so im getting a full japanese body suit done and im starting a full torso piece that goes down to my thighs. My concern is how to heal the ink on my waist? wouldnt the pressure form underwear pants ruin the healing ink?
Go commando for a few days.
Ditch the briefs. The 70s are over.
im serious guy lol and even if i were commando wouldnt it be the same problem with pants shorts etc? please help
Just wear something with a looser waistband (e.g. boxers). The ink isn’t going to get ruined if fabric touches it. It’s more an issue of irritation or constant moisture from the waistband.
Use the dry wrap healing method and dont worry about it
Healing for large sessions:
Bandage your tattoo with saran/plastic wrap allowing no air to get to the tattoo for the first 72 hours. Within those 72 hours remove the wrap every 4 hours and wash thoroughly with non-scented anti-bacterial soap. Re-apply wrap with new saran/plastic wrap. Repeat process for remainder of 72 hours. After 72 hours remove the wrap leaving the tattoo exposed and use an intensive care FRAGRANCE-FREE dry skin lotion such as Lubriderm. Apply lightly as needed and for as long as needed.
