Tattoo cream: the importance of protecting a new tattoo
After getting a tattoo it can be easy to overlook or forget your artist’s advice, especially if you’re excited or nervous! But if you don’t care for the health of your ink, it can lose colour or fade more quickly, and in extreme cases the skin can become irritated, damaged or infected.
A tattoo lasts for life, and by looking after your tattooed skin you can better help the design to stay well defined for longer and the skin healthy and hydrated.
A great and easy way to look after your tattooed skin is by using a specially formulated tattoo cream to protect it. This can help to keep your tattooed skin hydrated and preserve the colour of your tattoo.
We’ve put together our guide on tattoo cream, the tattoo healing period, how to apply tattoo cream and which tattoo cream to choose so you can make the most of your new ink.
