How to properly care for your tattoo?

Taking proper care of your new tattoo is crucial to preserve its beauty and prevent infection. Here are some essential steps to tattoo aftercare from HALFMOON Tattoo, your trusted tattoo studio in Bali.


Always listen to the aftercare instructions provided by your tattoo artist. At HALFMOON Tattoo, we offer comprehensive guidance to ensure the best healing process for your new tattoo.

Clean the tattoo gently with mild soap and warm water after a few hours, but avoid soaking. Pat, it dries with a clean towel and let it air dry. HALFMOON Tattoo artists emphasize the importance of gentle cleaning to avoid damaging the tattoo.

Application of a thin layer of a specific ointment or lotion, like the ones we provide at HALFMOON Tattoo, can keep your tattoo moisturized and prevent scabbing.

Avoid exposure to direct sunlight. The sun’s rays can fade the pigments and damage your tattoo. Our team at HALFMOON Tattoo recommends keeping the tattoo covered when outdoors for the first few weeks.


A new tattoo is an open wound. Avoid swimming and any activities that can expose it to bacteria until it’s fully healed.

Lastly, do not scratch or pick at your tattoo. If it becomes itchy, it’s a part of the healing process. HALFMOON Tattoo suggests using a moisturizer to soothe the itch.

Following these steps, along with any additional instructions provided by the skilled team at HALFMOON Tattoo, can ensure your tattoo heals beautifully, and its artistry lasts a lifetime.
