 Our aftercare instructions to help you with your tattoo healing process. We feel that the first 3 days are the most important in your healing journey.  Below are the steps that will help you get the smoothest healing process.

Step 1: Always have clean hands when working with your tattoo.

There are some things to keep in mind while your tattoo is healing

  • Allergic reactions, Skin infections, and other skin type issues.

  • All activities must be placed on hold for the next 30 days. Activities include but are not limited to; swimming, exercising, interactions with pets, or any activity that will cause the tattoo area to sweat or rub against anything that will cause an infection or cross contaminate and create a transfer of blood or body fluids resulted by the tattoo process.
  •  Keep showers to the shortest duration possible
  • No Picking or scratching the tattoo no matter how itchy it gets. You can pull some ink out of your tattoo. 

*- Signs and symptoms of local or general infection.

  • Some signs may include  symptoms of infection, including, but not limited to, redness, swelling, tenderness of the procedure site, red streaks going from the procedure site towards the heart, elevated body temperature, or purulent drainage from the procedure site.

* -Call a physician if any of the addressed signs and symptoms appears or for any other reason related to the body art procedure.

We recommend aquaphor as our method for keeping your tattoo moisturized. 

Dial antibacterial soap is recommended. This soap is strong enough to remove aquaphor during healing process.
