Congratulations on your new ink!

Caring for your tattoo doesn't end when you leave the studio. Proper aftercare is crucial to ensure your tattoo heals beautifully and lasts a lifetime. At Valhalla Live the Legend ®, we understand that a great tattoo reflects your personality and values, just like a well-groomed beard. That's why our protective tattoo balm, all-purpose tattoo balms and cleansers are crafted to protect and enhance your body art from day one.

Immediate Post-Tattoo Care

  1. Initial Protection: Right after getting inked, your tattoo artist will cover the tattoo with a protective layer. This cover helps shield the new tattoo from infections and contaminants. Keep this cover on for at least a few hours as recommended by your tattoo artist.

  2. First Cleaning: Gently clean your tattoo for the first time with lukewarm water and a gentle, fragrance-free soap. Pat the area dry with a clean, soft towel. This helps remove any residue and prevents potential infection.

  3. Moisturize and Protect: After cleaning and drying, apply a thin layer of Valhalla Live the Legend ® Protective Tattoo Balm. Formulated with natural ingredients, our balm reduces redness and itching, accelerates the healing process, and provides a protective barrier against environmental damage.

First Two Weeks of Healing

  1. Regular Cleansing: It’s essential to keep your tattoo clean by washing it 2-3 times a day with a mild cleanser. This prevents the buildup of bacteria and helps maintain the clarity of your tattoo’s details.

  2. Continuous Moisturizing: Apply Valhalla Live the Legend ® Protective Tattoo Balm regularly after cleaning to keep the tattooed skin hydrated but not oversaturated. This balance is vital to avoid complications like scabbing or fading.

  3. Sun and Water Exposure: Avoid exposing your tattoo to prolonged sunlight and refrain from swimming or soaking in water. UV rays can degrade the ink quality, while water can interfere with ink retention and increase infection risks.

Long-Term Tattoo Care

After your tattoo has fully healed, it remains important to care for the skin around it to maintain the vibrancy and definition of your tattoo. Our All-Purpose Tattoo Balm is not only perfect for the initial healing stages but also ideal for daily moisturizing. Regular use of our balm will keep your tattoo vibrant and your skin healthy. Always cover your tattoo with high-SPF sunscreen during sun exposure to prevent fading and ink degradation.
