AFTERCARE

The aftercare of your new tattoo is the most important part of the healing process to ensure the best result for you. Not following my aftercare instructions can alter the outcome and additional touch ups may be required. Please take the time to understand the steps in this healing process.

An aftercare product will be given to you to apply once or twice a day. A very thin layer is all that is needed. Apply with clean fingertips only. 

The first few days, your new tattoo can be bold and sharp looking. You may feel the treated area feels tight and tender, almost like a sunburn. 

After a few days your tattoo may start to flake a little. It’s important not to pick at them. 

The entire healing process takes up to 6 weeks. During this time you will notice your tattoo becoming lighter and softer in the skin. It can also look patchy. This is all to be expected. Over time, you will notice the colour becomes more stronger and evened out. Your touch up appointment will be at the end of this period and will complete any colour loss.

FIRST TEN DAYS…..

Avoid saturating your tattoo with water. A quick and gentle spritz of water and gentle cleansing with soap while bathing is fine. Avoid getting your tattoo “soggy” wet.

Avoid hot showers or bath.

Avoid sun exposure.

No anti aging products such as glycolic acids, retinols or glycolic acids to be applied to tattoo. No acne skin care.

No excessive sweating.

No pools or hot tubs.

No facials or other face treatments.

Do not apply anything to tattoo other than the ointment given.

Use your ointment for two weeks. If after two weeks the tattoo seems dry and flaky still, continue to use for a few more days.

See you in 6 to 8 weeks for your touch up!
