Healthy skin goes a long way when getting a new tattoo. Not only does it help the artist laying down the ink, but it also helps with tattoo post-recovery. And there are 7 tips that we would like to share so that you are prepared and confident that your skin canvas is ready for some new ink.
1. Skin exfoliating
2. Daily skin nourishment
3. Daily skin moisturizing
4. Regular shaving
5. Daily hydration
6. Good nutrition
7. Sun protection
While showering, exfoliate your skin with a loofah pad, brush sponge, or glove. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells from the outer skin layer (epidermis) and stimulates circulation. Exfoliating also increases better absorption of Inked Ritual Serum.
Apply Inked Ritual Anti-Fade Tattoo serum 1-2 times daily after showering. Not only does Inked Ritual stop tattoo fading, but it also prepares your skin for some new ink. Inked Ritual's active ingredients nourish, rejuvenate, and hydrate your skin, deep within the skin's dermis. This will ensure your skin is healthy and ready for fresh ink.
Inked Ritualis not a typical moisturizer, like all other tattoo care products. Inked Ritualis a superior hydrating serum, that pulls moisture deep into your skin. Whereas moisturizers are thick and leave a film on the surface of your skin, to seal and lock in the body moisture.
If you have dry skin, you can layer Inked Ritualby applying your favorite moisturizer on top. This could be a store-bought moisturizer, or any tattoo care balm, butter, cream, lotion, or oil. Also, applying a moisturizer can help lock-in Inked Ritual's active ingredients. (optional)
If you do choose to use moisturizers on your skin, do not apply them on the day of the tattoo session. Since they leave a film on your skin, this may affect the tattoo process for the artist.
Begin a regular shaving schedule of 2-3 times weekly on the new area where you plan to get a new tattoo. If you've never shaved this area before, go slow to avoid any nicks or irritation.
Regular shaving helps acclimatize your skin to heal faster after each shave. If your skin gets too irritated from shaving, then leave it till the day of the tattoo session, or let your tattoo artist do it for you when you get to your appointment.
Staying hydrated is super important for your health, skin, and tattoos. Dehydration increases skin agingand accelerates tattoo fading. Our bodies are comprised of 60% water and more than 70% of people are regularly dehydrated.
Start to increase your daily water intake to at least eight 8oz glasses of water a day. Also, cut back on caffeine and alcohol consumption, as they both increase dehydration. Inked Ritual's hyaluronic acid also provides external hydration, by pulling moisture deep into your skin.
Have you heard the saying ‘you are what you eat’? This could not be further from the truth. Your skin regenerates itself approximately every 28 days.
Eating good clean foods 3-4 weeks out from your tattoo session will help ensure your skin is healthy and ready to be inked. During these weeks, cut out all sugars, processed junk, and fast foods. Also, watch your salt intake as this can increase dehydration.
Good nutrition is not only good for your skin but extremely important for your immune system. Getting tattooed causes trauma to your skin, which stresses your immune system, and poor nutrition weakens your immune system. This is not good for your skin, and or your tattoos post-recovery.
So, try to maintain some clean eating at least four weeks after your tattoo session for healthy skin and the best recovery.
Now here's a tip to boost your immune system. Increase your daily intake of Vitamins A, B, C, E, D, magnesium, and zinc. These are some great immune system enhancers.
Always protect your tattoos from the sun, with clothing, or a 30+ SPF rated sunscreen. This is critical in protecting your tattoos. But also important for protecting your skinbefore getting inked.
The sun damages and dries out your skin, which accelerates tattoo fading. And before getting a new tattoo, sunburned skin is something you'll want to avoid at all costs before getting inked.
Also, after a day in the sun, apply Inked Ritualagain for extra nourishment and hydration.
So before getting your next tattoo, or even if it's your first tattoo, follow these 7 tattoo skin preparation tips. Getting inked on super healthy skin makes the world of a difference in keeping your tattoos bold and vibrant!
