How to Care for a New Tattoo

Taking care of your new tattoo will prevent it from fading or getting infected. By following a few simple rules and getting in the habit of cleaning your tattoo, you can keep your tattoo clean and vibrant.

Listen to your tattoo artist. If you’ve done your homework and chosen a good tattoo artist, he or she will provide detailed instructions on how to care for your new tattoo, which you should follow carefully. Every tattoo artist will have a slightly different opinion on the best way to care for a new tattoo, but don’t worry, most reputable artists have had years of experience in caring for new tattoos, so their methods have been tried and tested.[1]
Think of your tattoo as having a warranty; if you don’t follow the artist’s instructions, you might void the warranty, and he or she won’t give you free touch-ups.
Remember: tattoo artists want your tattoo to heal correctly and look good just as much as you do, so they shouldn’t give you any poor advice.
The following instructions may vary slightly from what your tattoo artist tell you, but should serve as a good guideline.
