After Care - Do's & Dont's

How quickly you heal depends on the size of your tattoo and how intricate it is. Bigger tattoos will stay red and swollen longer.

Ensure you:

  • Keep the tattoo clean. Wash your skin daily with a gentle, unscented soap and lukewarm water.
  • Pat the tattoo dry. Do not rub.
  • Always wash your hands before touching the tattoo whilst it heals.
  • Apply Bepanthen cream 3 times a day to the tattoo.
  • Stay hydrated and drink plenty of water to keep your skin moisturised.
  • Wear SPF clothing so the sun won't fade or discolour your tattoo. Avoid scratchy fabrics, such as wool, which can damage the art.
  • Stay out of the sun until the tattoo is fully healed. Once healed, ensure you cover the tattoo with sunscreen.

You shouldn't:

  • Cover your tattoo with sunscreen until it's fully healed.
  • Scratch or pick at the tattoo.
  • Wear tight clothing over the tattoo.
  • Go swimming or have baths (showers are fine.)
  • Sweat excessively.
  • Scratch the tattoo even if it becomes itchy.
  • Pick or pull of the scabs, let them come off naturally.
