Some Aftercare

Your tattoo is going to lose ink from the top layer of skin and the body’s natural fluid secretion from healing. We suggest sleeping in a old shirt, sheets or lay on a dark towel. Depending on the size and type of work done (Tribal) you might ruin clothing and bedding the first night.

Your tattoo is going to be warm and red the first day or two and then start to itch as your tattoo heals. Don’t itch or scratch or touch with dirty hands. Your tattoo will start to peel between two and five days and should be completely healed in two weeks or less. Legs may take longer.

Keep tattoo away from sunlight (will burn in the light) no hot tubs, baths or swimming pools until after healing or ink will leech out and may cause a possible scar. Stay away from alchohol or serious pain medication the first night so as not to thin the blood and cause ink loss

  • Tattoo may possibly feel like a sunburn and should heal just like it.

  • The tattoos should not scab or bleed longer than the first hour or so. If pain, swelling, redness, fever or blisters occur during healing please consult a doctor.

  • People with Diabetes or any heart or blood diseases should be extra careful. You might experience complications or extended healing times. Consult your doctor before considering a tattoo.

Keeping the tattoo clean is very important,. Artists try to take as many precautions with using sterile studios and equipment but after the tattoo leaves the artist it is all down to the client for aftercare. Touching with dirty hands can and has caused infections.

If smoke or work with your hands you need to take extra care to not hold or touch open tattoo wounds unless they have just washed their hands or are in the shower. Staph-infections aren’t necessarily fatal but can cause puss pockets along area of tattoo, scarring and fever. Serious infections may require an antibiotic.
