It's individual. Each has a unique metabolism and therefore a different healing time. But healing is also affected by the body's current condition, so if someone is ill or exhausted, healing can be extended by a few days. In principle, however, healing takes about 10 to 14 days. But after 14 days, the tattoo must still be protected from the sun, either by covering or with a cream with a strong protection factor (> 30). It is also advisable to hydrate the tattooed area, e.g. body lotion, preferably with vitamin E. When it comes to piercings, it's very similar. Just with navel piercings and also intimate piercings, healing can be extended by a few weeks.
Yes, it hurts, but it's fine. It depends on the place that is tattooed or pierced. More painful areas are areas with softer, more sensitive skin (neck, inner side of arms and legs, groin, ..., or areas on the body where the bone is immediately close (clavicle, elbow, knee, ankle, ribs, ...) .
The pain itself can be described as burning, gentle cutting, ... of course, everyone has a different pain threshold and therefore the feeling of pain is different. However, this is not terrible, as evidenced by the growing population of tattooed and denied people.
Taking care of new tattoos or piercings is mainly about maintaining increased hygiene in the first days. Then it is necessary to use antibacterial soap, avoid contact with dirty things, do not bathe in lakes and swimming pools, do not grab tattoos with dirty hands and protect it from mechanical damage. Don't scratch. Do not pluck rattles. In the case of tattoos, it is necessary to start creaming after three days with a thin layer of healing cream a maximum of 3 times a day.
