This is it, you’ve got your new ink. The next part of the job is yours. The aftercare and healing process is an important part of the entire tattoo process. If your tattoo artist did not discuss aftercare with you before your get inked, it will be covered before you leave the studio. It is important at this point that you feel comfortable to ask all the questions you may have.
Take all the time you need and do not forget that you can always contact the studio once you get back home. Follow our aftercare recommendations to keep your tattoo as vibrant as possible.
These guidelines are based on a combination of vast professional experience, common sense, research and extensive clinical practice.
This is not to be considered a substitute for medical advice from a doctor. If you suspect an infection, seek immediate medical attention.
Be aware that many doctors have not received specific training regarding tattoos. Your local tattoo artist at The Black Hat Tattoo may be able to refer you to a tattoo-friendly medical professional.
