Following a tattoo, clients can expect some common aftercare procedures to ensure proper healing and minimize the risk of complications. It is important to follow the tattoo artist's instructions, as they may have specific recommendations based on the size, location, and style of the tattoo. Here are some general suggestions for tattoo aftercare:

  • Cleanliness: Keep the tattooed area clean and dry for the first 24 hours after getting the tattoo. Avoid touching the tattoo with dirty hands and use a mild, fragrance-free soap to gently wash the area.

  • Moisturizing: After the initial 24 hours, apply a thin layer of fragrance-free, non-comedogenic moisturizer to keep the tattooed skin hydrated. Avoid using petroleum-based products as they can clog pores.

  • Protection: Protect the tattoo from direct sunlight, excessive moisture, and friction during the healing process. Avoid swimming in pools, hot tubs, or the ocean, as well as activities that may cause excessive sweating or rubbing against the tattooed area.

  • Healing time: Every tattoo heals at a different rate, but it usually takes about 2-4 weeks for the skin to fully heal. During this time, it is essential to avoid picking, scratching, or peeling off any scabs that may form.

While most tattoos heal without complications, there are potential medical complications that may occur as a result of the procedure. These complications include:

  • Infection: If proper aftercare practices are not followed, bacteria can enter the open wound and cause an infection. Signs of infection may include increased pain, redness, swelling, pus, or a foul odor. If any signs of infection occur, it is important to seek medical attention.

  •  Allergic reactions: Some individuals may develop an allergic reaction to the tattoo ink or other products used during the tattooing process. Symptoms may include itching, redness, rash, or swelling. If an allergic reaction is suspected, consult a healthcare professional.

  • Bleeding disorders: Individuals with bleeding disorders, such as hemophilia or platelet disorders, may experience excessive bleeding during or after the tattooing procedure. It is crucial for individuals with bleeding disorders to consult with their healthcare provider before getting a tattoo and take appropriate precautions.

It is important to note that these are general guidelines, and it is always recommended to consult with a professional tattoo artist and healthcare provider for personalized advice and care instructions following a tattoo.

We ask that you not use any form of numbing cream. If we suspect that you have, we will be forced to cancel your session.  The issues involve products that are labeled to contain unsafe levels of unsterile ingredients as well as ingredients such as lidocaine at concentrations that are higher than what is permitted for over-the-counter and topical pain relief products. When these products, that contain high concentrations of lidocaine intended to be used before or during certain cosmetic procedures, are applied in ways that could lead to increased absorption of the drug product through the skin, it may lead to serious injury such as irregular heartbeat, seizures, and breathing difficulties. These products may also interact with medications or dietary supplements a consumer is taking. Additionally, when lidocaine is applied over large areas of skin, particularly on irritated or broken skin, for prolonged periods of time and when the skin is covered, the product may cause serious injury.

 

The FDA recommends consumers: 

  • not use OTC pain relief products with more than 4% lidocaine on their skin

  • not apply OTC pain relief products heavily over large areas of skin or to irritated or broken skin.

  • not wrap skin treated with OTC pain relief products with plastic wrap or other dressings. Wrapping or covering treated skin with any type of material can increase the chance of serious side effects.

While there are tattoo removal procedures available, they can be expensive, time-consuming, and may not completely remove the tattoo. It's important to carefully consider the decision to get body art, as it will likely be a lifelong commitment.

Tattoo inks, dyes, and pigments have not been specifically approved by the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use on the skin. The FDA does regulate some aspects of tattooing, such as the use of certain color additives in cosmetics, but they have not provided specific approval for tattoo inks.

 

It is important to note that the long-term health consequences of using tattoo inks are not yet fully understood. Some tattoo inks may contain ingredients that could potentially cause adverse reactions or have unknown effects on the body over time. It is always a good idea to do thorough research on tattoo artists and their practices, as well as the ingredients in the inks they use, before getting a tattoo.

 

If you have concerns about the safety of tattoo inks, it is recommended to consult with a dermatologist or medical professional who can provide more information and guidance based on your specific situation.
