Take care of your tattoo

What do I need to do after my tattoo session?
After your tattoo, keep wrap on for 2-3 hours, as soon as wrap is removed, shower and wash with hot soapy water. Pat your tattoo dry with a clean towel. Apply a thin layer of aftercare cream 2 – 3 times per day for 2 weeks.
How long does it take to heal?
Generally a tattoo will take 2 weeks to heal completely, however this may be slightly longer or shorter depending on the size of the tattoo.
Do I need to purchase any aftercare products?
We recommend purchasing an aftercare cream to support the healing process of your new tattoo. Cream should be applied 2-3 times per day for 2 weeks while your tattoo heals.
What should I avoid while my tattoo is healing?
Please do not go swimming or submerge the tattoo in water (eg. Baths, saunas). Showers are fine and are part of the healing process. Avoid direct sunlight and don’t get sunburnt. Sunscreen is not recommended during the healing process, however it is highly recommended once your tattoo is healed to prolong the life of your tattoo.
