Guide for the Care of Tattoo
How well a tattoo ages and how long the vibrant colors are the most affected by the three first few weeks tracking a new tattoo. This statement implies that happens often implicit in the world of tattoos, but what is tacitly understood by everyone, Tattoos do not change over time. We know that the skin is constantly changing, we know that the appearance of a tattoo must change too. As the skin stretches or contracts, is injured, or simply ages, tattoos also stretch, shrink, and age. In addition, certain colors (red) are more likely to disappear others (blue) and evolve more rapidly.
This article describes the changes that the tattoo can be expected and how they can help mitigate changes adverse detailed information and monitoring of preventive measures can be taken during the duration of the tattoo.
It is natural that keep looking for your new tattoo in the mirror at this point, we should not feel too narcissistic. People in the store, no doubt, also attempt. Now that the tattoo is done, the artist has all the disposable items and remove the tattoo machine dismantling late to the tubes and needles can clean and sterilize the instruments. The workspace is Saran Wrap removed, if used, and cleaned, as he began the whole process.
The healing process begins almost immediately But the best and the first layer of protection, the skin has been penetrated. Your tattoo artist will take immediate steps to remedy this situation. Your tattoo should be cleaned alcohol once again, the feeling of freshness is a relief for the sensation of heat caused by swelling. A final layer of Vaseline (or any other ointment topic of choice) will apply, then a bandage. Is that your tattoo while nine were hidden the first hours. Bands vary from store to store, even the tattoo tattoo. Sometimes a sterile medical adhesive tape is used. But tattoos, others as a very large piece back, it is impossible to tread that way. Instead of this, only a transparent film, in the hands of a cast can be used. The purpose of the tape to prevent infection and promote healing. Each sterile material achieves these goals is good for the task. Other options include a block of Telfa nonstick, and even a layer of uncomfortable position in the body.
Your tattoo artist will tell you what to do to take care of your new tattoo. They are not and issue important instructions. The burden of prevention of infection is advance its case. Despite all efforts on behalf of your tattoo artist, assuming you're happy with your new tattoo and you can afford. Council or not, but if you are happy with your tattoo, I may say that, before leaving.
Here again, the tattooists sometimes like taking a photo of the room before leaving. Ideally, they would get a good image for your portfolio or a website where the tattoo is completely healed. But that would mean that customers must return the order Express to provide a photo session usually does not happen. In contrast, most tattoos are images taken just after the tattoo is done. Sometimes customers exchange for more tattoos, giving the opportunity to photograph the part cured.
The next two weeks are a critical time for you and your new tattoo, so the tattoo shops bother to give written instructions for follow-up clients. If you looked in aftercare at all, no But we realize that these instructions may vary from store to store, and they have also changed over time. There are several reasons for change. The different products postoperative care are available in different places, even in the same continent.
Tattoo was apprenticed to some products and may continue using though to go out and create your own store. Experience and history with these products is important to follow the same way that experience is important for the choice of inks Tattoo. Confidence in a product or technique is based on years of working with hundreds if not thousands of customers.
But with all the variations of time, place and artist Tattoo, we are still some major issues and instructions that run through aftercare. The common denominator is twofold: to prevent infection and promotes healing. To this is added a third goal to try to retain as much ink as possible in the tattoo and begins to understand the reasoning behind all maintenance instructions later. The following is a list of generic monitoring what to expect during the first weeks with your new tattoo and what you should do to take care of it.
DAY 1: This is the big day the day that is tattooed. While most tattoo artists tell you out of your dressing at least two hours and I hope at some between two and twelve hours, they are actually shooting is leave it overnight. You want the tattoo to remain moist and protected as long as possible. Do not overdo this, without embargo. Leave the bandage all night prevents the new tattoo to meet your pajamas or sheets on that first night, but the next morning should be considered as the limit than the length of the strip should remain in place. Ideally, then, one day, you will not see, much less touch, your new tattoo.
DAY 2: Wash your hands! However, before touching the tattoo that includes the removal of the bandage, wash your hands with antibacterial soap. Whether its new ritual, a bit like tattoo artists before putting on gloves. Remove the bandage, slowly, where he remained in the tattoo. If this happens, and then add hot sauce (In the shower may be the easiest way) until it comes free and shoot. Slowly, oh so gently, wash your new tattoo with mild soap and warm water. Its aim is to remove the blood, lymph, ink, or Vaseline that was left to the skin surface. You do not want to rub or even use a washcloth. Instead, use your hand and gently out everything on the surface. Do not soak the tattoo for the pleasure of soaking, however. Once clean, stop the wash. Pat dry with a clean towel, being careful not to rub. This is probably their first long look, all clean and new in its former glory. You're not going to apply a new dressing.
Exception 1 in the game Interview: The vast majority of the people do not need a second package, but sometimes twice a helmet is the best solution for some people. People who are likely to form a thick crust scabs and have a reduced capacity for the skin to heal itself or with the ink does not seem right to stay (you know from past experience tattoo) you can try a second band, but probably not more than twelve hours. After Wash as above, apply another layer of Vaseline own (or any product has been used) and rebandage (with dressing the same type as used for the first time, or maybe just a transparent film and tape).
As the skin heals the tattoo again want to keep it moist. How I can prevent crusts, which eliminates the color of the tattoo and itching temptation to touch the tattoo, even zero. To avoid drying, use a cream to moisturize the tattoo. How often and how much? You want to use enough the tattoo feels tight, dry or itchy skin, and want to get a thin layer as it does not clog pores.
What kind of cream or lotion should be used? There are many to choose from, and each artist will perform and something tattooee different. What is, however, is to read the labels. You want to avoid alcohol because it dries the skin. At this point, they also want to prevent oil, grease, food Mineral oil (which is in Vaseline), and lanolin (wool removed) because they block the pores. You want to avoid perfume because it does nothing for you and could prove be an irritant to the newly tattooed skin. What are their options? They are divided into two main categories: Products manufactured exclusively for products tattoo and monitoring, you can buy at any pharmacy, supermarket or pharmacy.
Specialized products tattoo (Tattoo Goo, Black Cat Super Healing Salve, THC tattoo maintenance, etc) can be neither better nor worse than regular moisturizers supermarket. Again, this is read the labels. Some of these specialized products usually sold in tattoo parlors, beeswax containing dyes and perfumes. Some contain mixtures of homeopathic herbs, vitamins and oils. Moisturizers and regular lotions (curd, Lubriderm, A and D ointment) are substantially the same, no fresh packaging and the word "tattoo" in the name. Once again, may contain petroleum jelly or lanolin, dyes and perfumes. You want something so perfectly moist and neutral to its chemical composition as possible.
An antibiotic cream, maybe? Well, here's the deal with that. Many, many, many people use antibiotic creams to control your new tattoo (such as Neosporin, Polysporin, bacitracin, Bepanthen, etc.) An antibiotic, however, is to kill bacteria and may contain, I hope not present. antibiotic creams are not necessarily promote healing. Furthermore, in a very small percentage of people who are allergic certain antibiotics, a relatively high dose of all these bites skin may lead to the ultimate in allergic reactions, anaphylactic shock, a body allergic reaction that is characterized by difficulty breathing and low pressure pressure. Thus, when an antibiotic is not really necessary, unless an infection develops, it will do damage unless you just happen to be allergic to it.
Avoid wearing tight clothing restrictions, including shoes, if your new tattoo is on the right foot on top of the new tattoo. Wear breathable allowing fresh air to get the tattoo, cotton is ideal. No nylon stockings, for example, polyester shirts, o. Do not breathe not, and can also attach a new tattoo.
You can also avoid hard workouts that are weak the new tattoo or cause excessive sweating. Remember that your skin is healing, and these early weeks are crucial for the final appearance and longevity of your tattoo. A small amount of prevention is now a valuable reward later.
Thus, on day 2, remember Wear clothes and take your moisturizer with you, with some hand wipes or antibacterial liquid hand-washing before hydrate the tattoo.
DAY 3: Take your normal shower and do our best to not soak the tattoo, but you can gently wash the Day 2. Wash hands and Apply your moisturizer with often as necessary to keep the tattoo dry.
DAYS 4-14: If you notice signs of infection or an allergic reaction, your tattoo will go through a couple of different phases of this period of two weeks. Ideally, your tattoo does not really scabies in the sense that we normally think of it. In contrast, the skin color and the damage can simply peel like a sunburn, it becomes flaky and fall. Like sunburn, does not want help. Never scratch or pick at the skin (Or crust) of your new tattoo. Never, never, never. The thinner the scabies, where appropriate, the best, even paper thin. delay healing scabs and can kill the color of the new tattoo. Adhering strictly to the "no" in the first two weeks. If the itch is driving you crazy, you can use an antihistamine, but check with your doctor first.
Days 15-21: In general, tattoos, will be healed completely, somewhere between two and three weeks, although most it only takes two weeks. Until the tattoo is completely peeled or scab has completely fallen off, your tattoo is not complete. Even when the shell is finished or scab is gone, the new layer of skin that forms on your tattoo is very sensitive. In three weeks, if the tattoo is completely healed, you should always avoid the sun, but can return to your other vices-pool, sauna, etc.
Just like when you're sitting at your tattoo and signed the contract, remember that tattoo artists are not doctors. The guidelines and give you the above guidelines are: working guidelines for the majority of the population. Only doctor can give medical advice and he or she is the only person you should consult such guidance. Do not trust what they say or have friends do. Do not rely on word of mouth. Its main source of information are your tattoo artist, in the form of instructions and follow up based on experience, and her doctor, based on training.
Manhattan Melodrama one
Once the tattoo is completely healed, please do not play in the bath tub and splashed with chlorine in drinking whatever you want. When is the sun, though, from now is its number one enemy of tattoos – Destroyer of pigment, color fader winner of course, once all things. Ironically, yet secure. You want nothing more than your friends to see your new tattoo. Hell, for foreigners to see too. But tattoo projections, it is better to leave the Great Indoors no matter what the beach looks like Spring Break.
He is accustomed to the sun has an effect on the skin. Reply radiation from the sun, it gets darker. You get a tan. It happens to all skin types, from white to black and everything else. The pigment is melanin and is produced by melanocytes in the epidermis. In the skin dark, melanin is a constant state of production. However, melanin is not produced in response to any radiation, specifically the fight against lightning ultraviolet (UV). The skin produces melanin in response to UV light as a protective mechanism for melanin can absorb UV radiation and protect other cells from UV damage. It's good and right. But consider how darker skin affects the appearance of your tattoo. To see your tattoo, remember, you're looking through of the epidermis. The darker the window on the appearance of the tattoo.
Tattoos fade like other colors that are under the sunlight. The technical term is photodegradation. In the instant that you left on the dashboard for months or stickers on the red heart that says: "I Symbol Heart  pain "or whatever you want, all the pigments fade when exposed to sunlight. The CV and visible sunlight contribute to the fading process, but that means old UV is also the source of a large number of skin problems. When it comes to color, solar radiation strikes the chemical bonds that absorb light. The pigments absorb light in the course of their normal function. When looking for a red heart, the reason to see the color red because blue and yellow are absorbed and only the red reflector. All pigments work this way, including those used for tattoos. They absorb some colors while reflecting others. When links chemicals at the molecular level breaking the bad UV (which absorb, to their detriment), lose their ability to absorb and reflect different colors. Less red is reflected and the fight against yellow, possibly, more blue, which was absorbed. What we see in the final product is less intense red. Since tattoos are usually dark colored (black contours just like a beginning), are clearly not absorb more light (because they do not reflect this is why black clothing in the summer sun to feel much hotter than white). If you want to preserve color, then save it in the dark, like the murals in the tombs of the pharaohs.
Tattoos fade battle another mechanism well, because they are immersed in a living organism, also known as our skin. We know that if the tattoo pigment has not penetrated into the dermis and in turn, has mainly been in the skin, the tattoo seems to fade as the shedding of skin off and is systematically younger. The process of formation of new skin cells that grow into upward from its bottom to top of the epidermis where they fell, carrying pigment of the tattoo right to them, some 35-45 days. Literally, not lost a tattoo on himself. This is a minor, as it has never reaches the dermis. Even the pigment reaches the dermis, however, there are still some obstacles to the pigment overcome.Until tattoo has taken up residence in the middle of dermal fibroblasts (a type of fiber cells that comprise the connective tissue), your body will be treated as a body stranger who is trying to catch escort. The immune system tries to engulf the pigment molecule with a type of white blood cells, the most important is a macrophage. Sometimes the pigment molecule UST too, but (the size does not count), so that the immune system may try to divide it into smaller parts by dissolving i tattoo pigment is usually not dissolve, but nevertheless, over time, your immune system to capture what can happen later in the lymphatic system.
If you have been tattooed, the nearest lymph nodes likely to perform your tattoo the tattoo pigment. After all is said and done, however, the immune system takes only a small percentage and the rest is captured in the fibroblasts.
What are the colors fade faster? Depends in particular on the molecular makeup of pigments used. Some of the chemical bonds are less stable than others. We have seen that the ingredients of pigment Tattoo are largely unknown and, if known, their composition is sometimes like a secret place. Tattoos The overwhelming anecdotal evidence, however, is that the red seems fade soon. The tattoos that are twenty to fifty years old, sometimes the red is completely gone.
The best defense in the game of the skin is not necessarily a good offense. The best defense in the battle of the fading tattoo is to fight the number one enemy of tattoos, the sun, for the leak. The simplest and most effective way to do this is to cover tattoos with clothing. A tattoo that is done well, first, completely healed from light can remain strong for many decades. Ironically, of course, is why many people get tattoos. They come to see him. So if you have to show then show inside. If you have to show, they do so in the winter on a cloudy day. If you have to show it off in the summer, held in the morning or at dusk. And if you show outdoors at all, use sunscreen, always, always, always, even on cloudy winter.
Sunblock and sunscreen are not created equal. A guard chemical absorbs solar UV radiation, not unlike the natural melanin in the skin, trying to avoid as many rays reaching your skin as possible. Guards lots are generally transparent after they have been deleted in. A sunhlock physically blocks the sun from hitting your skin. You are probably familiar with the treatment the nose and the rescue white mist competitors. These are examples of sunscreens, zinc oxide probably white. However, sunscreens are not necessarily need to look like makeup geisha. "Now they are available in a form of microspheres which is also transparent. The American Cancer Society recommends sunscreen or sunscreen SPF rating of at least 15 to protect your skin against harmful UV rays. When applied properly is also essential as you will use: apply twenty minutes before the sun, twenty minutes later (this is the second layer of paint that the fine points), and then every two hours. As a reminder, the tattoo is Dennis while in your cells that create tanning and natural skin color to stay on your skin. This means that your tattoo is your protection against sunburn In solar. That which is good for your skin is good for your tattoo. Nor is maintenance-free if the right deal.
Stretch and shrink
Tattoos shrink and expand, but only within certain limits. Moderate weight gain or loss will be incremental little tattoo, except to stretch and shrink accordingly. Think of birthday balloons are inflated a bit inflated. You always read "Happy Birthday" quite easily and the letters to keep their spacing and family composition. However, other types of rapid weight gain or loss may be something else. For example, women who are thinking having children may want to think twice before putting a tattoo abdomen. Similarly, men who have decided to seriously weight may want to rethink your upper sleeve. Stretch Marks (Often associated with pregnancy, but can reach all women and men) may also appear on arms, thighs and buttocks and even the hips and lower back.
Tattoos will be blurred for some reason the same fade. Since chemical bonds are broken and molecules begin to decompose as a result of exposure to sunlight, the body's immune system, always on the lookout, trying to take small molecules. In addition, tattoos on body parts that extend continuously (elbows, knees, ankles, feet and hands up) also more easily blur over time, for all builders who have discussed earlier. Tattoos done in the skin that has been damaged by overexposure in the sun, it also appears more sensitive to the confusion, skin less able to maintain the ink in place.
Ch-ch ch – changes
Tattoos change over time, but some simple steps and common sense can mitigate the undesirable changes, or even prevent them altogether. Tattoo artists are reluctant to give a number on how long it will last a tattoo (which is essentially forever) or how time will be wonderful (which is so variable there is no right answer). How does a tattoo on time is so dependent on its initial quality, the period of healing, maintenance, and changes in the skin of people who are impossible to predict. Even a well-executed, the simple word and academics, for example, placed on the fingers and not covered by the sun, could begin to fade and disappear in its first summer, especially In view of the stretching of the skin in the joints. The letters exactly the same, however, the back of the shoulder heals, it never saw the light of day, and never suffered an excessive expansion or contraction, could remain almost as clear and readable in its second decade as it did in its second week.
Lastly, even if, indeed, as skin ages naturally, the eyes of our changes tattoos. Old age spots and wrinkles are wreaking havoc on the clarity and color of our primitive tattoos. Given time, even the darkest lines and inevitably softens greatly bolder blur minutes. The lines seem to be more than a little thicker, seem narrow the differences between them, sometimes to disappear. Shading was once brilliant and solid becomes a bit less immediate and vibrant. Pigment moves imperceptibly over time cellular level and elasticity and resistance of our skin decreases. For these changes come just in time, we can not escape, our skin, our tattoos, or us. On the contrary, our attitude toward process the charge and determine if we see an aging tattoo so attractive or not.
