Tattoo healing: a crucial step
To guarantee the longevity of the tattoo, care must be taken to ensure that healing takes place well. Indeed, the ink inserted under the upper dermis with a needle causes inflammation of the skin and therefore a necessary healing afterwards. What is the definition of scarring? This is the phase during which healthy cells will replace damaged cells and the skin will regenerate. The first 6 hours after tattooing, keep the bandage applied by the tattoo artist to avoid dust. Then, 2 to 3 times a day, the tattoo should be washed in lukewarm water with an antibacterial soap to remove the remains of ink, blood, and dry with a gauze pad. Then apply a healing and moisturizing cream to prevent the skin from drying out.
