29 Jun WHAT HAPPEN AFTER THE TATTOO?
The tattoo is a superficial skin lesion.
THE HEALING PROCESS usually takes 3/5 weeks. It has two steps: CICATRIZATION and NORMALIZATION. The first one starts right after the tattoo. It includes the making of cuticles and scabs, which will fall after 1/2 weeks. The normalization process: the skin looks dry and may hitch. This step has a variable longevity, depending on the skin. It usually takes 2/3 weeks (cellular turnover). In this period the skin may need to be hydrated again.
