1. Remove the plastic:

2. Do not touch it with dirty hands:
Every time you go to touch your tattoo, be sure to wash your hands and, do not allow others to touch it during the healing period.
3. Wash it well:
After removing the plastic, and preferably twice a day, wash the tattoo with warm water and a neutral soap, massage with your fingertips and rinse. Once the tattoo has been cleaned, wait until the skin is completely dry and apply the cream.
4. Promotes healing:
To prevent the area from drying out and / or becoming infected, apply the cream recommended by your tattoo artist for seven days after the tattoo.
5. Avoid wearing tight clothes:
During the healing period of the tattoo, which lasts 10 to 15 days approximately. It avoids the use of tight garments on the tattooed area.
6. Keep it moisturized:
After the first week with the recommended cream, use another dye-free and fragrance-free moisturizer.
7. Avoid the sun and damp places:
Avoid direct exposure to the sun or places with high humidity such as saunas, swimming pools or prolonged baths in the shower, as these can affect the final coloring of the tattoo, and could expose it to unnecessary infections.
8. Avoid doing exercises:
If you do exercise, wash your tattoo immediately after finishing your routine to prevent the sweat from coming in contact with the tattoo. Do not forget that it is a small wound and that the basis for its healing is hygiene.
9. Never remove scabs:
If some type of scab should form while the tattoo heals, under no circumstances should you detach it, since along with it you could take the pigment, causing the tattoo to look uneven.
10. Use sunscreen:
And from now on, avoid direct exposure to the sun, and if you have to do it try to cover the tattoo and use a sunscreen to prevent colors from vanishing.
