Don’t Wear Tight-Fitting Clothes Over a New Tattoo, and Follow Aftercare Instructions Strictly
The first few weeks while a tattoo is healing are critical to maintaining its detail, color, and vibrancy. Do not wear tight-fitting clothes over a new tattoo, submerge it in water, or fail to follow aftercare instructions. If you weather the healing time correctly, tattoo care becomes a matter of routine sunscreen and moisturizer. Your skin health will always reflect in your tattoos. Protect your skin from UV damage and drying out by applying UV protection and moisturizer regularly.
That said, tattoos fade over time due to various factors, no matter how hard you try to preserve them. Our skin keeps aging and growing, and our tattoos reflect our journeys. Getting a touch-up is extremely common for regular customers and folks in the tattoo community and can help you maintain the look and vibrancy you want.
