♠ Remove dressing after 1 hour.
♣ Wash tattoo with soap and water, making sure any traces of blood are gently removed.
♥ Pat dry, apply a thin layer of recommended healing cream and cover tattoo with cling film.
♦ Repeat this procedure every 3-4 hours during the day for the first 3 days.
♠ After the 3rd night, stop using the cling film, but carry on washing and creaming for the next 7-10 days - this is VERY IMPORTANT!
♣ After 4-5 days a thin, dry layer of skin will start to peel off.
♥ If a heavy scab has formed, YOU have not taken care of your tattoo as explained! This normally results in loss of colour, scarring and more often than not, a poor looking tattoo.
♦ Do not pick or scratch tattoo during healing period.
♠ For the first 2 weeks, do not soak tattoo, swim or subject your tattoo to sunlight.
♣ If tattoo is taken care of properly, it should be fully healed after approx. 2 weeks.
♥ So my friend, I've done my bit for you - now you make sure you do your bit for yourself!
♦ I use the most up to date methods known while tattooing. I will therefore not be held responsible for any tattoo after dressing has been applied.
♠ You only have one skin - bring it to a professional.
