Tattoo Aftercare

Congratulations with you new tattoo!

Things to do:

After getting a tattoo, leave the bandage/ foil on for 2-4 hours.
Then wash you hands wild a mild, non perfumed soap (PH neutral)
Remove the bandage carefully
Wash the tattoo with the same mild, non perfumed soap.
Make sure you rinse all the soap off again
Pat dry with a clean towel or soft paper towel. DON’T RUB IT
If your skin gets very dry you can put abit of an anti-scarring product on it. Use only new tubes and only for yourself (the less you use the better)
Wash your hands again.

For the next 10 days you will need to clean your tattoo this exact same way.
The first 4 days 2x a day, the last 6 days 1x a day will be sufficient.

After some days your tattoo might have some small scabs/flakes. Don’t rub them off.
Usually the tattoo will itch while healing. DON’T SCRATCH

Within 2-4 weeks your tattoo has healed

Things NOT to do:
Don’t touch your tattoo with dirty hands
Don’t wear tight clothing on it
And preferrably wear coton instead of synthetic and wool fabrics.
Don’t go into the sun or even shade with your tattoo
Avoid sunlight on your tattoo for at least 4 weeks
Don’t go swimming or bathing or in the sauna
Don’t put any band-aid on your tattoo

How to keep your tattoo looking good:
Always put a high protection suncream on your tattoo while sunbathing (to keep the colors bright)

You can always come back for a check-up!
If you have any questions or uncertainties about your tattoo, please let us know.
If you experience extreme redness, severe pain, swelling or pus you need to contact a doctor.
