Tattoo Aftercare

By Bridget Hudzik, Beauty Guru
I have one, single, solitary tattoo. More to come eventually, but, for now, one is perfect for me. I remember the pain (not much tolerance for this girl) and how I was uber careful with the area during the healing process, listening to everything my artist told me to do. Ink Butter is an anti-inflammatory cream that will reduce redness and swelling and let your skin breathe as it heals. This all-natural lotion has essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to nourish, moisturize, and speed up the healing process for your tattoo. It's lightweight, non-comedogenic formula improves skin health and provides the ultimate absorption to help your new tattoo maintain its lasting color. Of course, follow what your artist tells you to do and leave the bandage on for however long they say. Clean it however they tell you to clean it after you remove the bandage. Air dry it. Then, apply a thin layer of Ink Butter gently on to your new ink, allowing it to absorb. Repeat 2 - 3 times daily. And always avoid direct sunlight and NO tanning when your first get your tattoo. Zero swimming or soaking also applies. Tight clothing is a serious no-no. And please, please, do not, under any circumstance, pick or scratch at your new ink no matter how much your body wants it. That will cause a nasty infection and money waste and more money spent to heal. Love and caress new ink, it's with you forever. And just as yourself, you always want it to look its best.
