LOVE your Tattoo!!!

Happy February, Valentine ~ *Blush*

Ahhh, the Euphoria of bringing home a stunning tattoo...

Given: Your very personal, chosen adornment will grow with you for many, many years to come... Right away, Tattoo Aftercare requires a nonchalant aspect of TLC (Yes, Tender Loving Care). Love at first sight can cloud your judgement... reel back from the potentially clumsy and akward self that may smother or obsess over the giddy new romance of your perfectly beautiful new tattoo.

Be COOL :) Be Gentle, Be Mindful and Considerate. Like a prefect date with someone you really admire, keep your Paws OFF!! Mind your presonal hygene and think before you make a move :)

Respect that your body has just experienced a rather magical transformation, and use patience to get to the next stage of your realtionship.

Tattooers and Clients will agree and disagree on many points of Aftercare, every-body is truly unique from skin to artists technique, so each heal will often be authentic.

Hopefully this Aftercare Advice will aid in a perfect union between you and your new permanent art installation... and keep that radiant doe-eyed honeymoon glow until you renew your vows to experience your next tattoo... 

XO, Dolce Amore~
