Easy Aftercare for your new tattoo.....NUDETATU

How to keep your Scar Camouflage Tattoo clean

A tattoo can also be considered a medical procedure because the artist uses a needle to insert the ink underneath your skin. As a result, you leave yourself vulnerable to scarring and infections whenever you open the skin.

Caring for your tattoo can prevent those complications and ensure that the tattoo heals properly. We here at NUDETATU will apply a thin layer of antibiotic ointment over the tattoo before you leave. We will also give you Aftercare to use at home. The Aftercare will help prevent bacteria from getting into your skin and provide nutrients needed for faster healing. It also protects the tattoo from rubbing onto your clothes and getting irritated or dried out.

Tip #1 - Use Gentle Soap on your fresh scar camouflage tattoo

Your new tattoo is your baby. Take care of it by frequently washing with an unscented, antibacterial soap to avoid infection.

SPF is you new BFF

Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight if at all possible.

Tattoos can fade in the sun, even nude-colored ones– so when it's completely healed, make sure your tattoo is covered in sunscreen that offers broad-spectrum protection (UVA and UVB) with an SPF of 30 or higher and water resistance (If you are going to be in the water).
