FoilLet's start with the foil. After tattooing a thin film is applied to protect the fresh tattoo. This should be worn for about 6 hours and in the best case also through the first night, before it is renewed. It prevents dehydration and crusting caused by the lymph fluid.
The Next DayBefore renewing the film the next day, the tattoo must first be thoroughly cleaned with hot water. This is the only way to make the pores open properly so that the wound can be cleansed of blood, ink and lymph fluid, without leaving any residue. It is quite normal that the tattoo bleeds and settles on a superficial wound fluid. Even if it looks like this: the tattoo does not lose any color.
CreamingIn the next 2-3 weeks the tattoo should be creamed twice a day. If you apply the cream too thickly, it could clog the pores and consecutively the wound healing process is additionally hindered. Before applying the cream you should wash the tattoo thoroughly and let it air dry for about 30 minutes. If necessary, dry the skin with a Zewa paper towel, but never use a towel. If you are traveling during the first healing days, skip the cream and wear a foil instead. In this way you protect the tattoo from foreign bodies. The general rule is: either cream or foil – they should never be applied together, otherwise the skin can not breathe.
SunAnyone who has not already understood that there are healthier things for the skin rather than to lie down under a sunbed should give up the tanning for at least six weeks after tattooing at least. By the way, the "real" sun is not exactly harmless either: tattoos like to fade out under direct sunlight. Furthermore, natural skin protection is lost a bit by tattooing it, which makes the sun a lot more dangerous. Also, covering with a towel does not help: a towel does not protect against UV radiations! Given that, tattooed skin should definitely be given special consideration as far as the sunscreen is concerned.
There are a handful of products that are suitable for tattoo after care. Panthenol cream by Ratiopharm from the pharmacy is recommended. Bepanthen is also often used, but it should be discouraged as many people are allergic to it.
