Signs of a properly healing tattoo
Tattooed skin goes through a healing process, just as your skin takes time to heal after other types of wounds. You’ll likely experience:
pink or red skin at the site and surrounding area (not a widespread rash)
slight inflammation that doesn’t extend outside the tattoo
While peeling is a normal part of tattoo healing, there are signs that could indicate your new ink isn’t healing correctly. Keep an eye out for the following symptoms.
Excessive itchiness Discharge
If you notice any, see a healthcare provider. MORE INFO …
Wearing breathable clothes over it is fine as long as they are not causing friction. (Keeping tattoos wrapped in plastic or bandages will stop air from getting to the tattoo, slow healing, and make gross stuff grow in there.)
In a method known as tattoo dry healing, you don’t use any moisturizer as part of your aftercare routine. However, you do follow the other steps, such as avoiding the sun.
Supporters of dry healing believe that one benefit of avoiding moisturizers (which may contain artificial ingredients) is that it helps to eliminate the possibility of skin irritation or allergic reaction. A counterargument is that the lack of moisture leaves you vulnerable to itching.
Ask your tattoo artist whether dry healing may be right for you.
