A tattoo is one of the most dynamic symbols of self-expression ever created and it’s important to rely on expert guidance of your artist for the proper aftercare of your life-long treasure.
You were tattooed in a modern studio with sterilised instruments and pigments. After the process, the artist may have dressed the tattoo with a small amount of aftercare ointment. The life of your tattoo depends upon the care you give it upon the first few days and weeks.
Quality parlour operators worldwide have helped compile these simple directions for quick healing. However, we urge you to consult your own tattoo artist for any specific instructions related to the
aftercare of your specific tattoo.
1. Do not re-cover the tattoo (unless specifically advised to by your artist).
2. Do not apply Vaseline or any petroleum-based products.
3. Do not apply alcohol.
4. Do not rub, scratch or pick the tattoo.
5. Do not expose the tattoo to direct sunlight, UV tanning lights, swim or soak in a sauna, steam bath or bath tub for the next two weeks.
A tattoo Is a simple abrasion. It may bleed at first but it’ll stop in a couple of hours. Most artists recommend that the tattoo is left covered overnight or left for at least two to five hours.
Once the tattoo is exposed, wash the tattoo carefully in cold water, gently applying antibacterial soap, with fingers (never use a cloth) to remove all surface blood. Rinse with cold water, pat dry with a clean towel and let it air dry for 15 minutes. Then apply a thin layer of the recommended aftercare sparingly. Repeat this process 2 to 3 times a day for the next 7-10 days
