So you've joined the scores of people getting a tattoo for the first time. Remember that a tattoo is actually an open wound, so you won't be walking out from a session with the tattoo artist sporting an awesome finished product, not yet anyway. It takes on average 7 to 10 days for your tattoo to heal, so you need to take care of it in the meantime.

Leave at least 4 to 6 hours before removing the bandage, then clean gently with mild, non-abrasive soap and water. Once it's clean don't re-bandage the area, just moisturise a little 2 or 3 times a day with something recommended by your tattoo artist. You don't want to over-moisturise because this can cause a loss of colour to your tattoo and slow down the healing process. Wear loose-fitting clothes or leave skin exposed to the air to facilitate healing. Keep it clean so it can heal without getting infected.

Follow any instructions your tattoo artist has given you as they should have the best advice on a tattoo in a particular area.
