15 WAYS TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR NEW TATTOO

15 WAYS TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR NEW TATTOO

TATTOO ADVICE.. Some may think that sitting down and getting a tattoo is the hard part but as soon as your artist is done, Taking good care of your new tattoo right after you get it will help it heal quickly and stay vibrant but there are also quite a few mistakes you can make that can ruin your tattoo in the days, weeks, and months following you getting. 1. GET THINGS CLEAN Wash everything before you leave for the tattoo shop. That means your bed sheets, pillows, towels and any clothing you plan to wear for the length of the healing process. If you had a microscope to examine all the bacteria lurking around your home you’d be amazed and well, disgusted too! Before you doze off for the night put a clean towel on your bed and sleep on that. You’ll help prevent an fresh ink from staining your sheets, plus know you are sleeping on totally clean area at night. Every morning swap out your towel for a clean one, it’s simple. 2. DONT PICK AT IT Never pick at your scabs, regardless of how small they are or even how tempting it may be. Even the slightest picking action will leave you will a light spot that requires further touch ups. Not to mention, open bloody wounds make for a prime spot for bacteria growth too. Don’t do it! 3. OUT OF THE SUN The sun is your worst enemy after getting a new tattoo, avoid it at all costs. Even if you apply sunscreen, you still can’t catch rays safely, it just doesn’t work like that. While your skin is healing it will be ultra sensitive to sunlight; keep it protected at all times. 4. EAT FOOD BEFORE & AFTER Eat something immediately after you leave the shop. A cookie, a candy bar, anything. After oozing out all the plasma and sitting for hours your blood sugar levels are going to drop dramatically. When this happens your response to pain will be intensified! That’s assuming you don’t experience vertigo or simply pass out first. A small snack can go a long way to relive pain afterwards. 5. LET IT HEAL It can take at least six weeks for your new tattoo to heal, give it plenty of time. Many men want to rush the process but it doesn’t work like that. Remember, a tattoo is a lifelong piece of artwork that is going to be on your body forever! Treat it good for the first six weeks and it will look good for life. 6. KEEP IT COVERD Remove the bandage within 24 hours max. Ideally you should aim for 8 hours. In general, the longer the better with four to five hours being the absolute minimum. 7. WASH IT WELL Wash with hot water. There’s a saying, the hotter the better, and it’s absolutely true for tattoos. It feels awful and soothing at the same time, but it’s critically important. Remember, you’re trying to loosen up all that gunk covering your new tattoo. There’s a lot of dried lymph and coagulated blood on there! 8. JUST THE TIPS Scrub with your fingertips, never a wash cloth, sponge or towel. You can be rough with your fingertips and yet still be gentle on the skin. However with the last three items, it’s way too easy to be overly aggressive on your sensitive skin. Remember, fingertips not fingernails, we’re not digging here! 9. THE RIGHT SOAP Antibacterial soap isn’t magic! Many tattoo shops still recommend antibacterial soap like it’s worth its weight in gold. Truth is, it’s not. Studies have proven they are actually ineffective at cutting back on bacteria. The only reason why I still recommend them, is because most are free of fragrance, lotions and other gunk. Again, not because they kill bacteria. 10. AFTERCARE Your tattoo artist isn’t always right about after care. When it comes to sanitation and infection prevention. However, there are no set regulations for proper after care. Each tattoo artists follows their own belief and opinions. As much as I hate to say it, some continually go off old wives tales and myths that have been proven wrong over and over again. Remember, evaluate your options first, be smart, do your research! 11. COLOUR CHANGE Most, if not all tattoos will end up lightening up once they are fully healed. Don’t worry, relax this is completely normal. Remember, you have this huge flesh wound on your skin, within time new layers of the skin are going to grow back over it. 12. WATER IS NOT YOUR FRIEND No pools, no saunas, no extremely long showers for the first three weeks, minimum. Remember, a quick shower to freshen up is fine, however, a long shower is not. Anything more than 10 minutes in the shower and you’re going to have a bad time. Know that even if a pool is chlorinated, it’s still not okay to swim in! 13. KEEP YOUR HANDS CLEAN Wash your hands first before washing your tattoo! It’s so easy to forget, yet it’s a super important step to take. Spend a day walking around in public and your hands will be covered in all sorts of nasty bacteria. The last thing you want to do is rub that into your skin wound. So scrub your hands, knuckles and palm clean! Remember, it’s easily to get distracted when showing family and friends your new ink, you must do so with clean hands. Not doing so is literally the number one way to cause infections! 14. THE PEELING Peeling is completely normal. It will feel like a bad sunburn of sorts. Lotion will become your best friend during this time. The worst thing you can do is peel it, the best thing you can do is keep it well moisturized. 15. KEEP IT MOIST Do keep your new tattoo wound moist at all times. Ever wonder why doctors treat burn victims with dressing? It’s simple really, the moisturize allows healing cells to move across the wound and close it shut! Plus, it helps keep outside contamination where it belongs, out not in.

 SKEPTA X NIKE AIR MAX TAILWIND V - OUT NOW

SKEPTA X NIKE AIR MAX TAILWIND V - OUT NOW

Skepta has left an indelible mark on music in London and beyond with his game-changing flow and expansive creative universe—but he's also had a profound impact on footwear by applying his aesthetic to a handful of iconic Air Max designs. His latest collaboration re-imagines another treasured style from a golden age in sneaker history, the Air Max Tailwind V. For this Sk Air edition, Skepta drew inspiration from the natural world. Anchored by the concept of creative rebirth—represented by the butterfly and its metamorphosis—Skepta's take on the design utilises a sublimated print depicting butterfly wings surrounded by structural black webbing pulled from the Air Max Tailwind V Plus. The shoe integrates bold accents of Chrome from the Sk Shox, while subtle iridescence around the heel nods to the thermographic cover art from Skepta's 2019 album Ignorance Is Bliss.
