THE AFTERCARE PROCESS IS AS IMPORTANT AS THE TATTOOING PROCESS.
PLEASE FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY.
The tattooist will dress your new tattoo with cling film. Leave this on for a couple of hours.
On removal of the dressing gently wash the tattoo with plenty of warm/hot water and mild soap, pat dry with a clean towel and re-dress with fresh cling film. The following morning remove the dressing and gently wash the tattoo, again with warm water and mild soap. Pat dry with a clean towel. Once dry you can now lightly apply Bepanthen cream onto your tattoo. Repeat this process several times daily. This will aid the healing process and stop your tattoo from drying out. You can also re-wrap your tattoo with cling film each evening before going to bed to keep it from sticking to your bedclothes.
DO NOT: rub, pick or scratch your new tattoo as this disrupts the tattoo as its healing and can cause scar tissue.
AVOID: swimming, sunbathing, saunas and long baths for 2 weeks.
If you have any questions about the healing process don’t hesitate to call us at Body Garden Tattoo on 0121 643 2505
