How do I take care of a new tattoo?

Answer

Tattoos are puncture wounds on the skin. The tattoo site will be red and irritated after the procedure. It might burn and ache. It may even bleed and ooze and scabs may form on the small puncture wounds. Treat it as you would any wound. Keep it clean and dry. Disinfect the site with an iodine solution after you take a bath or shower until it heals. If it oozes pus or becomes swollen, consult a doctor.

Evidence from ancient Egypt, Greenland, Siberia, and New Zealand shows how truly global the tattooer's art is — and how old. In fact, tattooing had existed for thousands of years before England's Captain Cook encountered it in the South Pacific in 1769.
