New Tattoos Should Be Treated Like Wounds
We're getting questions about proper care for tattoos.
Tattoos take 2 to 4 weeks to heal. Up to 5% will lead to a bacterial infection...and some people get allergic reactions or scarring.
New tattoos should be treated like wounds...and cleaned with soap and water at least twice daily. Moisturizer should be applied after each wash...and when the skin feels dry.
