Tattoo

  • Remove bandage after 2 hours.
  • Do not re-bandage.
  • Wash gently with soap & water, pat dry & apply lotion.

Repeat 3 times daily.

 Healing time is 2-6 weeks. Healing is affected by many factors including personal hygiene amount of sleep, food, drink and drugs.

Do not scratch, scrub, soak, swim, tan, shave or sunburn your new tattoo. At best, your tattoo will flake and peel like a sunburn. If scabs form, do not disrupt them in any way, as this may cause loss of colour.

Remember, your tattoo cannot look after itself, We recommend Easy Tattoo Repair Cream, which we sell or E45 for healing tattoos: Savlon is antiseptic and may be too strong, causing colour loss – it should only be used in case of redness.

Preparation H is for piles, not tattoos. Don’t listen to your friends, the guy in the pub or the chemist. If you have questions please consult us in person so that we may see the condition of your tattoo as soon as possible and recommend the best course of action.

IMPORTANT
DO NOT use ITCH RELIEF E45. This will ruin your fresh tattoo.

Troublesome Healing Piercings
If an irritation has occurred with your piercing, a good method to get back to normal is to do the following:

  • Boil some water
  • Pour into a shot glass
  • Add sea salt
  • As hot as you can, (not boiling)! immerse the body part into the shot glass for about 3 minutes.
  • Taking some of the sea salt out of the glass with a cotton bud, apply it on the piercing and irritation. Leave for a couple of minutes and rinse.

Do this twice a day for a week and you should see a huge improvement!
