Two days in a row same tattoo - seeking advice.

Recommended Posts

I got tattooed today on my knee and am going back into the same tattoo tomorrow with perhaps a bit of overlap.

I'm thinking I should wash, ointment, and rewrap a couple times, and come into the appointment wrapped, so that the tattoo doesn't start dry out and seal up.

Any advice on this?

When I'm doing two days back to back I unwrap and shower at the end of the day... The rewrap overnight... Shower in the morning to get rid of the blood / plasma and then wrap again before heading to the studio.

Personally I don't bother with ointments / barrier creams if I'm going to be wrapping.

For me it's partly about the tattoo and mainly about not leaving massive bio leakage on the hotel bed sheets...

Keep it clean and wrapped and you're good. Those back to back appointments can be rough! Ibuprofen helps keep the swelling in check. Good luck and let's see pics!

Thanks guys. I changed my game plan and decided to remove the wrap and not re-wrap, because I can't stand having plastic on my body. Plus there is very little to no blending between today and yesterday.
