Aftercare Instructions for Your New Tattoo

There is a wide variety of opinion about what is the best aftercare regimen for ensuring the best results for your new Tattoo. Considerations include not only the speed and cleanliness in healing your new Tattoo, but also the method that results in obtaining the best color.

When the area of the body that is being worked on is quite large or some areas of the body that are simply awkward or difficult to bandage with gauze and tape, it has become quite common for Tattoo Artists to cover the freshly done Tattoo with plastic-film wrap, such as Saran wrap.

Over time, we have found this last method to be without question the BEST METHOD for wrapping freshly Tattooed skin. No matter the size or body part Tattooed, many Tattoo Artists (and Enthusiasts) have discovered that plastic-film or wrap is a preferable dressing. It can be easier to affix and wrap the Tattooed area and when removing the dressing hours later the Tattoo will not "stick" to the plastic-film like it will to a gauzy bandage.

if you read -- and FOLLOW -- our suggestions below, that you'll have an excellent chance of making sure that your new Tattoo will be the best that it can be!
