Tattoo Aftercare

Thank you for trusting our studio and tattoo artists to do your new ink! ūüėĀ
Although we will have discussed the aftercare process in person, here is all the instructions you need to look after
your new tattoo.

**If you do have any queries or need help with anything, don't hesitate to get in touch!**

√óRemember your tattoo is an open wound, it can be prone to infections, especially if NOT
CARED for properly!√ó

√óSo please read these instructions carefully
and follow them so your tattoo will heal correctly!√ó

√óYou will leave our tattoo studio with your new tattoo wrapped in cling film. We recommend that you keep this on for 1-2 hours√ó

√óYou DO NOT need to wrap the tattoo up again! After you remove the wrap, make sure you dispose of it properly in a bin!√ó

**It is now time to wash your new tattoo**

√óMake sure that you wash your hands thoroughly before and after cleaning your fresh tattoo. √ó

√óUse mild, antibacterial soap to clean your tattoo. DO NOT use scented or perfumes post-it WILL STING√ó

√óDo NOT scrub your tattoo or immerse it in water!√ó

√óUse lukewarm water to clean the tattoo, do not put it under hot water!√ó

√óDO NOT wipe or rub your new ink! Use kitchen roll & pat it dry!√ó

√óRepeat this process 2 to 3 times a day, Morning & Night at least!√ó


√óLet the tattoo dry out as much as possible for 1-3 days, when it starts itching, apply a small amount of the cream!√ó

√óApply a thin layer of your aftercare cream to the tattoo, make sure that it is rubbed in properly!√ó

**We recommend Palmer's Cocoa Butter as an aftercare cream, please consult us before using another cream on your tattoo!**

√óDO NOT over moisturise your tattoo! It is like any other wound, if it is suffocated, it will not heal propely and will likely have more problems√ó

√óCertain places on the body will heal differently than others and some may be dryer for longer, so keep using aftercare cream for as long as you need!√ó

**We advise that healing a tattoo fully takes between 2 to 4 weeks**

√óWithin 4-6 days, your tattoo will begin to peel and flake. This can be scary as it looks like the tattoo is falling off-IT IS NOT! So don't worry√ó

√óLet the scabs fall off on their own! DO NOT pick or scratch them! Put cream on or distract yourself!√ó

√óPicking at the scabs or scratching will lead to loss of ink in the tattoo. Artists can tell if a tattoo has been picked!√ó
