How to take care of a new tattoo | Seven Tattoo Studio

Embrace Your Tattoo Journey | Seven Tattoo Studio

Congratulations, you've just taken a bold step with a new tattoo, adding to your unique story. At Seven Tattoo Studio, we're not just about the ink, we're about the entire experience. That's why we're providing you these critical aftercare steps for your journey.

First Day/Night

Your first night with a new tattoo is just like bringing a luxury sports car home for the first time. You wouldn't leave it out in the rain, would you? Similarly, keep that bandage on for a minimum of 6 hours, overnight if possible. Any bleeding? Don't fret. It’s like breaking in a new pair of shoes. Gently remove any fabric stuck to the tattoo with lukewarm water.

Cleaning Your Tattoo

Think of your tattoo as a high-performance engine, it needs the best care. Make sure your hands are clean and unscented antibacterial soap is ready. Gently clean the tattoo using a circular motion until all ointment and plasma are removed.

Your Daily Tattoo Aftercare Routine

Consistency is key in the journey of tattoo healing, much like mastering any skill. Apply Aquaphor or Bacitracin 2-3 times a day for the first 5-7 days. When the peeling begins, switch to a regular fragrance-free lotion. Your tattoo should be healed within 2-4 weeks.

Important Dos and Don’ts

Remember, a great tattoo requires a great canvas. Keep your towels, bedding, and clothes clean during the healing process. Showers are fine, but avoid soaking your tattoo. Protect it from direct sunlight until completely healed, and always use sunblock (minimum SPF 50) to maintain the vibrancy of your tattoo.
