TATTOO AFTER CARE

Tattoo After Care
  • Keep the dressing on for at least 2 hours
  • After 2 hours, remove the dressing and wash the tattoo in warm soapy water. Use a mild soap on your new tattoo.
  • Gently pat dry with a towel, do not rub.
  • Smooth a small amount of Bepanthen ointment or vegan equivalent on to the tattoo, once in the morning and one at night.                                                                                               USE SPARINGLY.
  • Do not re-cover your tattoo, allow it to breathe.
  • No swimming, direct sunlight, sunbeds, saunas or hot tubs until fully healed (approx 28 days)
  • Avoid getting your tattoo sunburned after healing, always use a sunblock, SPF 50+
  • Your tattoo may weep for 2 days so be careful of light fabrics as it may stain.
  • If your tattoo becomes stuck to your clothes DO NOT pull it off, gently soak the cloth until it comes away from the tattoo.
  • Avoid baths for the first week, showers are fine but do not let the water hit directly on to your new tattoo.
  • Your new tattoo will need time to settle down, it may be shiny/waxy looking for a while and it may get itchy. Don't worry it is part of the normal healing process, which is approx. 10-28 days.
  • DO NOT PICK OR SCRATCH!!
