TATTOO AFTERCARE

 

Once you have acquired your new tattoo it is your responsibility to look after it.
It is normal for the surrounding skin to look red this will subside after a few hours.
After a day or two it will start to scab.  DO NOT: pick, rub or scratch the scab as it can result in some loss of colour and you will have to return to have the tattoo touched up.

You may bath/shower as normal but try not to over soak the scab pat dry.  Your tattoo will heal in approximately 10 days.

You can apply a light Bepanthen cream twice daily.  Do not swim for about a week.
Once your tattoo has healed you MUST apply total sun block to the tattoo when sunbathing or using tanning beds.
