Tattooing is more than applying a piece of art on your body; it is also a medical procedure as tattoos are applied underneath the skin with special needles. For this very reason, it is very important how to take care of your ink after getting it done. 

Once your tattoo session is over, the area is covered with a special bandage to protect the tattoo from rubbing onto your clothes and getting irritated. You should keep the dressing on for as long as recommended, which may differ between 24-72 hours.

Once the covering is removed, the area should be washed gently with soap and water, and the skin must be dried with a clean and soft cloth. You are now ready to apply your aftercare ointment.

The ointment must be applied 4-5 times a day in the first week, and 2-3 times a day in the second week as in tiny amounts each time (just enough to moisturize the area). Remember that over-use of the cream is harmful for your tattoo and may cause damage on your skin.

During the first 2-3 weeks, your skin does a lot of things to heal your tattoo like forming itchy flakes and scabs. Do not pick, itch, or peel them. If the urge to itch is unbearable, you may apply cold compress to the area (you may use an ice cube). 

Keep your tattoo clean, and avoid direct sunlight and swimming during the first two weeks of the healing process.
