                                     Helpful Hints

 

 

* Always wash your hands before touching/moisturizing your tattoo

* DO NOT pick or scratch your healing tattoo. This causes ink loss and/or possible infection

* While healing, do not soak or submerge your tattoo, avoid hot tubs, baths and swimming pools.

These activities can adverse effects on your new expensive piece of art

*DO NOT expose your new healing tattoo to direct sunlight. it is a fresh wound and has no UV blocking abilities and will effect your tattooing healing.

* Once your tattoo is fully healed, you must apply sunblock to your healed tattooed when you are in the sun or tanning beds. UV light exposure will fade and age your tattoo faster

*Please DO NOT use any products on a fresh tattoo that wasn't recommended by your artist MAY CAUSE ADVERSE SKIN REACTIONS AND PROLONG HEALING AND RISK OF INFECTIONS AND INK LOSS.

*If your tattoo appears to have a milky film on it, you are moisturizing too much. Cut back on the amount of moisturizer you are using.

* If your tattoo feels overly tight, the scab is cracked, and its extremely uncomfortable, you will want to moisturize your tattoo a little more frequently. Apply enough that your skin is soft and supple but not mushy.
