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. Now I’m going to tell you a little bit about allergic reactions. You are going to
have a lot of different materials on your skin and you can have a allergic reaction.
The ointment people sometimes have a allergic reaction to them. You often see this when
little red bumps would break out all over the tattoo. If you do have this type of reaction
talk to your artist first what we usually recommend is to stop using the ointment and
just keep your tattoo clean and just stop using anything let the tattoo dry out. That
is when the care of your skin becomes more important then a tattoo. We would fix the
tattoo afterwards we just want to get you healthy. Sometimes people have allergic reaction
to the tapes that we use. We use a transport which is kind of a plastic tape, a lot of
times people have bad allergic reaction to that. Basically if you do have a bad reaction
to the tape and you are going to do the seram wrap at night just switch to a cloth tape
of something like that. A lot of times people have a allergic reaction to the ink itself.
Most people have allergic reaction to the color red that is why we often call it red
reaction this is could be a simple as being very itchy and hard to heal to extreme pluckiness
and raising. Unfortunately there is no way to know if you are allergic to red it’s one
in so many people have it and there is not much you can do about it. Your body will filter
it out it takes a good long time to do this but it is just a normal reaction. I had people
have reaction to different colors like purple, but red seems to be the most common of them.
If you do have a allergic reaction to your tattoo do not freak out, talk to your artist
they would tell you have to take care of it and you will be fine.
