AFTERCARE TIPS

If you have any additional questions or concerns please email us. If you suspect your tattoo is infected please consult a physician.

TIP ONE

After 4 hours, remove the bandage and scrub the fresh tattoo with mild unscented soap. Wash until tattoo is no longer shiny - DO NOT rebandage. TIP: If bandage is stuck, wet entire bandage to remove.

TIP TWO

Scrub tattoo again that night (or next morning) to remove all plasma, loose ink. TIP: Keep scrubbing/cleaning tattoo while it’s fresh and ‘oozing’. This will significantly reduce scabbing and speed up recovery time.

TIP THREE

Use unscented, non-medicated moisturizer 2 to 3 times a day if needed until tattoo is fully healed. TIP: Always wash your hands before applying moisturizer.

TIP FOUR

Keep the tattooed area out of direct sunlight and tanning booths until tattoo is fully healed.

TIP FIVE

DO NOT soak tattoo in a tub or hot tub - NO saunas, swimming in a pool or lake until tattoo is fully healed. Showers are O.K.

TIP SIX

DO NOT pick or rub the tattoo when it’s dried and healing. Loss of colour and/or infection could occur.

TIP SEVEN

Extreme sun exposure over years can and will fade your tattoo. TIP: Use a strong sunscreen to help keep your tattoo looking bright and clean.
