Did you know if you are sick with a cold or flu (or suffer another ongoing health condition) and get tattooed, your tattoo will ‘usually’ take longer to heal – this is because your body is fighting like crazy to try and make you healthy again as well as trying to heal your new beautiful piece of ink as well as dealing with the foreign bodies (ink) you’ve just introduced to it.
Recently I read an article where a lady got a new tattoo when she was pregnant but didn’t know she was – she didn’t know for a few weeks and was getting very frustrated that her new tattoo just wouldn’t heal! The tattoo remained in a semi state of ‘unsettledness’ (if that is even a word!) until she had the baby. She had to go back for a touch up and it healed right up in a couple of weeks!
So expect your new ink to take a little longer if you are not in tip top condition!
And yes, of course we are going to say, TINKture is even more helpful under these conditions – the product aids and speeds the healing process under normal conditions – but the benefits are even more important if you are unwell – it protects against infection too – all in a very kind, natural & gentle way.
What prompted me to write this and remind everyone, is I got tattooed last Wednesday (24/4) and that night came down with a very nasty head & chest cold – my tattoo is taking longer to heal and go through the normal stages in the healing process – little Marco Mouse is looking great but needs a few more days – when I’m healthy (& I use TINKture as directed) I’m usually healed in 7-10 days.

You see I bruise very easily too – there is lovely light shading around Marco, represented by the end of the tattoo, with nice bruising! TINK takes care of that very quickly though.
