Tattoo aftercare

Tattoo aftercare
First, wash your hands with soap and water.
If the tattoo is covered with Dermalize / Tegaderm, leave it overnight.
The glue comes off more easily under running lukewarm water!

If the tattoo is covered with plastic wrap, remove it after 3-5 hours.

Wash the tattoo under running water, we recomend perfume-free soap,
such as lacacyd.
Be sure to remove all fluid, as it may otherwise form a thicker scab.
When the tattoo is clean, you can let it air dry for up to 20 minutes.
Lubricate the tattoo with a thin layer of ointment, such as Bepanthen,
Aquaphore or TattooGoo every morning
and evening after you cleaned it.
After a couple of days, a thin scabing usually forms and the tattoo
should flake off, this is completely normal,
it can itch a little, and it is important not to itch or scratch the
healing tattoo.
Also be careful with hand hygiene, your tattoo should be treated like
a wound and can become infected if you are not careful!

Avoid heavy exercise, saunas and swimming until the tattoo is fully
healed, remember to stay away from the sun even when
the tattoo is newly healed because sunbathing can really damage your
new tattoo. Use sunscreen!

You can take short showers, but do not soak the tattoo!
