- Prevent scarring
If your tattoo does not heal properly, scars can appear. From this point of view, it is really important to take the time to look after your tattoo in a holistic way to reduce the risk of scarring. Also, problems can arise later due to infections or dry skin damage, which can easily be prevented by following the steps mentioned in the previous points.
Interested in why it’s better to choose an ointment?
The difference between an ointment and a cream is mainly in the structure and the proportion of ingredients in them. Ointments contain more oils, whereas creams usually contain more water, so they are less greasy, but they also wash off more easily and mostly protect only the outer layer of the skin. What’s special about ointments is that, as well as protecting the outer part of the skin, they penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin where your tattoo is located. It therefore nourishes your skin more effectively from the inside, while creating a protective layer on the outer layer of your skin to keep it moisturized for longer.
