A New Zealander living in London for the past 12 years with designs of return home once I've made my first million (not any time soon then).
I've got one big tattoo and 2 small , I did the big one last year, I had no problem, and my Pso didn't attack it at all.... how is that happening?
Keeping your hands clean is as important as keeping your tattoo clean, because your hands can introduce bacteria to your tattoo very easily. Make sure to wash your new tattoo several times a day with a soft, non-scented, antibacterial soap to keep it clean and avoid potential infection. Remember, never touch your tattoo unless you have just washed your hands!
Don't Scratch It, It will probably itch throughout this time, do not scratch!
I applied a moisturizer on my new tattoo several times per day for the first week or you can do that until it heals.
