Remove the protective foil after 3 hours at the latest. Wash the tattoo thoroughly with cold or lukewarm water and use an antibacterial soap. Do not use a washcloth or sponge. Take special care to wash the vaseline thoroughly. Try to shorten the wash as short as possible to avoid subsequent wetting. After washing, dry with a clean towel or napkin.
After washing, do not lubricate with cream. Wear clean, loose and preferably cotton clothing for the night. If the tattoo “sticks” to clothing or bedding, never forcibly tear it off the fabric. Moisten the area with lukewarm water and then slowly separate from the skin.
Always wash regularly the next day and do not lubricate yet. It is necessary to wait until the skin stops draining the lymph.
In the following days, wash the tattoo 2 – 3 times a day. After 2 or 3 days, when it is dry and “pulls” slightly, lubricate it with a thin layer of cream after washing. Do not apply a thick layer – the tattoo must “breathe”. Follow this procedure for the next few days. On the fourth to seventh day, the skin begins to peel and there is no need to wash it regularly anymore. Treat the tattoo with ointment several times a day as needed. Do not peel or scratch the skin in any way, even if the skin itches. It is a sign of natural healing. Tattoos usually heal for 7-10 days.
Due to the risk of possible infection, do not visit the swimming pool, sauna, public swimming pools, the sea, avoid contact with animals and do not expose the skin to direct sunlight or solarium during the first month after the procedure. When staying in the sun, always use a cream with a high protection factor.
After 3 months make an appointment and come for a check-up. If necessary, we will agree on a date for repainting. If you do not make an appointment till this time, we will consider your tattoo to be well healed and without the need for further intervention.
REMEMBER! Due to the effects of time, UV radiation and the natural aging of the skin, the tattoo changes. It is therefore important to take care of tattoos by using creams containing vitamin E.
