Tattoo Retouching

Tattoo retouching Tattoos are permanent, but that doesn't mean they don't need upkeep. In fact, most tattoo designs will require a touch up at some point. There are a number of things that can fade your ink, like sun exposure or water, and it's important to be conscious of these factors.

Body Piercing

Body piercing is just what it sounds like — a piercing or puncture made in the body by a needle. After that, a piece of jewelry is inserted in the hole. Commonly pierced body parts are the ears, nose, and the belly button. Oral piercings include the lip, cheek, and tongue. When a piercing is healed, some people will choose to expand the size of the hole to wear certain types of jewelry, including plugs and tunnels. Stretching should be done in small increments to decrease the chance of damage to the piercing and scarring.

Tattoo aftercare

Tattoo aftercare is a vital step to making sure your tattoo doesn’t fade, crack, or heal incorrectly. Follow these tattoo aftercare instructions to ensure that your new tattoo heals correctly: Your tattoo will be wrapped in a clear plastic wrap by your artist upon completion. Leave this wrap on for 1 hour following your appointment. Do not rewrap your tattoo. The wound needs to breathe in order to heal. When it is time to take the wrap off, gently wash the tattooed area with warm to hot water, using an antibacterial soap. Wash the tattoo with your fingertips or hand only, ridding the area of any dried blood, which can form a scab. After washing and for the duration of the healing process, pat the tattoo dry with a soft cloth, or just let it air dry Don't use petroleum-based products, such as Vaseline or Neosporin, as these are too heavy and may clog the pores. HealingDuring your tattoo’s healing time, do not use a washcloth or a loofa of any kind to clean the area. Gently apply a thin layer of fragrance free lotion to the tattoo. Lotions that we recommend include Aveeno, Eucerin, Keri, Lubriderm, Curel, and Jergens. Apply the lotion 5-7 times per day for the entire 2 week period. Do not use lotions that contain color, fragrance, or sparkles until the healing is complete. For larger tattoos, we recommend: Aquaphor ointment, this seems to be the best, made for tattoo ointment. Apply just enough to make it shine (a little goes a long way) and work it in well, dabbing off the excess with a paper towel. Too much ointment will suffocate the tattoo and liquefy any scabs that may have formed, causing the ink to fall out. For any tattoo, Aquaphor or lotion can be applied when the tattoo is feeling stiff or dry, but beware of over-moisturizing. The area must be kept clean. However, avoid long showers or baths for the first 2 weeks following your tattoo. As long as scabs are present, it is important to avoid swimming in pools or the ocean, and soaking in a spa or a Jacuzzi is not recommended. This period usually lasts about 2 weeks. Finally, the sun is not a tattoo’s friend. It is especially important to avoid direct, long periods of exposed sunlight while your tattoo heals. Prolonged exposure during the first 2 weeks can create a number of problems like drying out, and promotes scarring, which can cause scabs and fade your tattoo. Do not apply sun block while your tattoo is healing. When the tattoo is fully-healed, high quality and high SPF sun blocks are highly recommended. We have seen a number of people over the years over-applying lotion and ointment. Keeping your tattoo too moist will only prolong the healing process. More is not better and applying more ointment will not make your tattoo heal any faster. Remember, this is a tattoo, not a scraped knee. Each person’s body heals differently, meaning that a tattoo on one person may heal much quicker or much longer than another persons tattoo. Peeling and scabsScabs and peeling are part of the tattoo process and simply mean that the tattoo is healing. Let the process run its course to ensure your tattoo looks its best for a long time. We offer free touch-ups for your new tattoo, in the event that the healing process does remove some of the color. If the work is done by one of our artists, you're welcome to come in and have the tattoo touched up within 3 months of the original tattoo date, unless you have abused the tattoo. It is simple, follow our tattoo aftercare guidelines, and we will touch your tattoo up for free, if needed. We hope that these tattoo aftercare hints help you throughout your tattoo’s healing process. Take good care of your tattoo and it is sure to remain beautiful for many years to come!
