AREOLA TATTOO AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS

Your tattoo may need a touch up appointment depending on your healed results. Body Tattoo sessions include one additional touch up from 4-8 weeks following the first session to make any necessary adjustments and ensure your tattoo has healed properly. Please follow all aftercare instructions carefully to ensure the best results.

The most important thing is to allow your tattoo to heal naturally.

You will need to avoid direct sun on the area for 14 days following your appointment, as well as avoiding them when applying skincare products.

DAYS 1-3: Your tattoo will be covered with a clear adhesive bandage. You may notice blood and ink will 'ooze' from the skin under the bandage, this is normal. On day 3, remove your bandage carefully and slowly with warm water and gentle soap. If there is sticky residue left behind, feel free to gently rub coconut oil on the sticky areas and then wash gently with unscented soap to remove it. Gently pat dry with paper towel and let it be.

DAYS 4-7: Avoid direct sun, rubbing, picking, wearing tight or rough clothing on the area and keep your tattoo clean and dry.

 

DAY 8-14: Apply a small amount of your provided aftercare ointment daily to keep the tattoo moisturized. Avoid direct sun on the area.

DAY 15-30: Your tattoos true colour will be visible and you can fully resume your normal routine. 

Remember to wear sunscreen on your tattoo daily once it is healed if it will be exposed to the sun for more than 15 minutes. This will keep it looking fresh for years to come.
