AFTERCARE

Instructions

  • The aftercare of your tattoo will greatly determine the way your tattoo will look once it has fully healed


  • If your tattoo is bandaged wear your bandage for around 3 hours then remove it & wash the tattoo gently with antibacterial soap


  •  Gently pat dry with paper towel. Do not rub back & forth


  • Apply a very thin layer of cream (hustle butter, bepanthen or cold pressed coconut oil) to your tattoo a few minutes after washing


  •  You will need to wash your tattoo 2 - 3 times a day as above & re-apply cream as above


  •  DO NOT PICK SCABS! This will cause your tattoo to bleed & will pull the ink out of your tattoo


  • Avoid body wash, lotions & soaps that have fragrances


  •  Do not swim or get into a hot tub for a least 2 weeks


  •  Avoid direct exposure to the sun


  • After the tattoo has fully healed you will want to wear sunscreen over it when spending long periods of time in direct sunlight, to keep it looking bright & new. Do not put any sunscreen on a tattoo that hasn’t fully healed


  •  Wear loose clothing over your tattoo while it heals to avoid any rubbing that may pull off scabs


  •  Do not drink before or after getting a tattoo as alcohol thins or blood which means excess bleeding. Drinking after a tattoo can compromise the healing of the tattoo because of its effects on your blood


  • If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to stop by Live Canvas Tattoo or call us on +61 (02) 9966 4676
