Aftercare

 

General Care
Your tattoo was done with sterile equipment in a clean, safe and council licensed/registered environment. Once you leave the studio, it is your responsibility to care for it. If you follow the guidelines below, your tattoo should stay as bright and sharp as when it was first done. If you feel your tattoo needs any areas re-working or have any issues with the healing, please return to us and we will do whatever we can to help.

 

After 2-3 hours wash your hands, then remove and dispose of the cover from your tattoo and wash with lukewarm water and mild antibacterial soap (a soap or hand wash designed with sensitive skin is ideal) then rinse with cold water.

 

Pat/dab the tattoo gently with a clean towel or clean tissue – do not rub or scrub your fresh/healing tattoo, and allow air to dry. Gently apply and massage a thin layer of Palmers Cocoa Butter/coconut oil (available from most chemists, supermarkets, and here) As a rule of thumb, if you can’t see your tattoo, you have put too much cream on, use a clean tissue to remove any excess. Putting too much cream on will stop air getting to your tattoo and hinder healing. It is strongly recommended to use a new, unopened tube of Palmers Cocoa Butter/coconut oil to ensure sterility.

 

Repeat this procedure (wash/dry/apply) 2-3 times a day for 10-14 days (or until the tattoo has healed). Tattoos will often look faded or ‘milky’ as your skin repairs itself, but once any scabbing or dryness subsides, it will brighten up. Once the shiny ‘new skin’ is coming through, an unfragranced moisturiser (such as E45) can be used to help speed up the repair of the skin and stop the skin around your tattoo feeling dry and tight.

Do’s and Donts
DO return to your tattooist, or contact us as soon as possible if you think there is a problem, or if you are unsure of how to care for your tattoo, we will do all we can to help.
DO protect your tattoo with a cover if working in a dirty/dusty/greasy environment (cling film is ideal) but make sure you change the covering regularly (every 2-3 hours) and repeat the steps above.
DO wear loose clothing on the necessary area while healing.
DO allow your tattoo to fully heal before getting tattooed again in that area.
DO keep your tattoo out of the sun until it is healed (no sunbathing!)
DO apply sunblock to healed tattoos when out in the sun to prevent fading.
DON’T pick or scratch the tattoo while it is healing.
DON’T allow anyone else to touch your tattoo.
DON’T touch your tattoo with dirty hands.
DON’T use sunbeds or swimming pools or apply products like fake tan while your tattoo is healing.
