Giving you an amazing new tattoo was our job. 
Looking after your new tattoo is your job. Do it right.

Here's a few tips to help with the healing process.

  • If cling film was used, remove it within 1-2 hours and give your new tattoo a wash with gentle soap. 

  • Let your tattoo air dry (don't rub it with a towel as this could introduce bacteria).

  • Start applying cream after about 24-48 hours. Your artist will give you the best advice on this when you leave. Thicker/blacker work should be left to dry for a little longer!

  • Only use aftercare recommended to you by your artist. We recommend Palmers Cocoa Butter, Pure Coconut Oil, or the Butterluxe creams that we sell in the studio.

  • Apply a really thin layer of aftercare two/three times a day for about 2 weeks.

  • Keep your tattoo out of the sun and make sure you don't soak it for at least 2 weeks.

  • Don't pick or scratch your new tattoo as this could remove the ink and stop your tattoo from healing perfectly.

  • Contact your artist if you have any issues or questions when healing your new tattoo.
