Tattoos!

Postby matty_kissarmy » Sat Nov 02, 2013 3:53 pm

Probably a random thing to put on here but I got more kiss tattoos on my lower arm yesterday, and my tattoo artist tells me just to clean it 3 times a day and don't use any lotion at all until all the scabIng is over and has all fell off, but now I have people telling me it is ridiculous not to moisturise a tattoo, so I am stuck on what to do, any advice or experiences?

def dont just wash it, it will dry out and scab up terrible and when the scabe come off they will take some of the colour off with them, wash it 3 times a day and apply bepanthem, its a baby nappy cream but works amazingly well on tattoos

i normally wash it in the morning pat it dry then apply the cream,do it again in the day at 4-5pm ish then again before bed, all the times i have used this i have never had a tattoo scab up at all, last thing you want to do is let it dry out

For my last tattoo, I washed it in warm water, then went with a tattoo aftercare cream, kept applying it was often as I could. Never had a moments bother with it.

Bepanthen (sic?) Nappy Rash Cream is the best stuff to use.
Wash with soap at least twice a day and pat dry, then gently apply the cream.
I wore an old shirt while the cream was on - I got a nice Turin Shroud style Paul Stanley on my sofa once....

Trust me - this stuff is the bomb for tatts!

Ha ha, the hotel I was staying at in Devon a couple of months ago had a reversed KISS logo on its pillows :wink:

But yes, I agree about Bepanthen, used twice a day and didn't get any scabs at all.

You need to upload your pictures to an image hosting site (Photobucket etc). Then copy the img link into a new post.
