What is tattoo? It is a type of body decoration made by injection of colourants with use of special needle, under the skin. Unfortunately, it is connected with the pain, redness and irritations. People with low resistance to pain should avoid tattoos on those parts of the body which are particularly well supplied with blood or delicate and thin (eyelids, skin behind the ear as well as area near the ribs, elbows, knees, calves and lower part of the back). You can take a friend or someone close to you with you for support.
Plan tattoo on spring or autumn, i.e. when sun is not that intense. Exposure of tattoo to sun radiation can result with fading of colourant. For this reason, very important is proper care of both new and old tattoos. Fresh tattoo shouldn’t be touched with dirty hands, or rubbed with a towel and you should avoid tight clothes. To clean area of a tattoo, use water or antibacterial soap; then apply antibacterial cream. Extremely significant is to remember about regular change of dressing.
