After a person gets a tattoo, there will be a period of healing. Many people don’t know when their tattoo has fully healed, or how long it may take. Everyone’s recovery time is different, depending not only on their physical condition, but also on the size of the tattoo, the amount of detail, and even the colors used!

There are indeed ways to tell if a tattoo has fully healed, and with our carefully crafted selection of products, the entire process can be made safer and easier.

Use the right products to aid the healing process

Most professional tattoo artists will agree that one of the most critical steps in the tattoo process is the healing and aftercare phase. Careful application can be permanently ruined by improper aftercare. With our tattoo kits, you’ll make it easy to successfully navigate the healing process. The unique three-step system includes cleansing, preserving and moisturizing balms that are gentle on the skin, ensuring your tattoo will stay bright and beautiful for years to come.

Patience is the key to complete tattoo healing

All good things take time, and tattoos are no exception. Even with our treatment balm, it is generally recommended to allow six weeks for your tattoo to heal. If a person has a specific skin or medical condition, healing may take longer. Tattoos may continue to peel for up to 2 months, so if you start to see a little bit of skin peeling off, remember that this is probably normal. It’s important to remember that even if your tattoo has healed on the surface, there may still be healing required underneath the skin.

Flaking during healing

Even with proper care, a tattoo will continue to heal and may peel or shed white flakes of skin, similar to what happens after a sunburn. Exfoliation is damaged skin that is falling off. In this case, the tattoo’s ink penetrates into the lower layers of the skin, making it permanent. If a person sees scabs on a tattoo, this does not mean that it has completely healed. Scabs should not be removed as they may interfere with the healing process.

Will there be ongoing pain while the tattoo is healing?

If the tattoo is still painful, this is a good indication that the tattoo has not fully healed. If a person is still experiencing pain, this is a sign that the skin, or even the nerves under the skin, have not yet healed and are still in process. Even if your tattoo doesn’t hurt indoors, it may hurt when exposed to the sun. If your tattoo is still painful after more than 6 weeks, it may be time to have it professionally checked.

About secretions

If your tattoo is bleeding, it hasn’t healed yet. If a tattoo bleeds for more than 48 hours, a person should see a doctor to get it checked out. If there is no discharge from the tattoo, you can apply ointment.

These are some of the ways one can tell if a tattoo is healing. Everyone’s healing process is different, so it’s important to give your skin enough time to heal properly and to use the appropriate ointments and care products on your tattoo. By using products from the Tattoo Anesthetic Cream range, you can ensure optimal healing during your tattoo process.
