Tattoo Aftercare Instruction Guide
Considering that tattoos are made to last a lifetime, the recovery period is fairly swift — the initial healing process lasts only about a week. However, skin needs up to 20-25 days to fully heal once the tattoo is done. While a tattoo is healing, proper care can help prevent infection and preserve its appearance in the long run.
STEP 1 (Basic Care)
Remove the bandage within the next 1 hour and clean the tattoo with water.
once cleaned, pat the tattoo dry with tissue paper (No Cotton or Cloth) then apply a thin coat of an antiseptic cream in Circular motion as explained in the studio for about a minute, then dab off the excess layer of cream. (The tattoo should not be too wet or dry, it should be adequately moist, do not over medicate it).
Keep the tattoo open and DO NOT re-bandage it again.
Follow the cream application procedure for the next 10 days, thrice a day.
STEP 2 (Shower Tips)
whenever you go for a shower apply a thin coat of a Vaseline gel over the tattoo so that it does not get wet.
Do not try to clean the tattoo during a shower, follow the cleaning procedure post shower. Make sure you don’t take too long for your showers keep them short.
