FIRST OF ALL: STAY HYDRATED
Keep up your water intake! This isn't only a tip for your life, but also super important in order to keep your new tattoo healthy. Apply a thin layer of healing lotion to the area after each time you clean it, (remember to ensure the area is completely dry first).
RUN FROM THE SUN
We know that summer without the sun it's just not right! So you can still enjoy your summer days. Wear UV protectant clothing always that you're exposed to the sun for at least the next month. Sunscreen is essential to keep your ink bright and healthy, but the recommendation is to start with tattoo-safe sunscreen only after the healing process (3 to 4 weeks).
STAY AWAY FROM WATER
Yes! You can still take showers after getting a new tattoo. We actually recommend do it! :D
But pools, hot tubes, oceans, rivers, and lakes are out of limits during the healing process time. Your tattoo's just like an open wound, and the risk of infections is extremely high due to the number of bacteria present in these places. Keep this clean and dry.
TIME TO SHOW IT OF
It's ok to get some fresh ink during summertime. But summer goes and tattoos stay. So just make sure you follow all these aftercare instructions and we promise that next summer your tattoo will be still bright as the sun.
