Care about tattoos
First and foremost: "we must always bear in mind that a tattoo is an open wound in our body" and as such, can fall prey to any organism from the environment that we cause an infection and this, however small it was, could reach affect the final result.
It is known within the world of tattoo that their bodies and immune systems vary so that what may be a good method of healing for some customers, can create disruptions in others.
Despite this could be a kind of compendium on basic care of the tattoo, taking into account aspects such as primary health and wetting it.
What is most important in preventing infections, we must ensure good sanitation in the area but in no way should make it unduly.
What is more advisable to wash the site with a neutral pH soap designed specifically for this purpose. The same must be stored carefully in a toilet or wrapped in a plastic-film adherent to be kept away from microorganisms or external actors, which could affect their safety.
It is preferable to rub the pad of clean hands with soap and warm water, so that it is dissolved, and then massaging the tattooed area to remove all the excess ink and solvents that removing the body ha ido.
Once this step we wound dry, or gently pat with a napkin or with a disposable towel to which we have not used before. Never must be done so sharp or rubbing.
This process must repeat two to four times per day since, unless we remove it from disinfecting the wound and more, could cause scab-cascarita was too soft.
The fact that tattooing should stay hydrated is because in this way avoid the crust will harden dragging ink particles that should remain under some layers of skin, during his detachment. This can produce unpleasant voids of color in the drawing. Therefore it is vital to obtain optimum results.
Until a few years ago we used to recommend the tattooists use Vaseline to keep the solid hydrated area which, some artists argue today, is "the best method."
We must not forget that this product is extracted as petroleum and its frequent use on the dermis has brought in more than one occasion, allergic reactions such as rash, redness and itching (although these symptoms are removed after a few days abandon the product).
Another possible hydrating agent consists of the usual tan creams for skin. As long as they are pH neutral or do not possess any kind of perfume or alcohol. Among them could highlight the Nivea has always taken a very good result.
From this point we can release a variant that is being used today in much the tattoo studios in the end recommend a method of healing ", which is the use of ointments or creams that possess some sort of antibiotic. Thus the agency receives an aid to effectuate and accelerate the wound healed. We must consider that the use of these ointments presents some risks such as allergies or on-suppuration.
In the event of an allergy may be due to any of the components of the ointment is not well accepted by our body. In this case it is advisable to leave this ointment and resort to other safer as the aforementioned creams are moisturizers.
In all cases the ointment should be applied every time you wash the wound or on every occasion that is seen too dry skin, itching or tense. The latter are normal healing except, as we have seen before, when the eastern red or yellow.
The over-exposure to the ointment can become a suppuration abnormal skin softening of the crust-cascarita with the consequent loss of dye.
Method of Venda:
FILM adherence to when the bandage wound. Its advantages lie in that:
1 .- Being a plastic raincoat, is not filtered dust or other infectious agent.
2 .- not seen any substance or sticks to the wound.
3 .- It keeps the skin moist for a longer period of time and not allowed to filter the air and, hence, not dry wound.
4 .- By not drying the wound, there is no more than a slight crust layer of skin which fails to drag the pigment to the surface so the result is usually optimal.
5 .- The healing process usually lasts between four to six days in opposition to the rest of the treatments that usually takes between seven and fifteen. Simply contraindications to the heat that gives the wound, which tends to be higher than normal. This involves, in some cases, skin irritations and rashes but only up often in summer or some people working in kitchens, boilers or sites of high temperatures.
Once the tattoo session was previously applied the tattoo venda a thin layer of petroleum jelly or antibiotic ointment. It is necessary to seal the venda with some kind of tape so as not to drain the air or run the bandage.
After about two or three hours the bandage was removed, washed the wound and apply another thin layer of ointment with a gentle massage. Then again with plastic wrap and repeat the process every six or eight hours for three or four days, depending on the particulars of the tattooists.
As is left to use the venda need for further washing and wetting the area with the traditional method specified by the artist until they show a thin layer of skin.
Not everything ends when the tattooists off the machine, a view in a mirror how it has been drawing on your skin and you put the bandage. The process of tattooing continues at home with a responsible and to care beyond their complete healing. This affects the visual quality of the same in the present and future.
