Healing a New Tattoo


Recommended Posts

I just got my first tattoo yesterday and have one part of the healing process that I am a bit confused about.  After getting my tattoo I asked the artist if I should make sure to not let the tattoo get hit directly by the shower head.  I was surprised when he told me that he did want me to let it take water directly from the shower head and asked him a second time just to make sure I heard him correctly because I was surprised by his answer.

He works at a VERY reputable shop but I will not be naming the shop since I am questioning his advice.  So far I've taken two showers since getting the tattoo and  it looks like it is healing great and on the quick side.

Should I continue to let the water hit it directly or should I discontinue that?
