Tattoo After Care

The Basics

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR NEW TATTOO

  • Leave wrapping on over night, until the following morning.

  • Remove wrapping the morning after. Gently wash the area in the shower using an anti-bacterial soap.

  • Allow the tattoo to breath during the day. Only wrap during the day if you are in an unclean/vulnerable environment or job.

  • Wrap the tattoo in cling wrap for the next 1-2 nights (do not moisturise before wrapping at night).

  • Begin moisturising using 'Palmers cocoa butter' 1-2 days after the tattoo session, when you feel the tattooed area is dry/tight.

  • Moisturise and clean the tattooed area regularly each day. Keep up with the moisturising for the next 3-6 weeks, until the tattoo feels fully healed and flat to the skin.

  • Do not itch, pick or peel the healing tattoo and keep out of the sun until fully healed.

  • Towards the end of healing, when the skin appears shiny, you can begin using coconut oil or bio oil to complete the healing process.
