It is advised you eat a hearty meal and drink plenty of water before your tattoo. Getting tattooed takes a toll on your body's energy, so make sure you're fueled up to avoid feeling sick or dizzy. If you're going for a longer session, bring drinks and snacks or plan on grabing something near the shop during a break. We want you feeling great for your entire tattoo experience!
All clients must be excited and ready to rock!
First of all, thank you for being our canvas for this new piece of artwork.
To ensure your tattoo heals in the most desirable matter, we suggest you follow these instructions.
After you’ve left the shop leave that bandage on for at least 3 hours! A tattoo is an open wound that is most susceptible to bacteria and infection when it’s fresh. Try to take your bandage off within 5-8 hours and clean it thoroughly right away. Your tattoo may be sore and swollen but that should go away within a few days.
Every time you clean your tattoo make sure your hands are clean! Use lukewarm water and an unscented antibacterial soap such as Dial Gold or Antibacterial SoftSoap using your hands or a wet paper towel. Do not use a washcloth or anything abrasive. Do not use alcohol to clean your tattoo. Make sure you wash it well and let it dry completely before adding a thin layer of Aquaphor or A&D ointment. Tattoo healing products such as Hustle Butter or Tattoo Goo are also acceptable. Refrain from using Vaseline, Neosporin, and scented lotions.
It’s very important you don’t let your tattoo dry out!
Clean and reapply ointment to your tattoo 3 times a day for the first 3-5 days of healing (the most significant days of taking good care). After, make sure your tattoo has a thin layer of ointment on it and stays clean for the rest of the two weeks of healing. Everyone heals differently - some may take a full month to heal while some take about a week.
After a few days your tattoo will probably go through an ugly phase of peeling and perhaps even scabbing. This is completely normal. DO NOT PICK OR SCRATCH IT! Pieces of your tattoo can flake off if you rub it the wrong way, so let it do its thing. Putting more ointment on it can help alleviate the itch.
Yes, you can shower with it and get it wet. Just don’t use anything abrasive or scented on it while it’s healing. Pools, hot tubs, lakes, or ponds are a no-go, they can cause damage and possibly infection to your tattoo. Saltwater exposure is okay, but be sure to not submerge it for too long and clean and reapply ointment immediately after.
Keep sun exposure to a minimum. The sun can make your tattoo fade and discolor very quickly. After your tattoo is done healing, make sure to use sunblock when out in the sun to preserve its vibrancy.
If you have any other questions or concerns about the healing process, please contact us.
