Tattoo Aftercare

Once you leave the studio, it is your responsibility to care for your body and tattoo during the healing process.

The following steps and information will play a direct role in how your tattoo heals.

After Your Session

1. Remove wrap after two hours

2. Wash tattoo with warm water and antibacterial soap

3. Pat dry and apply Bepanthen cream (not oil) 45 minutes after washing

4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 each morning and night for 5 – 7 days

Important Things to Remember

Your tattoo is an open wound, so treat it like one.
Keeping it clean and not scratching it are common sense.
Keep unwashed hands off it.
Do NOT soak your tattoo in any form of water until healed. Showers are fine.
Do NOT sun bake or any other form of tanning for one month. Even after your tattoo is healed, too much sun will fade the colour in your tattoo over time. Use sunscreen.
Picking the scabs from your tattoo while it is healing will cause the colour to fall out. Let the scabs fall off naturally.
