The following are guidelines that will help your care for your new tattoo. If your artists specifies different methods, trust that their method works best for the tattoo they have given you.,
When you take the bandage off, make sure to give it a thorough wash with unscented pump soap (avoid already used bar soap) and warm water.
When the tattoo is dry apply a small amount of Bephanten to the tattoo. Repeat until tattoo is fully healed.
DO NOT use any other aftercare (Vaseline, Savlon, Sudocrem). Bephanten or Tattoo Goo is the only thing we would recommend.
Do not let the tattoo dry out. Keep a thin layer of Bepanthen on the tattoo until it has fully healed.
If scabbing begins to form, do not pick at it, leave it be as this is perfectly normal.
If the itch is too much, use a small amount of unscented lotion or tattoo aftercare product like Hustle Butter or Tattoo Goo to moisturize and provide relief.
Apply any lotions or aftercare salves sparingly.
Try to avoid getting the fresh tattoo stuck to bedsheets and clothes (fabric rubbing may irritate your tattoo).
Vigorous exercise or activity that causes sweating may cause “dropout” or an infection. Be careful.
Shower as normal but do not swim (baths,swimming pool,hot tubs....
No fake tan, makeup, sunbeds or direct sunlight.
Any dirt, oil, harsh chemicals or animal hairs will impair the healing of your tattoo and may cause nasty infections.
Little redness or bruising is normal. However, a lot of redness, a lot of bruising, excesive pain, not feeling well, raised body temperature ... IS NOT normal. Contact us or your local GP.
During the healing process you may experience some ink dropout, when your tattoo is fully healed contact your artist, he will touch up the work free of charge.
Tattooing skin is potentially a dangerous activity. Even with all precautions on our part (new sterile needles, safest inks, high hygiene standard) infection or ink reaction may occur.
