Why Tattoo Aftercare Is Important
Getting a tattoo done right by a professional, talented and hygienic tattoo artist is only half the success, the rest is up to you. Not following one or two of the listed instructions can damage or spoil a beautiful work of art.
There is no "right" way to heal a tattoo as defined by the industry, but there are some things that everyone can agree on. From my years of experience around the world and working with several other tattoo artists, I have found that following this procedure results in beautiful and healthy tattoos by using the best tattoo healing moisturizer.

This is one of the most important steps in caring for your tattoo. After you remove the bandage, you should wash the tattoo thoroughly with warm water, mild soap, and a clean towel. The area is tender, but important for removing blood, ink, and dried fluid.
Remember – use the towel only once! For the first 36-48 hours after your tattoo, all you have to do is wash it very gently with mild soap, warm water, and your fingertips without a towel, morning and evening.
Also, to protect against damage, nobody fluids or other potentially infectious things should come into contact with healing tattoos. You don't need to apply cream or lotion at this point.
If possible, wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and keep your tattoo out of direct sunlight for the first 30 days. It's completely normal for your new tattoo to ooze and wring out the ink and leave marks on the sheets and clothes, be careful.
