So you just got a new tattoo, can you get a massage?
The answer is No.
Rubbing your new tattoo can be painful, can cause irritation, most likely develop into a rash with an infection. DO NOT MASSAGE YOUR NEW FRESH TATTOO.
While your tattoo is healing it is not recommended to submerse in water, expose to sunlight, go to the gym or rub or peel for any reason.
Tattoos usually heal within 3-4 weeks for the outer layers of skin. However, 16 weeks can be the average healing time for the lower layers of the skin. However, remember everyone is different in the healing process.
If your new tattoo is peeling, we suggest you wait until the skin falls off naturaly. Avoid scratching, itching or picking at your fresh tattoo.
Inflammation is part of the healing process however if the inflmmation persists visit your doctor.
Seek medical advice or a doctor to determine complete healing of your tattoo so you can enjoy a safe Registered Massage without any chance of infection.
