Do keep your new tattoo clean at all times. Gently pat dry after cleaning and only apply after-care cream to the skin once it has been allowed to air-dry for at least 30 minutes. Apply Bepanthen Cream sparingly each day. Use an SPF 30+ sunscreen when outdoors once your tattoo has fully healed.
Don’t soak, swim or bathe for long periods while your tattoo is healing. Showers are fine. Don’t scratch, pick or rub the healing tattoo. It will get itchy but resist the urge or you could cause scarring! Don’t expose the area to sunlight whilst healing. If you have any questions or concerns about your healing tattoo, please don’t hesitate to call.
We will explain how to look after your tattoo at the end of your tattoo session. We will also provide you with an aftercare sheet with instructions that you can reference once you leave the studio. If you have any concerns about healing in the days or weeks following your tattoo, please give us a call and we’ll happily answer any questions you may have.
