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 a tattoo healing 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
