Hygiene

After completing each tattoo on a customer, I discard ALL NEEDLES, COLOURS AND COLOUR CONTAINERS.

This way there is no danger of cross contamination from my equipment.

I only use the finest colour pigment available, and those items which come into contact with your skin, are sterilised to Environmental Health Standards.

I can therefore guarantee my work up to the time it is completed.

I cannot however guarantee how you treat your tattoo once completed, and unfortunately I cannot be responsible for it after this time.

Having said that, I will be happy to advise you on any problems you may encounter.

 

Aftercare for Your Tattoo

  1. Keep the paper dressing on for 3 hours, then remove and wash the tattoo gently in warm soapy water. Pat it dry with a clean disposable paper towel. DO NOT use the family towel.
  2. Allow it to air dry for at least 5 mins.
  3. Thoroughly wash your hands then gently rub BEPANTHEN OINTMENT over the tattoo.
  4. Then totally cover the tattoo with cling film and seal the edges with micropore tape.
  5. Carry out this procedure twice a day, morning and night for 7 days. i.e. WASH PAT DRY ... AIR DRY OINTMENT ... CLINGFILM.
  6. After 7 days of this threatment, stop using the cling film. For the next 5 days just apply a thin coating of BEPANTHEN twice a day.
  7. DO NOT swim or sunbathe until the tattoo is fully healed.
  8. DO NOT apply any other ointment whatsoever.
  9. DO NOT apply industrial cleaners such as SWARFEGA or BARRIER CREAMS.
  10. DO NOT expose your tattoo to DIRT, DUST, GREASE, CEMENT DUST, OIL, RAW MEAT, and OTHER PEOPLES BODY FLUIDS.
  11. DO NOT soak the tattoo in your bath, showering is OK but soaking is not.
  12. MAKE SURE your clothing does not rub against the tattoo, particularly bra, straps, belts, etc

Your new tattoo will look shiny for a while, this is perfectly normal, and is simply the new skin growing.

BEPANTHEN, CLINGFILM, and ADHESIVE TAPE will be given to you before you leave the studio.

BEPANTHEN is the only oitment to use. By using it, your tattoo will heal very quickly and will not scrab.
