Tattoo Aftercare

Treat your tattoo like an open wound – That is what it is!

No cleansers, makeup, swimming, spas, or direct water on the area until peeling has finished.

INITIAL 12 Hours after tattoo– Wipe over with damp cotton round to remove any lymph fluid!

When washing dab area with water, gently. It is absolutely necessary to keep applying cream to keep the area moist.

You will be supplied with your aftercare cream at your first appointment. 

It will be 2-3 weeks before the true colour appears and becomes translucent.

For some clients it is perfect, others it may be too light, or patchy in some areas. If this is happening, you are able to apply colour until your scheduled top up.
