Nothing is better than painting the world in your own colors. However, getting your imagination inked somewhere on your body may satisfy you as well. The history of imprinting images on one another's body is as old as the history of mankind itself. Where few are terrified even by the thought of needle piercing into their skin, there are many who like to speak out their minds by using tattoos as the medium of communication.

Show me a man with a tattoo and I'll show you a man with an interesting past

Some tattoos are meant to recognize where some are meant for disguise; each and every tattoo recites a different story. But the fact that tattoos add a lot of character to our boring bodies will never change. Every tattoo is initially a desire which turns into a vision and then finally, a reality. Well! Not every tattoo which you desire will become a beautiful reality as sometimes it can also become your life's biggest mistake. We all know the terms and conditions of getting permanently inked then why not take the necessary precautions.


In order to make sure that the end product of your vision turns into a more beautiful reality, here are some tattoo aftercare tips:

Cleanliness


A tattoo is like an unhealed wound and hence, it requires equal amount of care. So, once you get yourself inked and bandaged make sure that you keep it clean. After removing the bandage, you must wash your tattoo with warm water and a mild soap to prevent it from infections.

Excess Ink


Once you will get inked, you will often encounter ink stains on your clothes or body. We want you not to worry and must wipe off the excess ink with a clean paper towel. It is natural for your skin to release excess ink out of it.

Cover it!


It is not necessarily important to cover up your tattoo until there is a possibility of making contact with dirt or water. Once you think that it might get a little hard to protect your recently-done tattoo then you must cover it up with a bandage.

Scrub-less


Make sure that even while cleaning your tattoo, you gently dab on the tattoo instead of rubbing or scrubbing it. Likewise, you must prevent the use of face wash which has scrubbing agents in it.

Moisturize


Like other parts of your body even your tattoo requires moisturizing. So, make sure to moisturize your tattoo at least once a day using petroleum jelly-based ointment.


So, what does your tattoo say? We hope something good! Stay tuned for more lifestyle related updates.
