For the first few weeks, the tattoo will lose it’s brightness slightly as it’s healing. After about a month it should be fully healed and the sharpness should return. If you think an area hasn’t healed so well though (it happens), get in touch with your artist and they will be more than happy to touch-it-up! Bepanthen can also be used to protect wounds from infection and promote the healing of cuts and scrapes. There are many aftercare products out there, from lotions and balms to washes.

If you’re drunk, you could also accidentally bump your new ink and cause it further injury. Water however, is exactly what you need.

Don’t submerge in water: You can get your tattoo wet with short showers, but it shouldn't be submerged or soaked in the bath or swimming for at least two-to-three weeks (or longer) until healed. Once the scabs begin to flake off, resist the urge to scrub at them and let the skin flakes come off gently in the shower.
