Getting a tattoo is an exciting experience, but it’s crucial to take proper care of your skin afterwards.

With 1 in 5 Australians embracing body art and the global tattoo market on the rise, we understand the importance of tattoo aftercare.

The tattooing process involves needles and ink, which can pose risks such as skin infections, allergic reactions, scarring, and scar tissue overgrowth.

To minimize these risks, follow these essential aftercare tips:

  • Keep your freshly tattooed skin clean by washing gently with non-fragranced soap and water.
  • Apply a small amount of non-fragranced, alcohol-free, and dye-free moisturiser several times a day.
  • Avoid petroleum-based products, as they can cause ink fading.
  • Avoid swimming and spas, but showers are safe.
  • Opt for loose clothing to allow the tattooed area to breathe.
  • Shield the tattoo from UV light by keeping it out of the sun for the first few weeks. Resist the urge to pick at healing skin and seek medical attention if concerned.
