What You Need to Know
You now have a fresh new tattoo and want to take care of it!
From this point on, your artist is not responsible for any infection or problem you may have with your tattoo if you don’t take proper care of it.
LEAVE THE BANDAGE ALONE
Your artist took the care to cover up your new tattoo for a very good reason.
Leave the bandage on for a minimum of 2 hours.
WASH AND TREAT
After you remove the bandage use lukewarm water to gently wash away any ointment and to completely clean the area. Do not use any washcloth or anything abrasive, your hand is your best tool in this case. Then pat (do not rub!) the area with a clean towel or paper towel to get it completely dry.
Apply a layer of Bepanthen Cream on your new tattoo. Continue this procedure at least three times a day for two weeks or until your tattoo is healed completely.
SHOWERS AND BATHS
Try to avoid long showers and baths for at least two weeks: prolonged soaking and soap can cause damage and you will loose the scabs too quickly. This includes swimming, hot tubs, saunas.
SCABBING AND PEELING
After a few days you will notice some peeling and possibly a little scabbing. It’s normal!
You will also start to itch. The advice here is don’t pick and don’t scratch.
If it’s peeling put the cream on it and if it’s scabbing leave it alone!
PROTECTION FROM THE SUN
After your tattoo is healed, you should always protect it from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. These can fade and damage a brilliant tattoo very rapidly.
Protect your tattoo with a minimum 30SPF sun block.
