Why should you consider getting a tiny tattoo at Feather Touch Studio in Knoxville!
Recently more and more celebrities started to get tiny tatts on their body. These Tiny Tattoos are designed to help you express yourself, but at the same time they are inconspicuous and people like how interesting and fun they really are. The best part about tiny tattoos is that they are visually distinctive. But they are still a part of your body once you put them there, so you really have to figure out whether you want to have such tattoos on you or not. Victoria from Feather Touch Studio in Knoxville has a few tips to share with us when it comes to small tattoos.
There are artists who won’t do small tattoos
That’s because they are specialized in larger-scale body art. And this type of smaller art pieces are not exactly up their alley. It’s important to check the artist portfolio and see whether they are specialized in tiny tattoos or not. Feather Touch studio in Knoxville specializes on tiny tattoos, in fact, the biggest tattoo that we do is 3 Inches big.)
Two similar tiny tattoos will never look the same
The reason for that is every tiny tattoo is different. There are lots of factors involved too. Your skin might have a different tone, texture and so on when compared to other people. So you can’t expect your tiny tattoo to be identical with others out there.
Some of them are very delicate
Depending on where you place these little tattoos, they need to be treated with extra care. Some of them might be on your veins or important parts of your body. Not to mention there are small tattoos that are very delicate and they need thicker lines to stand out.
Less care is always better
When it comes to tiny tattoos, less care is actually better than too much care. Your body will adapt to the tiny tattoos, so don’t overdo it. Let it deal with that and focus on your day to day life.
Tiny Tattoos are amazing and they help you stand out and make a great impression. But at the same time they don’t require you to cover your body in a full suit of body art. Which is why many celebrities love tiny tattoos. And you should get one too, because it makes you stand out, it boosts your confidence level and it’s a fun way to show off your ideas as well!
The initial stage of tattoo healing begins immediately after your tattooing session is finished. You should look at your tattoo as an open wound, and treat it accordingly. Your artist will gently wash the area and put a protective bandage on it to protect it from bacteria. You might need to change your piece of film depending on the intensity of weeping you are experiencing.
If your tattoo weeps severely in the first 24 hours, please Contact Feather Touch Studio and we will change it for you. Please do not try to remove the film on your own. Many people describe a fresh tattoo as feeling similar to a sunburn. The area tends to sting a bit, and it can look red and become a little raised or swollen. This is all a natural part of the tattoo healing process. Unlike other tattoo healing methods, the film that we use at Feather Touch Studio will make it so you don’t see scabbing. Attempt to keep the film on for 3-4 days, after that you can take it off.
PROCESS FOR REMOVING THE PROTECTIVE FILM:
The best way to remove the film is to find an edge of it, and then to pull it back over itself in the direction of hair growth. Pulling upward on the film can be painful, so we don’t recommend it. The best way to try removing the film in a warm shower. The warmth will loosen the adhesive, and make it easier to remove.)
Only use CLEAN HANDS to wash your tattoo. NO washcloths, bath towels, bath sponges or loofahs on a fresh tattoo.
Make a lather in your hand with soap and warm water
Gently clean tattoo using a circular motion, until all ointment, blood, and lymphatic fluid are removed
Rinse the tattoo and wash once again, gently, until the skin is clean
a hair dryer on the ‘cool’ setting may be used; a clean paper towel may also be used to dab the tattoo dry
After the film off comes the second stage of the healing process.
Wash your tattoo with warm water 2 times daily. Use a mild cleaner to wash the tattoo.DON’T use a washcloth, loofah, or any other abrasive material.
Rinse throughly, however DON’T soak the area. Keep shower time to a minimum. Pat dry with clean paper towels. DON’T use a towel or any other abrasive material. DON’T re-bandage. Once it’s off leave it off.
Make sure you continue taking care of it by applying a small amount of A+D vitamin 2-3 times a day for the next couple weeks. More isn’t better.
The following must be avoided during all 14 days after the procedure:
Stay away from water. Although you can easily take a shower with a protective film on, it is important to still monitor the time you spend in the shower. Prolonged exposure to water will weaken the adhesion, so avoid soaking. As with all tattoo aftercare regulations, you should avoid submerging your tattoo in any body of water. This includes baths, lakes, pools, hot tubs, or oceans.
Increased sweating. Be aware that sweating can weaken the adhesive of the film and cause the bandage to come off prematurely. That being the case, we advise you to take it easy and keep the sweating to a minimum!
Don't pick and pull at the flaking/scabbing skin. Picking away at your healing tattoo can delay healing, cause fading, and increase the chances of infection.
Letting Others Touch The Tattoo. Letting other people touch your brand new tattoo is an absolutely terrible idea. You have absolutely no idea where their hands have been since they last washed them, and having their dirty hands rub all over your new tattoo is just asking for an infection.
Stay away from the sun. Don't expose your new tattoo to intense sunlight and don't apply any sun lotion to the area until it has fully healed.
Continue to look after your tattoo once healed. Once healed, keep your tattoo well protected from the sun and ensure you continue to moisturize the area regularly. Healthy skin means a healthy-looking tattoo.
If you have any unexpected problems with the healing of the skin, please contact Feather Touch Studio immediately, to discuss further instructions. Contact a doctor immediately if any signs or symptoms develop such as the following: fever, continuous/extreme pain, rash, tattoo area hot the touch, red streaking, elevated body temperature, blisters, foul odor,
Once completely healed, always apply a layer of sunscreen SPF 30 up to SPF 50 on your tattoo when exposed to the sun.
