Body Tattoo Aftercare: Tips and Advice From Ohio's Top Custom Tattoo Studio

Effectively caring for your new ink work is extremely important to proper healing.

Even though tattoos are considered a "minor abrasion," your new flesh art is still an open wound. 


After your body tattoo session is complete, the first three days following your session are most important regarding tattoo aftercare. Regardless of where on your body you selected for new or updated ink or what style of artistic expression on your flesh canvas you prefer, good after is crucial to proper body tattoo healing.


BODY TATTOO AFTER CARE FUNDAMENTALS

  1. Wash with anti-bacterial hand soap.

  2. Stay out of the sun.

  3. No pool or hot tub for 2 weeks


BEST TATTOO AFTER-CARE ADVICE

Tattoos take 2-4 weeks to heal, depending on the skin type, artist's skill level, and work performed.

-Always wash your hands before handling your new tattoo work.

-Do not submerge or suffocate your tattoo with thick cream; your flesh canvas needs to breathe to properly heal.

-The top product not to use on your new ink is petroleum.

  • Petroleum products clog pours; don’t allow the skin to do its own healing; stick to clothes; and create more scabbing.

-A lot of artists use plastic wrap to cover larger tattoos at the end of a session.

  • Remove the plastic wrap after 1 hour.

  • Removing the plastic wrap will allow your skin to breathe and promote proper body tattoo healing.

  • Once the plastic wrap is removed, clean the treated area with anti-bacterial hand soap and apply ointment.

  1. Always wash your hands before handling your tattoo.

  2. Wash with anti-bacterial hand soap three times daily.

  3. Pat dry with a clean paper towel (Viva brand is recommended).

  4. Follow up with a thin layer of ointment.

  5. The ointment should not be wet enough for clothes to stick.

  6. Do not use petroleum products on your tattoos.

  7. Do not use Neosporin on your tattoos.

  8. It is recommended to use Art Bound Studio’s Art Balm Organic Golden Butter, Lubriderm, or an Un-Scented & Natural Lotion ONLY

  9. If you’re using Sani-Derm, keep it on for the first 24 hours, up to 3 days. Pull close to the skin to release.

  10. If swelling or irritation occurs, remove Sani-Derm immediately.


AFTER NEW TATTOO IS HEALED

Once healed, always use sunscreen while outside to protect your tattoo investment. The sun will destroy the ink in your skin, causing it to age faster, resulting in a long-term dull effect with faded colors and a widening of tattoo lines.
