What To Expect When Healing 

Day 1: Swelling, Tenderness & Redness 

Immediately after your appointment the area may appear slightly irritated, swollen or red. Over the next couple of hours as the numbing wears off, the area may begin to feel tender, Similar to the feeling of a sunburn or cat scratch. This feeling will subside within 4-12hrs. 

Day 2-4: Darkening & Solidifying Around day two, your skin will begin to appear darker and more solid due to oxidization of the skin. The skin will continue to darken until day 4. It is important not to panic, as this is part of the scabbing process.  

You may also experience itching of the area during this time. To relieve the itching, tapping over the area is okay, but do not scratch! 

Day 5-10: Flaking or Scabbing 

Around day 5 your skin will begin the scabbing phase. The scabbing my look varying colours of red or pink, as well as whatever colours of tattoo pigment or ink that we are attempting to remove. The skin may look pink or red underneath where the scabbing lifts. This is normal. It is okay for the scabs to come off when rinsing the skin, but it is important to never pick or pull at them. 

Day 10 - 14: Skin may appear darker, red, pink or light depending on sessions required 

Around day 10 to 14 the scabbing will be complete. Once all of the scabbing has lifted off, it is normal for the skin to look quite light, or be darker or red in colour. This is because even though the surface of the skin is healed, the opacity of the skin is not. If we are removing colour that is deep within the skin, it may appear darker as it is pulled to the surface through multiple sessions, but will be lightening more with each additional session. Our lighting technique involves osmosis, meaning we are slowly working the pigment or ink upwards and out of the skin through multiple sessions. Each client's healing process and results will vary.
