• BodyMods StretchAide Tape

    BodyMods StretchAide Tape

    BodyMods StretchAide Tape is a 100% PTFE tape. This tape is a slow and safe way to stretch your piercings as an alternative to tapers.  It's also the perfect compliment to BodyMods StretchAide Lubricant.

    Why PTFE? PTFE tape is the best option for stretching as it is self-adhering. This means there's no adhesive - it sticks to metal and itself. You want to avoid adhesives as they can melt and ooze over time and leech chemicals into your piercings.

    How does it work? With clean hands, apply one layer of the BodyMods StretchAide Tape to your clean metal tunnel or plug. Insert the jewelry back into your piercing with a small amount of StretchAide Lubricant on your jewelry. This will help it glide into the piercing. Removing friction when stretching is important to avoid tears and blowouts, which can make sizing up or down harder later on. For more information on how to stretch, click here.

Why tattoo aftercare is important

A tattoo is more than a way to express yourself through artwork. Getting a tattoo is a medical procedure, a needle is used to insert ink underneath the skin of the tattoo area. A new tattoo is a open wound and should be treated as such. Any time skin is opened, there is always a risk of infection. Going to a reputable tattoo shop, seeing a reputable, experienced tattoo artist and following aftercare instructions can all help reduce the risk of infection.

A fresh tattoo needs aftercare

A properly cared for tattoo will not only heal safely but properly. If a proper tattoo aftercare routine is not followed, as the tattoo heals, it can become distorted or scarred.

Talk to your tattoo artist about tattoo aftercare instructions

When your tattoo artist finishes your tattoo, they will most likely bandage the it. They will tell you how long this bandage should be kept on but on average, no longer than 2-3 hours. If it is a second skin bandage, those should be kept for 24+ hours.

The first time washing your new tattoo

After the first bandage is removed, do not put another one on. This can delay the healing process and stop the area from breathing and getting rid of moisture. Excess moisture between the bandage and skin can lead to bacteria forming if the bandage is left on for too long. Once the bandage is removed, gently wash the tattoo area with anti-microbal Blue Green Foam Soap with your hand or fingers. Wash your hands with the same soap before touching your tattoo. Do not use a washcloth or other rough material as it will irritate the new tattoo and can also be painful. Gently pat the tattoo area dry, and apply a thin layer of fragrance-free moisturizer or lotion like H2Ocean Foam.

Don’t worry about blood or excess ink

Once you remove the first bandage, the tattoo may feel a little goopy. This is because the fresh tattoo was coated in a thin layer of moisturizer and then covered by a bandage that does not allow the skin to breathe. When the area is first washed, the skin may feel slimy. Wash the tattoo until that slimy feeling is gone. Your tattoo may look a little worse than when you saw it before your tattoo artist bandaged it up. This is part of the normal tattoo healing process. Excess ink and fluid from the tattoo are not a cause for concern.

Talk to your tattoo artist about tattoo aftercare tips

Some tattoo artists will recommend moisturizing tattoos immediately, while others may recommend waiting a few days. Listen to your tattoo artist, and make sure that you are gentle with the tattooed area. Tattooed skin is more prone to irritation and needs to be cared for properly so your tattoo will not fade.

Tattoo aftercare products

Bodymods recommends H2Ocean aftercare products for tattoos. Talk to your tattoo artist if you do not have the proper products after your appointment. We recommend using BodyMods tattoo medic CBD oil or H2Ocean Foam while the tattoo is healing. Blue Green foam is our choice of soap when washing and cleaning the tattoo.

It is important to keep your tattooed skin moisturized and clean. Avoid tanning booths, direct sun, and self-tanning ointments over your tattoos, as these could reduce the quality of your healed tattoos.

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR NEW TATTOO

1.) Do not re-bandage your tattoo. Once you remove the bandage after the designated time, do not place another bandage on top of the new tattoo. Another bandage can slow healing time and stop the area from “breathing.” This means it can hold in harmful bacteria that grows in the moisture between the bandage and your skin.

Note: Your artist will tell you how long to keep your bandage on for. Traditional bandages are usually 2-3 hours. If your artist uses a 2nd skin bandage, keep it on for 24+ hours. It’s normal to see plasma or blood underneath your bandage.

2.) Wash your tattoo with anti-microbial Blue Green Foam Soap and ONLY with your hand or fingers. Always wash your hands with Blue Green Foam Soap before touching your tattoo. This will kill bacteria, viruses, and other things that can cause infections or worse.

3.) Do not use a washcloth or abrasive materials to clean your tattoo. Abrasive materials irritate the skin and can leave fragments behind in your tattoo. This may slow healing and create a higher risk of infection. Instead, wash the area with your clean hand and allow the tattoo to air dry. Next, apply Ocean Care Tattoo Cream or Foam. Keep this up for at least the first two weeks of healing.

4.) Do not pick or scratch your tattoo. This is important. Picking or scratching the tattoo will pull out ink, fade the tattoo and make the area angry. If your tattoo itches, lightly tap the area with the palm of your clean hand. This is the hardest rule to follow, but we guarantee it’s worth it to leave your tattoo alone.

1.) Avoid hot tubs, pools and the ocean. Chlorine and other chemicals from hot tubs and pools can ruin your tattoo. They’re irritating and may cause infection. The ocean has many microorganisms and bacteria that inflame and infect new tattoos. Some diseases that live in these areas are: E. coli, cryptosporidiosis (Crypto), Viral Hepatitis A, and leptospirosis.

2.) Don’t soak your tattoo in water. Overexposing your tattoo to water will increase scabbing. This may cause your tattoo to look murky and faded.

3.) Avoid direct sunlight or tanning beds. Not only will sunlight and tanning beds be painful to the new tattoo, but they’ll cause the ink to fade. The UV rays leave your tattoo faded and splotchy. Can’t avoid the sun? H2Ocean’s Surfer’s Choice
sunscreen is safe the day after you get tattooed.

Note: Even after you have healed, direct sunlight and tanning beds will break up the ink in your skin. You’ll lose a lot of the detail and your light colors.

4.) Avoid sand and using tanning oils or lotions. These have harmful ingredients. Wait at least 30 days before applying tanning lotions and oils to your new tattoo.

5.) Avoid tight fitting clothes. Clothes that rub will irritate your skin and may leave small pieces of material in your tattoo. Wear loose fitting clothing paired with H2Ocean Ocean Foam.

If you’ve had a tattoo before, you know you’re in for tenderness, swelling, and itching afterwards. CBD has you covered with its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Antioxidants in CBD promote faster healing. It’s also an antiseptic, so it helps prevent infections.

There are no side effects and low chances of an allergic reaction.

Use our Tattoo Medic CBD Oil instead of Ocean Care Cream.

  • Blue Green Foam Soap – mild liquid antibacterial or antimicrobial soap.
  • Ocean Care Cream – Vitamin A + D enriched ointment or an antibacterial ointment. CBD oil or cream.
  • Ocean Care Foam – no alternatives.
  • Sea Life Sunscreen – SPF 45 broad spectrum sunscreen works after your tattoo is healed. We also strongly recommend looking for reef-safe options to help the environment, but your tattoo won’t know the difference.
