Caring for your new tattoo!
-Remove cover after 1-2 hours.
-Wash gently with warm soapy water.
-Apply a thin layer of “Bepanthen”, at least 3 times a day, or any time it feels dry.
-Do not pick or scratch! It should start to peel, like sunburn, after about 4 days. Keep applying the cream until it has completely stopped peeling. About 7 – 10 days.
-Shower as much as you like, but do not bathe or go swimming until completely healed.
-For large work it’s not a bad idea to cover it at night while sleeping for the first night or two. This will avoid any excess ink staining your sheets & stop it from drying out too much & forming any scabs.
-Keep it out of the sun. Don’t get it burnt.
-Keep it clean. Don’t let people touch it!
– Always apply sunscreen on your tattoos when you are out in the sun. Long term, the sun is what will fade your tattoo.
