After tattooing tattoo master has done 50% of the job, the other 50% you will have to be done by you, with the proper maintaining of the tattoo according to instructions given in the tattoo studio. The tattoo with the proper procedure will on average heal within a week. Within that week, the tattoo will have to be washed, maintained clean and put on a cream for fastening the process of epitalisation of the skin (healing). Also if you are participating in certain kind of activities which cause you to sweat very much, such activities are best to be avoided. The instructions vary from person to person, it depends on the part of the body where the tattoo will be made and on the environment to which every individual is exposed. That applies also if the person that will be tattooed works or spends time in conditions with a lot of dust, increased humidity, temperature or works in an office etc. The instructions must be followed rigorously, otherwise when the tattoo heals it will be of lesser quality.
After the tattoo heals you should not expose it to the sun and it is advisable that once in a day you put some kind of body lotion on it as long as the young skin has not healed properly and does not develop its natural elasticity and humidity. After about three months after the tattoo has been made no further special care for the tattooed skin is acquired or necessary.
