It is of the utmost importance that you DO NOT expose your new tattoo to direct sunlight, ESPECIALLY if covered with healing oil or cream. All oils are phototoxic (makes the skin unusually sensitive to light and subject to severe damage by light, e.g. by sunburn) this is very harmful to your skin and exposing it can destroy your tattoo.
CAUTION: May contain very slight nut trace, as the oil version is blended in a Sweet Almond base.
TAKE CARE OF YOUR TATTOO
Listen to your Artist
The best way to properly care for you new artwork is to listen to your tattoo artist and follow the directions that they have given you on their instruction sheet. You might get lots of advice from family members, friends and co-workers but it’s your tattoo artist’s instructions that matter the most. While the internet is full of advice it can vary greatly and what might be okay for one individual may not be the same for you. Your tattoo artist knows your tattoo, it’s placement and your own skin condition and so they will know what will work best for you.
Patience is the Key
Tattoos in general take approximately 4 to 6 weeks to fully heal. Some sections of your tattoo might heal slower than other parts and that can even be said, for example on a small tattoo on the wrist. A professional tattoo artist can tell when a tattoo is healed.
The Basics For Healing A Tattoo
When you remove the bandage you must wash it with soap and slightly warm water immediately. Do this when you are at home. Get a fragrance free soap or a soap that is mild and for sensitive skin. Take your time washing your tattoo and remove excess ink and body fluids from the tattoo. Never use wash cloths or sponges. Dry the tattoo by gently patting it with a paper towel or a clean bathroom towel. Let it air dry after that. PLEASE apply aftercare once dried to avoid scabbing and give it the protection and healing required.
Be sure to listen to your aftercare advice and leave with your instruction leaflet, which should be given to you by our piercer.
