Aftercare

Aquaphor/Hustle Butter

Method

1-2 Hours after leaving the shop gently wash the tattoo off with fragrance free anti-bacterial liquid soap and water, pat dry with a clean paper towel.

 

 

The morning after getting your tattoo wash the tattoo off with the fragrance free anti-bacterial liquid soap, pat dry then apply a very thin layer of either aquaphor or Hustle Butter Deluxe,  We recommend Hustle Butter Deluxe.  Do this step 2-3 times a day, preferably morning and night.

 

When the tattoo starts to peel just switch over to a fragrance free lotion and apply whenever it feels dry.

 

When using the shower you can apply a thing layer of aquaphor or  Hustle Butter just before getting in so that the water doesn't have a chance to soak into the tattoo.  Rinse off the ointment and apply a thin layer an hour or 2 after the shower.  Don't allow water to directly hit the tattoo.

Saniderm

Method

Leave saran wrap on overnight.
Remove in the morning, wash your hands, than wash the tattoo off.
Wait 15-20 minutes, make sure tattoo is dry and not seeping anymore.  If it seeps, wash it off and wait another hour before applying the tatu derm.  Make sure the tattoo doesn’t touch anything while it’s air drying.  Make sure there is 1.5-2 inches of tatu derm around the edges of the tattoo.  If you need multiple pieces overlap them with about 1.5-2 inches of tatu derm.
Leave tatu derm on for 5-7 days.

A smell similar to a cast being left on will happen.
You may drain any liquid that develops between the saniderm and tattoo, just be sure to patch it back up with another piece of saniderm 2-3 inches in size or bigger.

Buy more from Amazon.  We recommend Tatu Derm, Recovery, or Saniderm

​When Healing....

Don't scratch or pick at the tattoo

Don't go tanning, wait until your tattoo is completely healed.  Try to keep the tattoo covered by loose fitting clothing while it's healing as opposed to using sunblock.  Sunblock may be used when the tattoo is completely healed.

Don't listen to your friends.  Contact us before taking their advice.

Don't let your pet lick/touch the tattoo.

 

If you apply any aftercare products and you experience any burning wash your tattoo off immediately and call us as soon as possible.  There are other products that we can recommend using.
