A tattoo is more than body jewelry, because the artwork on the skin allows you to express your own personality. But after the piercing, a conscientious and careful tattoo aftercare is required to ensure optimal wound healing and long-lasting color intensity.
We have specialized in treating all important aspects of tattoo care after the tattoo is done, so that your motifs remain in good condition and you can enjoy your tattoos for a long time.
Why is it so important to take care of a tattoo?
Regular skin care is of crucial importance in tattoo aftercare. In order to call your own a complication-free and permanently beautiful tattoo, the "tattoo care after" should be perfectly tailored to the needs of tattooed skin.
After the piercing, the skin is particularly sensitive and susceptible to inflammation and infections, which can not only extremely affect the appearance of your tattoo, but in the worst case also endanger your health.
With appropriate tattoo aftercare using high-quality products, you can promote the healing of your tattoo and preserve the color brilliance of the tattoo design for a long time.
Avoiding sun exposure and friction is also very important. Correct tattoo care guarantees a beautiful and healthy result and lets your tattoo shine for a lifetime.
Tattoo care for fresh and older motifs
Depending on whether your tattoo has just been inked or whether the desired motif has been on your skin for some time, the care routine of the tattooed skin differs, of course:
- With a freshly inked tattoo, the focus is clearly on wound healing and defense against possible pathogens, in addition to the supply of nutrients. Because you definitely want to avoid infections in this sensitive phase!
Good and coordinated tattoo care can create an optimal wound healing climate for the tattooed skin. In this way, the healing of the wound is accelerated and skin regeneration is promoted.
- The aftercare of older tattoos requires different care than freshly engraved motifs. Preserving old tattoos is mainly about providing the skin with sufficient moisture and protecting it from environmental influences.
The use of UV protection is therefore of the utmost importance in order to keep the tattoo beautiful and colorful in the long term. A healthy and well-groomed skin also improves the luminosity of the colors and prevents an unsightly gray haze on black tattoos.
How do I care for my tattoo after tattooing?
Careful tattoo treatment is essential to give the skin the best possible support during regeneration and to avoid complications during the wound healing phase.
With the help of our experience in the pharmaceutical sector, we have developed the TattooMed Care Days: 1-2 products especially for this time.
- These are all CE-tested and approved as medical devices.
- They are perfect for protecting your fresh tattoo from germs.
- A drying out of the pricked skin is prevented because a moist wound climate is optimal for rapid cell renewal.
Also make sure to protect your fresh tattoo from the sun, because the freshly tattooed skin does not have any UV protection of its own at first.
When the healing phase is complete, you can apply a sunscreen to the skin
- to protect,
- to provide moisture
- and to let your tattoo colors shine for a long time.
The TattooMed sun products are your best ally against harmful UV radiation.
Long-term tattoo care: this is how it works
Once the first three weeks after the piercing are over and the tattoo has healed, many people tend to suddenly stop thinking about the daily skin care of the tattooed body parts. But this neglect affects the look of your body jewelry over time!
- pale colors,
- dull skin cells
- and a dry appearance is a sad sight to see in a tattoo!
For this reason, long-term moisturizing and regular sun protection are highly recommended.
The TattooMed Care Day: 21+ products are explicitly designed for the long-term care and daily protection of your tattoo.
And let's be honest: well-groomed skin is automatically beautiful and a well-done tattoo looks fantastic on beautiful skin! Therefore, a tattoo always benefits from a healthy complexion.
Tattoo care: How long do I have to use the cream?
With freshly tattooed skin, our TattooMed After Tattoo Creme will help you through the regeneration phase of the first 3 weeks. After you have removed the patch or film after the first 3 days, it is now a question of supporting cell renewal.
The TattooMed After Tattoo Cream acts like a moisture booster and optimally supplies your skin with all the nutrients it needs during the challenging healing phase.
The TattooMed Daily Tattoo Care is your faithful daily companion for already healed tattoos. Regardless of whether
- sun protection
- or color retention.
This cream is a real all-rounder that you should always have in your pocket or in the bathroom cabinet. The clever formulation absorbs quickly without being sticky or greasy. Oh yes, thanks to the valuable, nourishing ingredients, there is also soft skin.
How often do I need to use tattoo care products?
As a rule, from the third day and after cleaning the freshly inked tattoo, you should apply the care product in a thin layer to the affected area of skin 2-3 times a day.
Be careful not to apply too much cream, as this causes the skin to swell - which can have a negative effect on the color pigments that have been punctured. It is important to cream regularly and not to use too much product.
After the healing phase, you can use tattoo care that is applied to the skin once a day, for example after a shower. Daily sun protection is also recommended to protect the skin from strenuous UV radiation. If the sun is intense, you can apply cream several times.
Can tattoo care also be used on non-tattooed skin?
The answer is very simple: of course! Tattoo care products, especially those that moisturize and protect against sun damage, can easily be used for general skin care as well. Because it doesn't matter whether you use colored ink or “without it at all” – well-groomed skin is always a hit!
