TATTOO AFTERCARE

DAY 1

A fresh tattoo should be kept covered using cling film for 3-4 hours. 

Remove the cover after 3-4hours and rinse your tattoo with lukewarm water and a gentle, scent-free cleanser. Gently rinse off any plasma and ink.

Pat dry using a clean towel or kitchen paper- do not use toilet paper as it may deposit paper material onto the tattoo.


Take care when sleeping, and avoid resting on top of the tattoo while it is healing.

DAYS 2-7 (WEEK 1)

After this, leave the tattoo uncovered.

For the first 48 hours do not apply any cream to your tattoo, but continue to clean it in the morning and evening.

Scabbing and flaking of the skin while the tattooing is healing is normal. Never scratch your tattoos!

Once the tattoo starts to flake (usually after 2-3 days), begin applying a colour-free, gentle cream to your tattoo using clean hands, after washing. Apply a thin layer of the cream and rub in well 2-3 times a day.

WEEK 2

You do not need to specifically wash the tattoo twice a day, but keep it clean and moisturise once a day. 

Have showers rather than baths for the first two weeks. Avoid swimming either in the sea or swimming pools until your tattoo has completely healed.

Avoid exposing your tattoo to direct sunlight, and do not use tanning lotion or sun beds for long periods of time during the first 2 weeks as this may cause your tattoo to blur or fade.

WHY AFTERCARE MATTERS

Tattoo aftercare is crucial: until your tattoo is fully healed, it is not permanent. Infections from cross-contamination, picking at scabs, scratching, soaking in baths, swimming pools can lead to your tattoo ink dissipating, leaving a tattoo that may need touching up.

Take care of yourself, take care of your tattoos.

If you have any concerns please consult your tattoo artist, who will be happy to answer your queries and check on the condition of your tattoo.
