whenever i bring up my stick n pokes i always get questions on how i do it, what i use and is it safe, so i decided to make a big post about it, since i don’t really like all of the guides i’ve seen when googling how to do it, they make it so complicated and scary looking, when it’s really simple. this post will tell you what to use (what i used), how to do it and also address some frequently asked questions
This is a very accurate guide to use!
I am TERRIBLE with my s&p’s! Lol. When I practice poked I never cared properly like a complete s&p. Nothing happened to me, BUT YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN YOU’LL GET AN INFECTION. You’re breaking your skin barrier, letting bacteria and germs in. So I advise to ALWAYS properly sanitize and clean it when you shower. Hope this helps! Happy Poking!
IM NOT POSITIVE, but I believe that it wouldn’t be harmful. They make temporary tattoos to safely go on your skin, so it isn’t harmful to your body. But like I said, I don’t know for a fact. Proceed at your own risk. Hope this helps! Happy Poking!
To keep it clean; rinse with clean water and wash with antibacterial soap daily for the 2 weeks it takes to heal. To care for it; you need to lotion it constantly so it isn’t all scabby, its normal to scab, its just your skin’s way of healing. Hope this helps!
It would be best to wait at least 3 months to go swimming after getting a tattoo, because then you would have a full layer of skin over it, so it might be best to wait until you’re done with swim. Hope this helps!
