TATTOOS

TATTOO AFTERCARE

Walk-In Wednesdays are now open 11am -5pm
 

The First 48 Hours

Gently, wash the tattoo with warm water and a mild, unscented soap, taking care to rinse off any residue. Pat dry using a clean paper towel, and allow to air dry for a few minutes.

Always thoroughly clean the tattoo after bandage removal. You may begin to apply a thin layer of an unscented, water-based moisturizer once it starts to itch or become tight.

After getting a tattoo, it's normal to see some redness and swelling. Your skin will feel sore, and you may see clear fluid oozing from your new tattoo. As your skin heals, it can itch and flake

 

The Next Weeks

Remember to only use the lotion if the tattoo feels dry, tight or itchy – too little lotion is better than too much. Do not pick or scratch at the tattoo during healing. Do not swim or soak the tattoo during healing, and keep the tattoo out of direct sunlight.

After healing is complete (it can sometimes take 5 days to four weeks time), protect the tattoo with sunscreen to keep the tattoo looking crisp. Any deviation from these instructions will void your free touch-up, should you need one. Happy healing!
