Tattoo Aftercare

Tattoo aftercare is probably the most important part of getting a tattoo, and its entirely up to YOU!  Once you have left the studio the health of your healing tattoo is your responsibility. Your artist will advise you on the best course based on their knowledge and experience. It is up to you to take the advice given, as there are many variables when it comes to getting your tattoo to heal well, ie: location/body placement, clothing, work, seasonal etc..  Below is a basic set of instructions on how to look after your new tattoo.  If you are not sure or forgotten what your artist suggested, get in touch and your artist will re-advise you.
