If you accidentally or maliciously tattooed yourself, here are some things you should do to protect yourself: Remove the tattoo or ink from your finger.
This means that it is no longer visible to the naked eye, so it can’t be seen on the skin, or it can no longer be easily identified from a distance.
If you want to get your finger tattooed, contact your local tattoo parlor and get the tattoo removed.
Remove the finger from the tattooer’s hands.
If the tattoo artist used scissors to cut the skin around the tattoo, they should remove the skin by holding the skin down with one hand while the other hand holds the scissors to the skin.
If they removed the skin from their fingers with a needle, you may need to get a tattoo removal kit.
Clean and disinfect the tattoo.
Tattoos can stain clothing and paint, so always wash your hands after you have a tattoo and make sure you’re thoroughly disinfected.
Wash your hands thoroughly before removing a tattoo, and disinfect your hands before you use the needle.
Apply antiperspirant to the tattoo needle.
This will help keep the tattoo from sticking to your skin and from spreading.
Avoid applying the tattoo to your arm or shoulder.
If it’s a tattoo on your arm, you don’t want to make it stick out too far and it may hurt.
Apply a light coat of antibacterial soap and wipe the tattoo with a damp cloth before removing it.
Avoid using a tattoo gun, which is a metal object that uses a sharp blade to cut skin.
Tattoo removal kits can be purchased at tattoo shops and tattoo parlors.
Follow the instructions carefully and follow the directions for disinfecting your hands.
