TATTOO AFTER CARE
INITIAL AFTER CARE
You new tattoo will be wrapped at the end of your appointment.
Please remove the wrap no later than 30-60 minutes after your session ends.
Rinse your tattoo with warm water (no soap) and pat dry gently with a clean towel.
DO NOT apply any cream for the first two days and DO NOT re-wrap your tattoo.
SECOND DAY ONWARDS
On the second day you may start to apply tattoo aftercare cream. We recommended using Dr Pickles Tattoo Balm. Apply the cream before bed only and make sure to use a super thin/light layer. DO NO smother your tattoo in cream, light layers only.
Continue this process 2-3 times a day until your tattoo has healed.
WHAT TO AVOID WHILE YOUR TATTOO HEALS
Please avoid the following for at least two weeks after or until your tattoo is fully healed:
No swimming in chlorine or salt water.
Any sun exposure within the healing period can see oily damage or infect your new tattoo.
Make sure you tattoo is clear from all pet hair around the house.
Avoid your animals jumping / rubbing / licking ect your new tattoo.
Try to avoid excessive sweating or movement in the area of your tattoo.
For example don’t complete an arm workout at the gym if you just got your arm tattooed.
Avoid all tight clothing that would irritate or rub on the area of you new tattoo.
Wear loose clothes to let your tattoo breath and heal.
