How to Care for a New Tattoo : Avoiding Unusual Reactions to New Tattoos


Hi my name is Sean Beck at Mom’s Tattoos in
Wilmington, NC. on behalf of Expert Village here to tell you a little bit of tattoo after
care. Alright I’m going to tell you a little bit about the unusually things that your tattoo
might do that might freak you out during the after care. Simple things when you take a
shower and you wash your tattoo it looks like it is bleeding out color it is not it is just
part of the skin, it is just part of the top layer removing itself from your skin. Don’t
freak out about this stuff. Quiet often after the tattoo has peeled it is going to look
like your skin has got kind of a clear sulfa like texture to it, it often makes all the
colors looked bleached out. Don’t freak out about this stuff it is just fine. Same with
the peeling the peeling is going to look like the tattoo is coming apart it is probably
not. If you are freaked out about these experiences don’t worry your artist just call your artist
they are going to tell you to calm down and you would be fine. But these are some of the
strengths that you might experience with tattoos. I can’t cover them all cause there has been
a lot of strange things but I guess if you freak out just call your tattoo artist they
probably put your mind in ease. Okay in conclusion basics keep your tattoo clean, keep it moisturize,
keep it out of direct sunlight, don’t soak it, if you have any problems or question contact
your artist they have the best advice for you and good luck with your tattoo. My name
is Sean I work at Mom’s Tattoos in Wilmington, NC on behalf of Expert Village you have a
good day.

  1. what if it itches and the flaking looks like white clear skin coming off and my tatoo doesnt look shiny and it looks fadded

  2. A new tattoo should never peel, flake, or worse scab over. All of these reactions are pulling ink out. It happens when you let it dry out. Keep it simple. use Preparation H on new tattoos and wrap with plastic wrap. The will heal in about 4 or 5 days. No itching or swelling. I have 25 hours worth of work and worked in a tattoo studio.
