Tattoo Aftercare

The Healing Process

  • 1

    Leave your bandage/wrap on for a maximum of 4 hours unless otherwise instructed.

    The wrap is a barrier to stop the tattoo getting any dirt in it when you leave the studio and travel home. Remove as per the artists instructions.

  • 2

    Wash your tattoo well after removing the bandage/wrap.

    Wash your tattoo thoroughly with clean hands using warm water and a fragrance-free soap to remove and excess/dried blood and plasma.

  • 3

    Pat your tattoo dry after cleaning it.

    Use a clean paper towel to dry your tattoo by gently patting the area. DON'T RUB and allow to air dry for 30 minutes.

  • 4

    Apply a small amount of lotion.

    After cleaning your tattoo, ensure the area is completely dry before applying a very thin layer of the recommended aftercare product/lotion to help moisturize and nourish the area.

  • 5

    Wash your tattoo regularly.

    Continue to use a fragrance-free soap and lukewarm water to clean your tattoo at least twice a day and continue moisturizing. Ensure your hands are clean.

  • 6

    Repeat the cleaning process until the tattoo is fully healed.

    Remember that your tattoo isn't completely safe from germs and bacteria until it has completely finished scabbing and peeling. This can take up to 4 weeks.

  • 7

    Don't pick and pull at the flaking scabbing skin.

    Picking away at your healing tattoo can delay healing, cause fading or drop outs, and increase the chances of infection.

  • 8

    Stay away from the sun.

    Don't expose your new tattoo to intense sunlight and don't apply any sun lotion to the area until it has fully healed.

  • 9

    Stay away from water.

    All bodies of water can contain nasty bacteria which will ruin a new tattoo if you're not careful. stick to short showers until your skin has fully healed, and don't go swimming.

  • 10

    Continue to look after your tattoo once healed.

    Once healed, keep your tattoo well protected from the sun and ensure you continue to moisturize the area regularly. Healthy skin means a healthy-looking tattoo.
