Q. My Tattoo is still oozing fluid. What should I do?
A. Treat the area gently. During the tattooing process the lymph and sweat glands have been disturbed and they may exude fluid that needs to leave the skin. Over application of an aftercare trapping the excess fluid can cause problems.
Lightly clean the area with warm water. Dab dry using a clean towel or tissue, don’t rub, and allow to air dry for a few minutes. Repeat the process very gently if required. Apply a very light film of aftercare, (less is more!).
If you need to apply a dressing choose a non-stick dressing. If the dressing sticks when you go to remove it use warm water to gently soak the dressing off . Repeat the above process. The excretions will stop as the healing progresses.
If the secretions continue leave the skin for a day without any aftercare and allow it to dry out. Then follow the above.
