After your tattoo you will be given aftercare instructions by your Artist.
- Once the tattoo has been completed and cleaned, please ensure that it is kept covered for a minimum of 3 hours with the Clingfilm supplied as advised.
- After that time you need to wash it with unscented soap (anti-bacterial is good) using just your fingertips. No sponge or flannel.
- After washing, let it air dry, no wiping or patting dry . Once it is dry , leave it for that day.
- The following morning wash it using the same process (again, letting it air dry naturally ). Once it's dry, apply a little cream with Bepanthen . Apply a very thin layer (not rubbed in like most moisturizer), just a nice thin layer. Repeat this process 4 times a day for 6-8 days .
- No scratching , no itching, no direct sunlight and no submerging in water.
- We recommend and advise that it is kept clean at all times.
