Jon Laflore: Artist Among Tattooers
What up Savages. Today, our Authentik Savage tattoo artist wanted to drop some knowledge on you all. Make a mental note of these gems and make sure you follow him on Instagram.
I started as a graffiti artist in NY at a young age. That thrust me into the art world headfirst. I spent my late teenage years trying to figure out what I wanted out of the art world before settling on going to art school. One semester before graduating I found tattooing was my true passion and moved to Miami 3 days later to follow that passion on a wimb. Since then my career and lifestyle blossomed and my following skyrocketed.
For the aftercare of a tattoo, I recommend using a product called Saniderm, it acts as a second skin protecting the tattoo in the first 3-5 days of healing. The first step after your tattoo is finished is cleaning the tattoo thoroughly with an alcohol swab. Followed by peeling off the film and applying it directly over the finished tattoo. After 3-5 days remove the bandage under warm water. Clean thoroughly with anti-bacterial soap and pat dry with a clean paper towel. The only product I recommend using after this stage is a small amount of fragrance-free lotion. After 2-3 weeks your tattoo will be fully healed.
You can find me at Borrowed Time Tattoo in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
