After finishing your tattoo, your artist will use a bandage called "second skin", on your new tattoo. Thanks to your bandage you can mostly go on with your normal life. The bandage is water-resistant, so you can freely shower. But you should still try avoiding direct water to the tattooed area, because water can sometimes find it's way into the bandage.

We recommend that you should keep the bandage on for 3 to 4 days. During this time you'll notice that there is moisture under your bandage. That is perfectly normal! The moisture you see, is plasma created by your body, mixed with micro fragments of ink. This is actually your body helping the healing process.

While removing the bandage, we recommend that you peel it off under warm running water and afterwards clean/dry it by dabbing (don't rub) the area with a clean soft towel.

If the bandage starts coming off before the 3 days, please remove it carefully. Clean the area with pH-neutral soap and start using your tattoo cream immediately.

(You can also contact our studio for further information)

For approximately 10 to 12 days after the bandage removal, use a tattoo cream 3 to 6 times a day (whenever you feel the area is dry). Wash your hands before applying the tattoo cream, to avoid inflammation. Apply a thin layer over the area. Just enough to cover it, avoid overusing it.

This could cause harm to the healing process.

Try wearing loose cloths over your tattoo during your healing process. Avoid intensive exercise for at least 2 weeks. Abrasive clothing, and sweat can cause irritation, additional scarring and even infections!

Avoid submerging your tattoo in water (swimming, long baths, showers) or exposing it to direct sunlight, until it's fully healed (at least 6 weeks). Water exposure can cause serious and life-threatening infections!

Direct sunlight could dry the area and could cause the color to fade.
