TATTOO AFTER CARE

Things to Avoid While Your Tattoo Heals

  • Don't apply petroleum based products to your new tattoo.

 

  • Do not go swimming at all! Be it a pool or natural body of water, both contain many germs and bacteria which will put your new tattoo at risk of infections.Chlorine in pools can also bleach colour and dry out a new tattoo. AVOID for at least 2-3 weeks.

 

  • Do not soak your new tattoo in the bath tub. This can allow bacteria to penetrate your healing skin and it will soften any scabs you might have that can result in loss of pigment and scarring.

 

  • Avoid exposing your new tattoo to direct sunlight. This can lead to rapid pigment fading and you could easily burn it. A surburnt tattoo is incredibly painful so do plan your appointments at least 2 weeks before or after going on holiday to any hot countries.

 

  • Don't pick at your scabs or scratch/rub your tattoo!

 

  • A healing tattoo is better off too dry than too wet, moisture attracts germs and softens scabs which may make them fall off prematurely. After washing your tattoo be sure to pat it dry with a clean cotton cloth or good quality kitchen roll. Apply your tattoo aftercare cream in a light and even layer and repeat 2-4 times a day or as necessary.
