The next thing to do is applying the moisturizing cream and you can use it thinly. Usually, your tattoo artist will give his recommendation about the right moisturizer to use and then you can cover your new tattoo by using the clingfilm (clear plastic) or gauze. Sometimes the artist can also recommend you to let the tattoo open. You just need to follow his instruction for this. One more thing is that usually, a tattoo studio will give the advice to repeat the cleaning process for about three up to five times a day. 

  1. Ensure that Your Tattoo is Clean and Dry 

When you got a new tattoo, it is better for not soaking it at least for a month. However, it is still okay for you to take a bath, but don’t use your bathtub because it will soak your new tattoo. If your tattoo is easily touched by your clothes or pants, you can cover your tattoo with gauze or the clear plastic. It is to ensure that the design is not broken.

  1. Avoid the direct contact to the sun

It is also better for not letting your tattoo has direct contact with the sun. The healed tattoo, especially the colored ones, can fade if it is exposed by the sunlight. That is why; when your new tattoo is completely healed, don’t forget to apply the sunscreen at your tattoo area. You can ask the tattoo artist about the right sunscreen product that they recommend. 

  1. Just be patient because it is the key

We have to tell you that the aftercare process for a new tattoo is not easy at all. There are some factors that can affect the tattoo healing such as the size of the design and how good you are in taking care of that new tattoo. Small tattoo design usually has a simple design and it is also quite thin. That is why; it will be healed after just some weeks. However, for the more complex design will need for about some months until it is healed. Just follow any instructions given by your tattoo artists and make sure that the tattoo area is quite clean and moisturized within some months. In addition, it is also recommended to avoid any abrasive cream such as the body scrub. 

  1. Don’t scratch the tattoo

During the healing process, your tattoo will feel so itchy and it peels slowly. If it has happened to you, just don’t scratch it. Scratching the tattoo can erase the ink in that area and it will make your tattoo fades or disappears. If you feel itchy, it is better to just slowly pat it. That itchy feeling will be healed after one or two weeks. However, if that itchy feeling is not healed and your tattoo area is becoming red or swell, or maybe bloody for about a day after you made that tattoo, it is batter to consult to your tattoo artist or meet a doctor. It is better to check for your skin condition.

  1. Come back to the studio if you need a touch-up 

If your tattoo ink fades, you can come to the tattoo studio to do a free touch up. Usually, they give it for free because the bad service and result are not good for their reputation. You can come back to that studio 6 weeks after you got your tattoo.
