Taking Care of your Tattoo

One thing that is ask constantly is how to take care of your new Tattoo. This is a question that is often ask and usually has many different answers depending on who you ask. One thing is for sure is that you should listen to your Tattooist every time.

One thig to remember is always use a non Petroleum after care product for your Tattoo. Keep it out of the sun and make sure it heals correctly. A good way to achieve this is by using Tattoo Goo after care product.

How to take care of your Ink, even if this is not your first Tattoo.

If it is your first Tattoo an artist tells you the care that your Tattoo should be getting. Remember this is to some extent an open sore until it heals. So I figured I would cover her questions because I feel this is something you should ask your Artist every time you get a Tattoo. Why you ask, well things change. Not only do we find new advances in the Tattoo world but almost too often we forget the basics. Another reason is if you’re not going to the same artist you might get different ways to protect your tattoo. Always remember to ask the following basic questions if your Tattoo artist fails to inform you of the care for your new investment.

Should we re-wrap it every time we shower or go in the pool, etc, to keep it protected or are showers a good way to keep it rinsed and clean?

Remember I am not an expert but these questions and more are answered on my “Caring for a new tattoo” page. Be sure to ask your Tattoo Artist first before following any other advice.

This blog post will be followed up with a photo and short video of Eve Batelle’s Tattoo.

Parents Tattoo Kids with home made needle.

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

 Ha this is a good one. The mother sees nothing wrong with this. WOW, really first lets just go with the fact the kids are all underage have no idea what they really want and what the do want. Second you used the same “Home Made” Tattoo gun on the kids. This is crazy.

Here is my rant on this.

You take kids that are under age, and look to you for guidance and care and give them all Tattoos. Instead of telling your kids I think you should wait on something like this so you get something meaningful and worth getting she lets them get one. Second she don’t take them to a professional, she gives them the tattoo with a home-made gun. Both parties are at fault here. From the Video itself, it is unclear if the man is married to the woman or not,but I am not sure why they didn’t focus on the boyfriend. It could be because the female did the tattoos herself. The mother of the man in question reported them and I applaud her. Remember anyone can have a baby, but responsible people are called parents.

The kids range from 10 -17. Although a 17-year-old might be able to decide on a design, you should still take them to a professional. Personally I would still tell a 17-year-old to wait, check out some designs and then go to a professional. The lines on the lady’s Tattoos in my opinion are really not done all that well. Most people would see this type of flaw and really want to take a look at a true tattoo artist.

Now lets look at the health concerns. Looking at the video the set up looks pretty nasty to me. But on top of that she uses the same needle on all three kids. When done did you even bother to tell your kids how to take care of the new tattoo itself? Questions like this should be ask during the trial of both the man and woman.

So that is my rant, What do you think. My favorite part is when she said “I don’t think it’s that big of a deal” like getting a tattoo is an everyday thing.
