TATTOO AFTERCARE

 

Please Note: Getting your tattoo is only the first step, how you look after it during the healing process can have a huge impact on how it ends up looking. Your body art will be with you for life, you've already been through  the painful part, so proper care is a must for your tattoo to properly heal.

 

  • Keep the new tattoo covered with the Saniderm that the artist applied for 3 days.

  • Remove the Saniderm after 3 days and wash with an antibacterial soap.

  • Pat dry with a clean towel DO NOT RUB.  Leave the tattoo uncovered and apply a thin layer of moisturizing cream.

  • You cannot catch bacteria, it builds up over time, so if your tattoo gets infected, it’s not the fault of the studio, you’re not looking after it properly. Be sure to wash it with antibacterial soap and re-apply a thin layer of moisturizing cream to keep your tattoo moisturized an bright.

  • Repeat this process 2-4 times a day for days 4-7. It’s fine to get your tattoo wet but don’t soak it!

  • After 3-4 days your tattoo will start to scab, be very careful not to pick or knock the scab as this will take the color out with it. A normal tattoo takes 1-2 weeks to heal properly. 

  • Once the scabbing has healed, continue to apply Skin Revolution tattoo care cream regularly. keeping the skin supple and moisturized will reduce itching and allow scabbing and flaking to come away naturally. D

 

While your tattoo is healing DO NOT: Pick it, Sunbathe, Swim, Use perfumes or deodorants on it.

 

Please Note: Some inks will change color or intensity slightly during the healing process. This is quite normal.

Our Skin Revolution tattoo care cream is available from our studio at a discount with your tattoo appointment:
