Lubricate, lubricate and lubricate, remember this! Don’t let your tattoo dry out, but don’t apply too much either! We recommend using a tattoo ointment that contains vitamins A&D.

- How often do you apply the tattoo?
While taking care of your tattoo, it is best to use an ointment that is not too thick. Then the tattoo cannot air. Especially the first days are important because it is actually still an open wound.
We, therefore, recommend using a medical tattoo ointment and applying it every 4 to 5 hours. After about 4 days you will see that you have taken care of your tattoo and you only have to apply it 2 times a day.
So, keep the tattoo moist and make sure it doesn’t dry out.
- Cleaning is also part of taking care of your tattoo
Your tattoo will of course remain an open wound and must be cared for properly. Before you apply the tattoo, you must therefore clean it. Use water and anti-bacterial hand soap such as Unicursal for this.
- Avoid dirty and tight clothes
You are also taking care of the tattoo and making sure that no dirt can get to it. Covering it all up all day isn’t good either, because it needs airing. That is why we do not recommend that you wear tight clothing.
Let the tattoo heal in peace and really use a medical tattoo ointment to speed up this process.
- Sleep with your new tattoo
Let’s assume that you sleep about 8 hours. Then apply your tattoo before going to bed! For healing, it is important that the skin does not suffocate. So try not to leave any clothing, thick ointment, or blankets over the tattoo. But let the tattoo rest and heal in freedom.
