- For fresh tattoo just before Holi – Ace tattooz are sad to tell you to say goodbye to Holi
- Harmful and toxic colors damage the skin and may cause serious health issues. So if your tattoo is fresh and new it is a big no to celebrate the frolic festival of Holi as you may get prone to allergic reactions or infections.
- Also, it is compulsory to keep your tattoo dry to hamper infections. Obviously, Holi means dunking, spraying, and drowning in not so clear water so you may have to refrain from playing with water and colors.
- For the Old tat – Celebrate with precautions as suggested by Ace tattooz
- First and foremost wrap a cling film around your artwork to protect it. But some extra care won’t harm. So as Ace tattooz is experienced in the field have listed below some other necessary tips.
- Before rushing off to celebrate, make sure to slather some unscented and cruelty-free moisturizer on your tattoo to retain the hydration and keep it from getting dry and patchy.
- Prevent direct exposure to colors and sun rays by applying recommended cream and lotion by your certified artist or you can ask us-Ace tattooz to recommend some. Doing so will prevent colors from sticking.
- If possible neglect using chemically made toxic colors and make use of organic ones. This will guard you from serious skin infection which may cause tattoo losing its color and appearance of white spots on it.
- If your Holi is organized as a pool party theme it is important to use sunblock to prevent your tattoo from chlorine.
- It is always best to keep the tattooed part of your body covered if possible for minimal damage. Opt for full sleeved tops and full length bottom wear.
- Drink water, juices etc. all day and prohibit alcohol intake as dehydrated skin may get dry and sunburn easily.
