TATTOO AFTERCARE

  • Remove the bandage (cling wrap) two to three hours after being tattooed, and wash your tattoo in clean, warm water, using mild soap. Rinse and lightly pat dry, removing excess water.

 

  • We recommend using Bepanthen antiseptic cream or REDEMPTION aftercare cream, but do not overuse. Allow skin to still breathe. Apply a light layer of cream and re-wrap. Change wrapping again after another two to three hours. Follow this process once more before bed, and sleep with it wrapped overnight. Recommended wrapping time is 12 - 24 hours.

 

  • When you feel the skin is drying out, apply the cream and massage in well with clean hands. Repeat as necessary to keep your tattoo only very slightly moist, generally three times a day

 

  • Do not pick, scratch or rub at a new tattoo, or wear tight or dirty clothing over your tattoo, as this will slow healing time and may lead to secondary infections.

 

  • Avoid swimming in chlorinated or salt water until healed. Soaking a new tattoo in any form of water will degrade the newly formed scab, prolonging healing time and most likely causing damage to your tattoo.

 

  • Avoid direct and continual sunlight on your new tattoo, and do not use tanning beds or apply fake tan while your tattoo is healing.

 

  • Contact your tattoo artist if you have any questions regarding the healing of your tattoo.

 

  • If you experience, any irritated, red, itchy or sore parts of your tattoo, consult your doctor and tattoo artist.

 

  • We recommend and stock REDEMPTION aftercare cream in both our studios. USDA approved and 100% organic, this cream is designed to perfectly heal your tattoo. Three sizes to choose from, and available for purchase in our studios.
