Congratulations on your beautiful new cosmetic tattoo! To ensure that your tattoo looks its best and lasts as long as possible, it’s important to follow some simple aftercare tips. 

  • Keep it clean: In the first few days after getting your cosmetic tattoo, it’s important to keep the area clean and avoid touching it with dirty hands. Use a mild soap and water to gently clean the area twice a day.
  • Protect it from the sun: Sun exposure can cause fading and damage to your tattoo, so make sure to protect it with a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least 30 SPF. Apply sunscreen every time you go outside, and reapply every few hours.
  • Avoid water: Avoid soaking the area in water for the first few weeks after getting your tattoo, as this can increase the risk of infection. This includes swimming, bathing, and hot tubs. If the area gets wet, pat it dry with a clean towel.
  • Don’t pick at it: Picking or scratching at your cosmetic tattoo can cause scarring and infection, so it’s important to resist the urge to scratch or pick at it. Let it heal on its own.
  • Use recommended aftercare products: Your tattoo artist may recommend specific aftercare products, such as ointments or creams, to help promote healing and protect your tattoo. Follow their instructions carefully.
  • Follow up with your tattoo artist: It’s important to follow up with your tattoo artist after the initial healing period to ensure that the tattoo has healed properly and to address any issues that may have arisen.

These simple tips will help you keep your new cosmetic tattoo looking its best and ensure that you can enjoy the results for years to come. If you have any questions or concerns about aftercare, please feel free to contact us.
