What is a Tattooing?
A tattoo is a kind of body modification where a design is made by injecting ink, dyes and pigments, either permanent or temporary, into the dermis layer of the skin to change the pigment. The art of making tattoos is tattooing. Tattoos mainly fall into three broad classes: purely decorative (with no specific meaning); symbolic (with a specific meaning pertinent to the wearer); pictorial (a depiction of a specific person or item).
Our tattoos are artistically rich and philosophically unmatched in its design, patterns and shapes. A tattoo can define a human being and all that lies within him; all his dreams and hopes and all his fears and doubts. And it becomes a part of who we are and who we aspire to be, constantly reminding us of the path that we have all chosen out of our free will and code of honour.
The process involved
Before beginning the tattoo process, the skin is sterilized. The equipment used should also be sterilized. Hair is also shaved off if the area if hairy to make the procedure smooth and easy.
Our tattoo artist will then place an outline of the picture on your skin using special papers and inks that work like temporary tattoos. This way you can check it before any permanent work is done.
Then the actual process of tattooing will begin. This can be done manually by puncturing the skin with a needle then injecting the colour pigments. However, nowadays machines are the preferred option. With tattoo machines, tiny needles are used to place the ink just below the skin’s surface while the tattoo artist guides the machine. The area is then sterilized and wrapped.
Proper aftercare is very vital to ensure your canvas matures perfectly. Tattoo aftercare is as important as getting your tattoo done with the best of the standards of practice. To answer some questions that may often cross your mind, we have compiled a series of points below to make sure your art stays perfect while you heal.
Leave That Wrap Alone!
Your artist took the care to cover up your new tattoo for a very good reason – to keep air-borne bacteria from invading your wound. Yes, as pretty as your new tattoo is, it is still a wound. Open flesh is a breeding ground for bacteria and infection. Leave the bandage on for a minimum of two hours or as suggested by your artist. Excitement of having a new tattoo will make you want to remove the bandage so you can show your friends, but your friends will just have to wait until later.
Wash and Treat
After you remove the bandage, you will want to wash your tattoo. Use lukewarm water and mild, liquid antibacterial or antimicrobial soap to gently wash away any ointment, blood and/or plasma and to completely clean the area. Do not use a washcloth or anything abrasive. Your hand is your best tool, in this case. (If your tattoo feels slimy and slippery, you have probably been oozing plasma. Try to gently remove as much of this as possible – when the plasma dries on the skin surface, it creates scabs.) Then pat (do not rub) the area firmly with a CLEAN towel or paper towel to get it completely dry. Follow with a very light application ointment as suggested by your artist.
Specialty Products and Lotions
If you prefer, you can also use a specialty product such as Tat Wax, Tattoo Goo or H2Ocean. It’s not necessary, as many over the counter products work just fine, but it’s your choice. Use the products intermittently (approx. 2 — 3 times a day) until tattoo completely peels off. After that, continue to keep it clean, but you can use lotion when needed instead of ointment, to keep the skin soft. Whatever lotion you use, it should be dye and fragrance free.
Bathing, Showering, Hot Tubs, and Swimming
Yes, you can (and should!) shower with a new tattoo. It’s OK to get your tattoo wet – just don’t soak it. Submerging your tattoo in a bath or hot tub can cause serious damage, so you’ll want to avoid those for 2-3 weeks. but showering is perfectly fine as long as you don’t saturate your tattoo. If you get soap or shampoo on your tattoo, just remove it quickly with water. Swimming – whether it is a pool, fresh water or salt water – should be avoided for at least 3 weeks.
Scabbing and Peeling
After a few days, you will notice some peeling and possibly a scabbing. Scabbing is normal and there is no need to panic. Scabs will eventually come off on their own. (Do not apply ointment or lotion to a softened scab – wait for it to dry) You will also start to itch, just like sunburn when it begins to heal. The advice here is, don’t pick, and don’t scratch! If the skin itches, slap it. If it is peeling, put lotion on it. And if it is scabbing, just leave it alone. Your tattoo is almost healed, and now is not the time to ruin it!
Protection from the sun
Try not to expose your newly done tattoo to sun at all at least for 10 days. After your tattoo is healed, from now on, you will always want to protect it from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. These can fade and damage a brilliant tattoo very fast. Before spending a lot of time in excessive heat, protect your tattoo with a minimum 30SPF sun block. This will keep your tattoo vibrant for many years, and it will continue to be a source of great pride.

Microblading is a procedure categorized under permanent makeup, but unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive and is considered semi-permanent. Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type and skincare routine. The procedure is done by using a hand tool with ultra fine needles and each 'hair' is gently etched into the skin, giving an incredibly natural and realistic look. Microblading can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrow and is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrows, thinning brows from age or over tweezed brows. Pigments used are chosen to match the natural or desired brow color and skin tone will also be taken into consideration.
