Before your session

Before your tattoo session the best thing is to have a good sleep, eat large breakfast and supply yourself with some sweets and drinks to keep your blood sugar level - this is the best painkiller.

After your session - Aftercare

Remove the foil after one hour, two maximum. All wounds need to breathe if they are to heal properly. Wash the tattoo using your fingertips or hand only. Use a mild antibacterial soap and warm water. Take care to remove all traces of blood as this will cause scabbing. Always gently pat the tattoo dry with a kitchen towel. Apply a thin coat of ointment to the tattoo, BEPANTHEN cream is very good. (Just enough to make it shine, a little goes a long way...) Work it in well. Dab off all the excess with a paper towel. You should barely be able to tell that it's there... There is no need to wrap again your tattoo. Ointment can be applied whenever the tattoo is feeling stiff or dry but beware of over-moisturizing. Your skin will form a protective layer no matter what you do. If you do not keep it moist or if you keep it too moist (it's a personal balance, different for each individual), it will form a thick, hard scab that may crack when you move. You must keep your tattoo clean, however, long showers or baths must be avoided for 2 weeks. Prolonged soaking can and will loosen scabs if any have formed, or will soak through the soft tissue turning it into a soggy mess and cause your ink to flow down the drain. This includes Swimming in the Ocean or a Pool, Hot Tubs, and Saunas. Short showers are best, under ten minutes if possible. Please refrain from scratching or picking at the tattoo. No doubt about it, the sun is BAD for your tattoo, even if you've had it for a loooooong time. A sunburn on a new tattoo can cause a lot of problems. Wait until it is fully healed to go back in the sun or a tanning bed and make sure you put on a high quality SUNBLOCK 50+ (not sunscreen). But, do not apply sunblock while the tattoo is healing. .
