Aftercare!!!! What do you use?
 
So, you've picked a great artist, one who knows what they're doing and who knows how to incorporate your idea into one that would translate well into a good tattoo that will last a lifetime.

But now is the hard part, it's all on you to take care of your freshly wounded skin. How do you do it? What does your artist wrap your tattoo in before you leave? Do you use the traditional A&D Ointment and unscented lotion technique? Or do you use H2Ocean? I know I have my NEW favorite technique, but I'm a bit biased as I have some stake in the company's success...but I'd still love to hear what you all find successful to keep your tattoos looking fresh, bright and beautiful.

I am all about hibiclens myself. I was with it, and that is it. I do use unscented lotion towards the end.. but that it is. This stuff is AMAZING!

Hibiclens? Really? Doesn't that have alcohol in it? I've never heard of anyone using that for tattoo aftercare....interesting....

Did you get my email about strangleholdmerch?

An antibacterial soap is pretty necessary to wash the tattoo 2-3 times a day, apart from it I prefer H2Ocean, you can also go for any other aqua based moisturizer.

Actually Shawn, it's been found that the whole antibacterial soap/ointment/moisturizer routine is actually not the most effective because a significant amount of bacteria can still get into the wound just between applications.

Saniderm is a breathable adhesive product that actually completely seals out any type of bacteria from reaching the tattoo, however it also acts as a healing agent because it traps all of the enzymes and natural fluids that your body produces to heal itself. This allows the tattoo to heal quicker, brighter and with much less scabbing. And there is no maintenance, you just put on the adhesive bandage and you're done, its waterproof and flexible, you just go about daily life and within a week or so the tattoo is completely healed.

It's a really beautiful thing.

You should try it out, you'll be incredibly amazed. I've talked with artists from all over the country who doubted it because it sounds too good to be true, but now they're ordering it regularly and slowly transitioning their shops to use it as their main recommended aftercare product.



(disclaimer: I am an independent salesmen for Saniderm, if you'd like to try some out or place an order, let me know!!)

Hello, Keep your tattoo moist; allowing it to dry out will result in a thick scab forming. This is not desired; it slows the healing process and will possibly damage the tattoo. Your tattooist will recommend a cream to use...
