After Care

After your new tattoo is complete, your tattooist will put a dressing on it. Leave this on for 1-2 hours, then wash your new tattoo 2-3 times per day, with warm, soapy water, as you would normally wash. Pat your tattoo dry, do not rub it. Gently moisturise the area after washing, with any basic, non-scented, non-perfumed moisturiser (ie Bepanthen, Aqueous cream, Nivea, Simple. Do not use any vitamin enriched creams such as E45. Do not use Vaseline.) Do not pick or scratch your tattoo whilst healing. Please do not expose your new tattoo to sunshine or chlorinated swimming pool for a minimum of two weeks. Avoid all contact with any hazardous materials ie paint, oil, grease, dirt, raw meats. If you have any concerns, contact your tattooist.
Please remember – your tattoo has been applied in a clean, sterile manner. When you leave the tattoo studio – you are responsible for your new tattoo.
