Got A Tattoo? What's Next?

Proper tattoo aftercare is crucial for preserving your artwork’s vibrancy and ensuring a smooth recovery. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you navigate the tattoo aftercare process:

Day 1-2:

The Fresh Ink Stage

  • Leave the bandage on for a few hours or as recommended by your artist.
  • Gently clean the tattoo with lukewarm water and mild, fragrance-free soap.
  • Pat the tattoo dry with a clean paper towel, avoiding rubbing.
  • Start applying a thin layer of tattoo-specific ointment 48 hours after tattoo completed (do not use any other product)
Day 3-14:

Healing Begins

  • Continue washing your tattoo gently twice a day and start applying a thin layer of tattoo-specific ointment 48 hours after tattoo completed (do not use any other product)
  • Be mindful of scabbing and peeling; do not pick or scratch your tattoo.
  • Wear clean, breathable clothing to prevent friction and irritation.
  • Avoid soaking your tattoo in pools, hot tubs, or excessive sunlight.
Week 2-4:

Ensuring Vibrancy

  • Your tattoo may still flake or peel; keep moisturizing to prevent excessive dryness.
  • Protect your tattoo from direct sunlight with clothing or sunscreen.
  • Resist the temptation to swim in chlorinated pools or soak in hot tubs.
  • Remember, everyone’s healing process is different; be patient and let your tattoo recover at its own pace.
Long-term Care:

Keeping Your Tattoo Beautiful

  • Moisturize regularly to prevent your tattoo from drying out and losing color.
  • Apply sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) before exposing your tattoo to the sun.
  • Stay hydrated and maintain overall skin health to preserve your tattoo’s vibrancy.

Tattoo Aftercare Products

We take your tattoo’s aftercare seriously, which is why we offer a range of top-quality tattoo aftercare products designed to enhance your healing experience and keep your artwork looking its best. Two of our standout products are:

Numbing Co

Tattooing can be uncomfortable, especially for larger pieces or more sensitive areas. Our numbing cream provides temporary relief from pain and discomfort during the tattooing process. It is carefully formulated to ensure your comfort without compromising the tattoo’s outcome. It’s applied topically and begins working within minutes.

Balm Tattoo

Tattooed skin requires special care to keep it hydrated and protected. Our tattoo balm is rich in nourishing ingredients to help your skin heal properly while preserving the colors and details of your tattoo. We also believe in the power of nature, which is why our tattoo balm is made from all-natural ingredients, ensuring that your skin gets the best care without harsh chemicals.

Asked Questions

In the first 24 hours after getting a tattoo, it’s crucial to provide proper care to ensure the best healing results. After your tattoo session at our tattoo studio in Bali, we recommend leaving the protective bandage on for the time specified by your tattoo artist, typically a few hours. Once you remove the bandage, gently wash the tattooed area with lukewarm water and mild, fragrance-free soap to remove excess ink and blood. Pat it dry with a clean paper towel, avoiding any rubbing. Apply a thin layer of our balm tattoo to keep the skin hydrated and promote healing. Remember to avoid direct sunlight, excessive moisture, and rough clothing during this crucial initial phase.

You can typically shower as usual after getting a tattoo, but it’s essential to be mindful of a few precautions. Most artists recommend waiting 24 hours before exposing your new tattoo to water. When you shower, use lukewarm water and a mild, fragrance-free soap. Avoid scrubbing the tattooed area, and instead, gently pat it dry with a clean towel. After showering, apply a thin layer of tattoo-specific moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated. During the healing process, it’s essential to avoid hot tubs, pools, and excessive soaking, as these can disrupt the healing and potentially lead to complications.

Proper tattoo aftercare is vital to ensure your tattoo heals well and maintains its vibrancy. At Mason’s Ink, we recommend using our very own tattoo balm. This product is specially formulated to provide the right balance of hydration and protection for healing tattoos. It’s essential to avoid petroleum-based products, as they can clog pores and hinder the healing process. Additionally, using fragrance-free, gentle soap and lukewarm water for cleaning the tattooed area is crucial. Sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher is also recommended to protect your tattoo from UV damage once it’s fully healed. Always follow the specific aftercare instructions provided by your tattoo artist for the best results.
