Wearing The Right Fabric For Your Skin After A Tattoo

Once your tattoo has been created, your tattooist will wipe it down and clean the surrounding skin by applying an antiseptic ointment. Once the ointment has been applied, a piece of soft tissue or cellophane will be placed over the tattoo.

If you follow these instructions carefully you won’t have to worry about an infection. After a few days most tattoos tend to scab in some areas and if you aren’t careful, you could end up damaging your design. It is during this time your skin will be more sensitized and you may also consider what clothing you choose to wear and which fabrics you place close to your skin for added comfort.

Fabrics for a sensitized skin

Choose natural fibers like cotton, silk and bamboo for softness and spandex, polyester and rayon mix for fabrics with stretch to give you more comfort when you move.

Although the manufacturing of fabric has become increasingly chemically based and treatments with bleach, dye, flame retardants, permanent press and sizing chemicals, sun protection and even insect repellants is common in the manufacturing process, the blending of fabrics has proven to be highly effective in improving the performance and comfort of garments.

T-Shirts in sportswear and active wear are a prime example of the benefits of tri-blend fabrics which is extremely durable, attract moisture away from the body and at the same time are anti-microbial – which makes them ideal to wear after a tattoo.

A selection of men’s and women’s performance long sleeve hooded tee’s, t shirts, tanks and leggings are made from fabric mixes such as 57% cotton, 38% polyester, 5% spandex or blends such as 50% polyester, 37.5% cotton, 12.5% rayon which aids in their comfort.
