HEALING

The aftercare of your tattoo is absolutely imperative to its future with you.   We can put a stunning piece of artwork on you but the care that it needs to maintain its lifelong appearance is entirely up to you.  We cannot express how important it is that you look after it to ensure you do not jeopardise your art worked skin in any way.  To ensure the best healing process we commissioned a Professional and highly qualified Aromatherapist to create an exclusive blend to focus on the exact tattoo healing requirements. These healing products are specific to be skin cell regenerating and restorative. Our products are 100% pure and their properties include essential oils that comprise the following medicinal properties:

 

Anti-inflammatory (lessens inflammation)

Analgesic (Pain relieving)

Antiseptic (Controls infection)

Antibiotic (Inactivates bacteria)

Cytophylactic (Promotes skin cell regeneration)

Detoxicant (Neutralises toxic substances)

Emollient (Soothes & softens the skin)

Vulnerary (Prevents tissue degeneration and arrests bleeding in wounds. Maintains normal skin health)

Vitamin A&B (Promotes skin healing and reduces scarring)

 

 

You should be given an aftercare instruction by your tattooist or our takeaway ‘aftercare’ card (If not please request one).  Please follow the instructions precisely to avoid any decimation of your new tattoo.

 

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

AFTERCARE

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.
