Tattoo Aftercare Sheet


This  sheet is to advise  you  about the importance and  methods  of caring for your new tattoo.The  after-care  process  is very important to the  proper healing and ultimate “success” of your tattoo. We did a good  job of creating your tattoo; please don’t mess it up by being lazy and notfollowing these recommendations. A newly rendered  tattoo needs special care :

First : wash your hands  and apply the Hibiclens (antibacterial soap)  over the tattooed area. The Hibiclens should remove  all the unnecessary clotted blood-ink mixture along the potencial source of  infections and keeps the tattoo moisturized at  the same time.  Rinse the area well with lukewarm  (room temperature)  runningwater.  Don’t wash more than 2 times a day nor use the Hibiclens more than 3-4 days.  I suggest keeping it in the bathroom and using it every time  you take a shower.  After cleaning the tattoo, pat dry and rub the Aquaphor Healing Ointment over the tattooed part of your skin. It helps to protect  the  sensitive  skin  and reduce irritation.  Apply Aquaphour 3-4 times a day in a very light coat. Otherwise, you might get a reaction caused by the clogged skin pores.The skin needs to breathe.  Applying the  Aquaphor right  will help  to keep  the  skin sufrace  soft  and  prevent infection  and  drying  out.   After  the  peeling  period,  you  can  start  using  our  100% natural Tattoo Lotion.  By that time  the skin surface over  the tattoo  should be  healed  and  closed. A tattoo is much the  same as a  minor  cut or  any  other  skin  surface injury.  It is made up of thousands  &  thousands  of  pinpriscks, which will result in  a scab or crust.  If you let the crust to dry out or  crack open  and bleed, the blood may wash the ink out.  In this case the tattooed design will appear freckled.  This is not the tattoo artist ‘s fault.  It  is your responsibility to  take care of the tattoo when it is fresh to maintain the applied pigmentation correctly.

The most important things to do ( and not to do ) for perfect healing are as follows:

- Remove  bandage  in 3  hours.  Do not  re-bandage ! The bandage may stick into the scab and reopen the scabbed skin surface.  If fabric gets stuck to the tattooed area ( especially night time ), wet it and pull the cloth away slowly and gently.

- Do not  soak  the  tattoo  in  water !  Do not swim  or  soak in a tub ! Soaking may result in freckling. Preferably,  take  a  quick  shower and apply Aquaphour.

- Avoid getting sunburned! This includes  natural sun and tanning  lamps  too.This does not cause damage in the quality of tattoo; it’s  just extremely painful. It adds to the discomfort and delays healing.

Note : Continue the above care until the scab begins to come off. This peeling process means that the underlying layer  of skin  is closed  and no longer likely to be damaged  by normal activity  like washing. Itching is a sign of healing. The new “baby” skin beneath  the scab is fragile and shouldn’t be scratched with fingernails.  If you must “scratch”,  rub  the area  lightly with your fingertips.  The tattoo may also appear slightly blurry at first. As the skin strengthens and ages, the color and lines of the tattoo will become  sharper.  Depending  on your  skin type,  the entire healing process  may take  5-10 days. Some sensitive types of skin may develop irritation or react to the ointment. In this case  substitute  another  kind of ointment or switch to our  lotion. When healing is complete,  your tattoo  will  require  no further  special  care. The  complete  healing  period,  which  allows  all  the damaged  skin  layers  to  build up  and  the body settles the ink down. may take up to 3-4 months.

If you feel you need some “polishing” work on your tattoo or you have any further questions,
problems or complaints, feel free to contact us.
