Tattoo Aftercare

Remove dressing and wash tattoo with warm/hot soapy water.

Remove all excess ink and plasma on the surface of the skin.

Pat dry with a clean towel and apply a small amount of Bepanthen to the area and cover the tattoo with a plastic wrap on the first night only.

Wash twice a day and apply Bepanthen for one week, 3 times a day.

For the second week apply a moisturiser or oil consistently and do not pick or scratch the tattoo. Keep it out of the sun for 2 weeks and no swimming or baths (fine to shower).
