Want a healthy and healed tattoo? Follow these easy steps!

Beyond researching tattoo styles and finding a suitable artist, the most valuable piece of advice we can give our audience at INKED is to take care of your tattoos. And as you likely already know, the most important time to take care of your ink is when they are still healing. Many people do not realize that plenty of things can go wrong during the healing process, which means we need to be extra careful with our sensitive skin.

Then if you have a different aftercare routine or we missed one of your go-to steps—feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section on Facebook. For now, let's talk tattoo care!
