Your tattoo artist will begin regular maintenance once their work is done. After all, this is their masterpiece and they want to preserve its beauty. You may apply a thin layer of petroleum-based ointment to your ink, then cover it with plastic wrap or a bandage.
Even if you might want to see (or slide your finger up) your newcomer, resist the urge. Tattoos are open wounds. So, by keeping it covered and applying moisturizers on time, you can prevent bacteria from entering your skin. For more information about moisturizers for tattoos, you can explore this link.

After 2-3 days of applying the ink, you can continue to apply another brand of regular moisturizer. The most important point is that the product you choose for your tattoo should be odorless and not contain any additives.
Keep your tattoo well hydrated while caring for it with a good fragrance-free moisturizer. Apply 1-2 times a day or only when the skin/tattoo is dry, which may vary depending on skin type, size, and location of the tattoo.
It is very easy. Anything good for your skin – a nutritious diet, drinking plenty of water, and paying attention to the sun – will also benefit your tattoo. You need to understand that tattoos also ages when you age and proper aftercare will only decide the future and shelf life of your tattoo.
