Are Tattoos Safe?

Tattoos are generally safe when performed by a licensed and experienced tattoo artist using sterile equipment. However, like any medical procedure, there is always a risk of complications or adverse reactions.

Tattoo infections can occur if the equipment used is contaminated or if proper aftercare is not followed. Additionally, some people may experience an allergic reaction to the tattoo ink, which can cause itching, redness, and swelling.

There is also a risk of scarring, particularly if the tattoo is not performed correctly or if proper aftercare is not followed. Scarring can cause the tattoo to look patchy, faded, or distorted.

It is important to do research and choose a reputable tattoo shop who uses proper techniques and sterile equipment. It is also crucial to follow aftercare instructions carefully to minimize the risk of complications and ensure the best possible outcome for the tattoo.

In conclusion, tattoos are generally safe when performed by a licensed and experienced tattoo artist using sterile equipment. However, like any medical procedure, there is always a risk of complications or adverse reactions. It is important to choose a reputable tattoo artist, follow aftercare instructions, and seek medical attention if you have any concerns or questions.

What Should I Wear?

When getting a tattoo, it’s important to wear comfortable clothing that allows easy access to the area being tattooed. Here are some tips to consider when choosing what to wear:

  1. Loose-fitting clothing: Avoid tight clothing that might rub against the fresh tattoo, as this can cause irritation and slow down the healing process. Opt for loose, comfortable clothing that allows the tattoo artist to easily access the area being tattooed.

  2. Easy to remove clothing: If you’re getting a tattoo on a covered area of your body, choose clothing that is easy to remove and put back on, such as a shirt with buttons or a simple dress.

  3. Clothing that exposes the area being tattooed: If the tattoo is on an area of the body that is typically covered, consider wearing clothing that exposes the area for the tattoo artist to access more easily.

  4. Consider the weather: If it’s hot outside, opt for lighter clothing to avoid sweating and discomfort during the session. If it’s cold, wear layers that can be easily removed as needed.

In conclusion, when getting a tattoo, it’s important to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that allows the tattoo artist to easily access the area being tattooed. Make sure to consider the weather and choose clothing that will keep you comfortable throughout the session.

Your tattoo will go through different stages of healing (e.g Scabbing, flaking, peeling) it is all normal, let it come off on its own; don’t panic or pick at it. 

Expect your tattoo to go through a phase called “The Uglies” where it will look old and faded–this is a normal part of the healing process. If you have any concerns or questions about your tattoo please don’t hesitate to call, our goal is for you to have a great healing tattoo. 

CARING FOR YOUR NEW PIERCING

It is imperative for new piercings to have proper aftercare during the healing process. Not doing so can delay the healing time by months or sometimes years, do not take it lightly. Below we have outlined the general things you should do as well as things you should not be when caring for your piercing.

  • Reduce piercing pain and swelling: Ice combined with IB Profin will help alleviate pain and swelling- IB Profin should be used as directed on bottle.
  • Before caring for your piercing: Always wash your hands before cleaning or handling your new piercing.
  • Clean piercing regularly: The piercing should be cleaned 2-4 times a day – We suggest using unscented antibacterial soap, Epson Salt dissolved in warm water, saline solution, or we have several aftercare products available for purchase. (Do NOT use – Neosporin, Vaseline, Alcohol, or Peroxide).
  • Check piercing jewelry daily: While cleaning your piercing, you should check that jewelry is secure as well as slightly rotate the piercing. (Only rotate when piercing area is wet, never dry)
  • Avoid overly touching the piercing: Never play with your piercing jewelry or touch it with unwashed hands – this can cause irritation or infection.
  • Avoid swimming while the piercing is healing: Pools, lakes and, oceans; typically 4-6 weeks
  • Changing your piercing jewelry: You should wait at least 2 weeks before your Jewelry is changed out, this should be done by a professional piercer the first time. We are available to change the jewelry for you.

Tattoo Pain Thresholds |

Getting a tattoo involves an ink-filled needle repeatedly puncturing your skin. Consequently, it’s not unusual to wonder how much pain you should expect when considering a tattoo.  

As it turns out, pain is a highly subjective experience, and how much discomfort you feel while getting tattooed can depend on a couple of factors including your biological sex, pain tolerance, and most importantly — the area of your body getting tattooed.  Most of the data on tattoos and pain is anecdotal, but some general rules apply. 

Generally Less Painful |
Generally getting a tattoo on fleshy areas like the outer thigh is less sensitive to pain.

Generally More Painful |
Tattooing the more “Bony” Parts of the body such as the ribs or hands tend to be more sensitive

There’s no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to how much pain you’ll feel when getting tattooed. But if you’re wondering what type of pain to expect, the experience is comparable to the feeling of a cat scratch or a sunburn. 

Day 1 |

You’ll come home from the tattoo studio with a bandage or plastic wrap over your tattoo. After a few hours, you can remove it.

You should ask your artist for specifics about how long to wait. Recommendations will vary and may be based on the type and size of your tattoo. Some tattoo artists suggest that you only keep your tattoo covered for 1 or 2 hours.

Once the covering comes off, you’ll probably notice fluid oozing from the tattoo. This is blood, plasma (the clear part of blood), and some extra ink. It’s normal. Your skin will also be red and sore from the tattoo. It might feel slightly warm to the touch.

With clean hands, wash the tattoo with warm water and a fragrance-free soap. Apply a fragrance-free and alcohol-free moisturizer. Leave the covering off so the tattoo can heal.

Days 2 to 3 |

By now, your tattoo will have a duller, cloudier appearance. This happens as your skin heals. Scabs will start to form.

Wash your tattoo once or twice a day, and apply a fragrance-free and alcohol-free moisturizer.

When you wash, you might notice some ink running into the sink. This is just excess ink that’s come up through your skin.

Days 4 to 6 |

The redness should start to fade.

You’ll probably notice some light scabbing over the tattoo. The scabs shouldn’t be as thick as the scabs you get when you cut yourself, but they’ll be raised. Don’t pick at the scabs — this can cause scarring.

Keep washing your tattoo once or twice a day. Apply a fragrance-free and alcohol-free moisturizer.

Days 6 to 14 |

The scabs have hardened and will begin to flake off.

Don’t pick at them or try to pull them off. Let them come off naturally. Otherwise, you could pull out the ink and leave scars.

At this point, your skin may feel very itchy. Gently rub on a fragrance-free and alcohol-free moisturizer several times a day to relieve the itch.

If your tattoo is still red and swollen at this point, you might have an infection. Go back to your tattoo artist or see a doctor.

Days 15 to 30 |

In this last stage of healing, most of the big flakes will be gone and the scabs should be going away. You might still see some dead skin, but it should eventually clear up too.

The tattooed area might still look dry and dull. Keep moisturizing until the skin looks hydrated again.

By the second or third week, the outer layers of skin should’ve healed. It may take 3 to 4 months for the lower layers to completely heal.

NEOSPORIN ON TATTOO

Is generally not recommended to use Neosporin or any over-the-counter antibiotic ointments on a new tattoo. Tattoos require a specific type of aftercare to promote proper healing and prevent infection. Using Neosporin or other topical antibiotics can interfere with the healing process and create a breeding ground for bacteria, which can lead to an infected tattoo.

Tattoo aftercare typically involves keeping the area clean and moisturized with a specialized aftercare product recommended by your tattoo artist. Applying a thin layer of petroleum jelly, such as A&D ointment, or a fragrance-free lotion can help keep the skin moisturized and prevent scabbing.

If you have concerns about your new tattoo or if you experience any redness, swelling, or discharge, it’s best to seek medical attention. Your doctor or tattoo artist can assess the condition of your tattoo and determine the appropriate course of action.

In conclusion, it is not recommended to use Neosporin or any over-the-counter antibiotic ointments on a new tattoo. The best approach to tattoo aftercare is to keep the area clean and moisturized with a specialized aftercare product recommended by your tattoo artist. If you have concerns, seek medical attention.

TATTOO ITCHING

If you’re itching to scratch at your tattoo, you’re certainly not alone.

A tattoo is most susceptible to itchiness when it’s fresh, but this can occur at any stage of the healing process. When you get a new tattoo, the skin is damaged with needles and ink, which can cause itchiness at some point.

Still, no matter what the cause, you should never scratch at your tattoo — especially if it’s new ink that’s still healing. This can lead to serious damage to the tattoo, as well as the surrounding skin.

Normal healing process

When you get a new tattoo, your skin is literally recovering from a wound. The skin is inflamed and working on preventing infection and repairing itself. As the skin tissues heal, it’s normal to experience some itchiness.

Cool compresses

Cool compresses can ease itchiness while also reducing swelling. Ask your doctor before using any compresses around recent tattoos. It can take about two weeks for new tattoos to heal, according to The Nemours Foundation.

Keep the area moisturized

If your skin is both itchy and dry, the solution may rest in moisturizing. For old tattoos, choose either an oatmeal-based lotion or a thicker moisturizer made from cocoa butter. Stay away from products with colors and fragrances, as these may cause further irritation and may inadvertently increase the itch.

 1. Feet
Tattoos located on the foot are always awesome to look at. However, they are likely to fade quicker because of the friction between the foot’s skin and socks or shoes. Tattoo maintenance for this area requires several touch-up sessions to keep the design clear.

2. Hands
Like the feet, hands are also bad spots for a tattoo. The thick skin in the palm makes it hard for the tattoo needle to penetrate deep into the skin. This area also moves a lot so the tattoo fades quickly without a frequent touch-up.

3. Inside Lip
Lip tattoos are likely to fade quicker since the mouth is always in contact with saliva, food, and drinks. If you want the lip tattoo to last longer, you might need frequent touch-up sessions at the tattoo shop.

Day 1 |

You can Shower 1- 24 hours after the tattoo has been completed. The exact time depends on the location and size of your new tattoo. 

Saniderm |

If  your Tattoo artist uses a medical-grade, waterproof bandage like Saniderm you can shower anytime.

Do Not Remove Saniderm |
Saniderm is a waterproof bandage that allows you to shower anytime after the tattoo is completed. Keep Saniderm on the tattoo for the length of time your tattoo artist told you to. 

Week 1-2 |

Gently wash the new tattoo with anti-microbial soap and water  2-3 times per day and be sure to pat dry. After cleaning the tattoo, gently apply a thin coat of anti-bacterial/Vaseline ointment 2-3 times a day. Do not put on another bandage. 

Week 3-4 |

Wash the Tattoo area 1-2 times per day. After cleaning the tattoo, gently apply a thin coat of lotion-based care product.

Week 4+ |
 Resume normal washing regiment. After cleaning the tattoo, apply an thin cost of location-based care product to extend tattoo life and appearance
