Aftercare Recommendation

What to expect:

Your tattoo will take about 45 days to heal. It will be tender for the first few days, then it will develop light scabs and appear crusty, these will gradually flake off. During this period the tattoo may look ugly and it may seem that the color is falling out with the scabs. Don’t worry, this is normal. The last stage is when the tattoo looks healed but is still waxy or shiny on the surface. The directions below should be followed until the tattoo is fully healed.



Dry Healing

Remove the cling once you reach home and do not re-bandage it.

Wash your hands, then wash the tattoo gently using mineral water or sterile water, rinse the tattoo off and pat dry. NO SCRUBBING! Each day keep the area clean and never let anyone else touch it.

For the ENTIRE period that the tattoo is healing don't apply Vaseline, baby oil, alcohol, alcohol based products, peroxide, mineral oil, bag balm, Vitamin E, Aloe, Noxzema, natural remedies, etc. Many people have strong reactions to it and often times it actually pulls the colour out during the healing process.

Dermalizer Healing 

You have to maintain the derma mandatory for 7 days There should not be any water flow or an moisture (sweat) over the tattooed area or inside the derma There should not be any sweat activities (gymming, jogging, brisk walking) during these 7 days of derma process Keep the area clean and never let anyone else touch it. For the ENTIRE period of tattoo healing stay away from the pets


Recommended Lotions:

After 7 days you can apply TATWAX or any mild lotion on your tattoo On rare occasions some people may develop a reaction to one of these wax. You will know if you develop bumps or pimples around the area. This is not a problem, wash the area . Do not continue using lotion or wax if you have a reaction.


Do’s and Don’ts:

You can shower as normal, but for the 30 days healing period do not apply any sort of body shower gel or body soap, submerge or soak your tattoo in any way. No gym, swimming, hot tubs, or saunas. It will interfere with healing and can cause infections and scarring.

Do not expose your tattoo to direct sunlight for the 30 days period. Keep it covered with clothing. Do not pick at the tattoo! Let the scabs fall off naturally. No scratching, rubbing or abuse to the tattoo in any manner.

Once your tattoo is healed, you may go in the sun but keep in mind the sun rapidly fades your tattoo and if you plan on being in the sun, use sunscreen to protect it. Don’t use sunscreen for at least a month after getting a tattoo and try to test an area to make sure you don’t have a reaction.


Important notice:

Despite constant efforts to ensure all our pigments meet the highest standard of quality and purity, the application of some pigments to some individuals may cause an allergic reaction, due to the sensitivity of the person. A Tattoo Studio and whoever it may designate as it’s operators, disclaim any responsibility for an allergic reaction of any person to whom the pigment is applied. The tattoo is not guaranteed when you leave the studio. We have given you the very best in art, the very best in colour and the tattoo was applied expertly under the most sterile conditions. You are responsible for its care in the next few days.

Follow these guidelines and enjoy your new tattoo!
