AFTERCARE

***please inform me of any allergies/sensitivities prior to tattooing you.***

 

Between 8-24 hours after the tattoo procedure, remove the wrapping in the shower or under running water.

Gently wash with warm water and an antibacterial unscented liquid soap and air dry the area completely.

- Do not pat or rub.

- Do not use bar soaps

once air dried, apply a second piece of the recovery wrap that has been supplied to you.

-remove the white backing

-place onto the skin gently pushing out any air bubbles starting at the center of your tattoo

- peel back the plus sign top of the wrap starting at the orange arrow crease

leave the second wrapping on your tattoo for 4-6 days

-repeat the removal as stated above

 

Gently apply a thin layer of unscented lotion or other suggested product with clean hands

- 3- 4 times a day until healed. 

 

Stay away from the beach, sunlight, swimming pools, baths, and tanning booths until your tattoo is completely healed completely. (14 days minimum).

- Do not soak or submerge your tattoo; no bathing or swimming, etc, until your tattoo is healed

- Showers are fine. 

- Do not rub or pick the area while it is healing. Loss of color/irritation/scarring/infection could occur. 

- Extreme sun exposure over the years can and will fade your tattoo. This can be minimized by using a          strong sunscreen daily, at least SP25 once the tattoo is healed

 

Your tattoo should look healed in approximately 2 weeks. FULL HEAL IS APPROX 4 WEEKS. Remember everyone is different:)

 

NOTE: Avoid tight fitting clothing for 2 weeks. If your tattoo becomes stuck to fabric such as
your clothing or bed sheets, it is important not to rip the fabric off. First wet the fabric, and then gently lift if from the tattoo
