TATTOO AFTER- CARE

Updated: Feb 28, 2023




YOUR NEW TATTOO WAS CAREFULLY CREATED BY A PROFESSIONAL TO ENSURE A GREAT QUALITY, WHAT COMES NEXT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. THE HEALING PROCESS IS AS IMPORTANT AS THE TATTOO PROCEDURE, SO PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW TO AVOID ANY INCONVENIENCE AT IT AND TO GUARANTEE MAXIMUM RESULTS.


1. IF USING SANIDERM (SECOND-SKIN), TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THAT DURING THE FIRST HOURS AFTER THE TATTOO PROCEDURE, THE SKIN EXPELS PLASMA (BLOOD & INK). DEPENDING ON HOW MUCH PLASMA COMES OUT OF IT, YOU MAY LEAVE THE SANIDERM FROM 1 (TOO MUCH PLASMA) TO 4- 6 DAYS (FEW PLASMA).


2. REMOVE THE SANIDERM WITH WARM WATER, PREFERABLY WHILE YOU ARE TAKING A SHOWER, WITH EXTREME CARE TRYING TO AVOID ANY HARM TO YOUR SKIN.


3. WASH YOUR TATTOO WITH CLEAN HANDS, WARM WATER, AND LIQUID ANTIBACTERIAL SOAP (DO NOT USE BAR SOAP). DRY IT BY PATING WITH A CLEAN PAPER TOWEL.


4. STARTING THE THIRD DAY, AFTER WASHING IT, APPLY A THIN LAYER OF REGULAR UNSCENTED, UNCOLORED HYDRATING CREAM (IE. AQUAPHOR, LUBRIDERM, COCOA BUTTER, OR THE TATTOO AFTER-CARE GIVEN BY THE ARTIST).


5. REPEAT STEP 4 THREE TIMES A DAY FOR THE FIRST WEEK, OR AFTER ANY TIME YOUR TATTOO IS EXPOSED TO DIRT, HEAVY SWEATING, OR ANY FOREIGN ELEMENTS (TATTOOS ARE LIKE AN OPEN WOUND, YOU HAVE TO AVOID ANY RISK OF INFECTION).


* WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT FOR HEALING IS HOW CLEAN AND PROTECTED THE TATTOO IS DURING THE HEALING PROCESS.


** AFTER THE FIRST WEEK YOU MAY EXPERIENCE ITCHING IN THE TATTOO AREA, WHICH IS COMPLETELY NORMAL. DO NOT PICK AT IT OR SCRATCH IT. BE GENTLE!


6. NO SWIMMING, SOAKING, OR SUNTANNING FOR AT LEAST 2 WEEKS FROM THE PROCEDURE. THESE ARE THE MOST CRUCIAL DAYS FOR THE HEALING PROCESS.


7. AVOID DIRECT SUNLIGHT! AFTER THE SECOND WEEK, START USING SUNBLOCK ON YOUR TATTOO TO KEEP YOUR INK PROTECTED, SUN IS THE WORST ENEMY WHEN IT COMES TO TATTOO FADING OVER THE YEARS AND SUNBLOCK IS GOOD OVERALL FOR YOUR SKIN CARE (PREVENTS SKIN CANCER).


8. FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS TO ENSURE MAXIMUM HEALING RESULTS, DO NOT FOLLOW WHAT YOUR BROTHER, SISTER, MOTHER, COUSIN, GOOGLE, TELLS YOU TO DO WITH YOUR TATTOO. DIFFERENT ARTISTS, DIFFERENT PROCEDURES, DIFFERENT RECOMMENDATIONS.


9. FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME IF YOU HAVE ANY MORE QUESTIONS. ANY DEVIATION FROM THIS HEALING METHOD WOULD MEAN THAT ANY TOUCH UPS NEEDED ON THE TATTOO ARE AT YOUR EXPENSE.


10. ENJOY YOUR NEW TATTOO AND PLEASE SEND ME A PICTURE ONCE ITS HEALED!
