AFTERCARE

  • IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING YOUR PROCEDURE, THE TATTOOED AREA WILL APPEAR TO BE DARKER AND BOLDER IN COLOR AND MORE SHARPLY DEFINED. THIS WILL HAPPEN FOR THE 2-3 DAYS AFTER THE FIRST APPOINTMENT.

  • SWELLING AND REDNESS IS MINIMAL WITH MOST CLIENTS, AND WILL DISAPPEAR WITHIN 24-48 HOURS.  

  • WASH YOUR HANDS THOROUGHLY BEFORE TOUCHING THE TATTOOED AREA.

  • KEEP THE TATTOOED AREA CLEAN BY RINSING WITH LUKEWARM WATER AND PATTING DRY WITH A DISPOSABLE PAPER TOWEL 3 TIMES A DAY.

  • AVOID ANY KIND OF MOISTURIZER, OIL AND VASELINE FOR THE FIRST TWO WEEKS. ONLY APPLY A VERY SMALL AMOUNT OF THE PROVIDED OINTMENT IN THE MORNING AFTER CLEANING THE AREA WITH WARM WATER. APPLY USING A DISPOSABLE COTTON SWAB. THE GOAL IS TO HAVE YOUR TATTOO FLAKE OFF NATURALLY, RATHER THAN FORM INTO LARGE SCABS. YOU MAY USE THE OINTMENT FOR THE FIRST 7 TO 14 DAYS.

  • DO NOT PICK OR SCRATCH AT THE DRY SKIN/FLAKINESS; LET THE SKIN FALL OFF NATURALLY. PICKING CAN CAUSE SCARRING AND PREMATURE LOSS OF PIGMENT. IMPORTANT: ONCE THE FLAKES HAVE FALLEN OFF, A SHINY LAYER OF HEALING SKIN WILL COMPLETELY COVER THE AREA. IT WILL APPEAR AS THOUGH THE TATTOO IS GONE. WITHIN 1-2 WEEKS, THE TATTOO WILL SLOWLY REAPPEAR AT A LIGHTER SHADE AS YOUR SKIN REGENERATES. 

  • DO NOT APPLY MAKE-UP TO THE TATTOOED AREA FOR THE FIRST 2 WEEKS. CHEMICALS OF ANY KIND MAY INTERFERE WITH THE HEALING AND COLOR OF YOUR TATTOO.

  • ONCE THE TREATED AREA IS COMPLETELY HEALED, ANY CHANGES OR ADDITIONS THAT NEED TO BE MADE CAN BE DONE AT YOUR FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENT.

  • AVOID SUN EXPOSURE TO TREATMENT AREA.
