How long does it take for a tattoo to heal?

The healing time for a tattoo can vary depending on several factors, including the size of the tattoo, its location on the body, and individual healing capabilities. Generally, it takes around 2-4 weeks for a tattoo to fully heal, but it may take longer for larger or more intricate designs.

What is the best way to clean a fresh tattoo?

Cleaning a fresh tattoo is crucial for proper healing. It's typically recommended to gently wash the tattooed area with mild, fragrance-free soap and clean, lukewarm water.

Avoid using harsh cleansers or excessive scrubbing. Pat the tattoo dry with a clean towel or paper towel and avoid rubbing it.

Of course, our Gentle Tattoo Soap or Beauty Enhancing Foaming Cleanser works great for this!

Should I apply any products to my healing tattoo?

Yes, applying a thin layer of recommended tattoo aftercare products can help moisturize and protect the healing tattoo.

Look for non-GMO, vegan, and natural products specifically designed for tattoo aftercare.

Avoid petroleum-based ointments or coconut oil and opt for products containing ingredients like shea butter, pumpkin seed butter, or aloe vera.

Our Step 2 - Tattoo Moisturizer fits the bill perfectly!

Can I expose my tattoo to sunlight or go swimming?

It is generally advised to avoid direct sunlight, tanning beds, and swimming pools during the healing process. Sun exposure can fade the tattoo, and swimming in pools, hot tubs, or natural bodies of water can expose the healing tattoo to bacteria, chemicals, or prolonged moisture, potentially leading to infections or complications.

When can I resume normal activities after getting a tattoo?

It's important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your tattoo artist.

While healing, you may need to avoid certain activities such as intense workouts, excessive sweating, or wearing tight clothing over the tattooed area.

Healing times may vary depending on size and location of tattoo, diligence of your aftercare routine, and your body's natural speed of healing in general. Your tattoo artist will guide you on when it's safe to resume regular activities based on the progress of your healing.

Can I use a different product?

Absolutely! However, it's important to read the ingredients. After the time and money you've invested into your tattoo, the last thing you want to do is jeopardize your epic artwork with an inferior product containing ingredients that can cause loss of ink or other complications.

White label products abound - generic products that are manufactured in bulk (and cheaply) overseas and relabeled with whatever branding the buyer wishes to use. These often have questionable safety and quality standards, both for ingredients as well as during production. 

We pride ourselves on using raw, natural ingredients sourced from reputable Canadian suppliers, and developing and producing in-house. Our products are uniquely ours and you won't find any quite like them.

Quality products made from quality ingredients, made by people who care about your ink? That's Ink Kare!
