Instructions for caring for a tattoo after application:

After that, you need to remove it and wash the work with water from the allocated sucrose, it is good to use antibacterial or baby soap. Redness of the work will last a couple of days, perhaps a slight allocation of paint, this is completely normal.
  2. After you have washed the tattoo with soap, you need to get your work wet with an antibacterial compress with a solution of chlorhexidine bigluconate.
  3. Dry the work with a napkin or clean! towel, gently wetting it, in no case do not rub and do not rub roughly.
  4. Apply a thin layer of healing ointment.
  5. If your tattoo will not be exposed to the external environment in the coming hours, such as: direct contact with clothing, sunlight, dust or dirt, then you can let the work "breathe" and not wrap it with a diaper, in all other cases it is necessary to isolate the work from unnecessary irritation and bacteria and microbes, with a diaper or non-woven roll towels, which can be fixed with a band-aid or tape.
  6. At night, it is imperative to isolate the tattoo using a diaper or non-woven roll towels and scotch tape, having done all the previously described procedures.
  7. Repeat all tattoo care items at least 5 times a day for 3 days after application.
  8. On the 4th day after application, you can take care of the tattoo 3 times a day. All points must be observed, but immediately after washing it is already possible not to use the solution of “Chlorhexidine bigluconate”, but immediately proceed to the ointment.

As a rule, on the 4th day the tattoo is covered with a thin scaly film, and the time for complete healing of the tattoo takes 10-14 days. The first 7-8 days, careful care is necessary for the tattoo, then you can only lubricate it with ointment so that the healing tattoo does not pull and does not peel off much.

Until complete healing is strictly prohibited.

Leaving in the first days after drawing

  1. Immediately after the session, the tattoo should be washed with clean and warm water with antibacterial soap. Then you need to wipe it with a napkin or paper towel. Then, in place of the tattoo, apply the Bepanten or D-Panthenol skin-regenerating ointment and apply a compress dressing.
    • After removing the bandage, let the skin breathe a little.
    • If the dressing is stuck, moisten it with warm water and it will easily come off.
    • Wash your hands thoroughly before removing the bandage! Remove the dressing carefully without damaging the healing skin.
    • Plastic bandages are allowed to be worn for no more than 2-3 hours, as polyethylene prevents the skin from breathing.
    • Thick, non-adhesive bandages can be worn for about 24 hours.
    • Consult with a tattoo artist about the duration of wearing the bandage.
  2. Wash the tattoo!
    • Rinse skin with soap and water and rinse with soap.
    • Then wash your skin with antibacterial agents (chlorhexidine, miramistin).
    • Do not use boiling water or too cold water!
    • Avoid washcloths and any other abrasive cleaners.
    • Rinse thoroughly to avoid scars.
    • Be sure to rinse off the soap!

  1. Gently pat the tattoo with a tissue or paper towel.
    • It is better to let the skin dry itself, it is not long for 5-10 minutes.
    • Do not rub your skin with a towel, wanting to dry the wound soon!
    • There are often a lot of bacteria on a cloth towel, so it is not recommended to use a cloth.
    • A paper towel or toilet paper should be of high quality and soft. The main thing is that the paper does not stick.
  2. Apply a protective, skin-regenerating ointment with a thin layer on top of dry skin, with light finger movements.
    • Ointment or cream should be a bit! With a thin layer, cover the area with damaged skin, no more.
    • Rub the protective cream thoroughly.
    • We recommend using Bepanten ointment or D-Panthenol ointment.
    • Avoid Aloe Vera cream and all ointments containing cortisone and alcohol.
  3. Do not re-bandage the tattoo! In the open air, the wound will heal faster.
