Aftercare Guide

LEAVE THE BANDAGE ALONE


After your tattoo is healed, from now on, you will always want to protect it from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. ese can fade and damage a brilliant tattoo very fast. Protect your tattoo with a minimum 30SPF sun block.

WASH & TREAT

After you remove the bandage use lukewarm water to gently wash away your ointment and to completely clean the area. Do not use any washcloth or anything abrasive, your hand is your best tool in this case. en pat (do not rub!) the area with a clean towel or paper towel to get it completely dry. Apply a layer of Bepanthen Cream on your new tattoo. Continue this procedure at least three times a day for two weeks or until your tattoo is healed completely.

SHOWER & BATHS

Try to avoid long showers and baths for at least two weeks: prolonged soaking and soap can cause damage and you will loose too quickly the scabs. is includes swimming, hot tubs, saunas. Scabbing and pee.

SCABBING & PEELING

After a few days you will notice some peeling and possible a little scabbing. It’s normal! You will also start to itch. My advice here is don’t pick and don’t scratch. If it’s peeling put the cream on it and if it’s scabbing leave it alone!

PROTECTION FROM THE SUN
