I'm looking online at how to care for a brand new tattoo and all of the information is very conflicting.
Plastic wrap is supposedly good and very bad, the length of time to keep it covered varies wildly, I'm confused!
I'm getting my first tattoo tomorrow, a memorial for my sister. It will be on my upper arm. Not huge but not exactly tiny. I'm paranoid and assuming my artist won't tell me what to do.
I thought I'd look it up and educate myself, get what I need from the store and stuff. Now I'm just confused what methods and what products are the best :-\
What are your tips for handling the new tattoo and what products do you recommend?
Anything specifically NOT to do?
Thanks sexy tattooed ladies!

Quoting AngeLnChainZ:

You only keep it covered for a short period of time after having it done (No more than an hour..) As for the artist, if he does not give you proper care instructions- you need to find a new artist!
