Tattoo Aftercare Instructions

1. Leave the bandage on for at least 3-5 days. This protects the tattoo from outside bacteria and promotes healing.2. Wash your hands thoroughly with antibacterial soap before touching the tattoo.3. Gently remove the bandage and discard it. Do not re-bandage the tattoo.4. Wash the tattooed area gently with lukewarm water and a mild, fragrance-free antibacterial soap. Avoid using excessive pressure or scrubbing. Pat the tattoo dry with a clean, disposable paper towel.5. Apply a thin layer of fragrance-free, non-comedogenic tattoo aftercare ointment. Use clean hands to apply a thin, even layer. Avoid using excessive amounts of ointment.6. Repeat the washing and ointment application process 2-3 times a day for the first 3-7 days.7. Avoid soaking the tattoo in water for at least 2 weeks. This means no swimming, hot tubs, saunas, or prolonged exposure to water.8. Avoid direct sunlight and tanning beds for at least 2 weeks. After the initial healing period, apply sunscreen with a high SPF to protect your tattoo from fading.9. Avoid picking, scratching, or peeling any scabs that may form. Let them heal naturally. Picking at scabs can cause scarring and damage the tattoo.10. Wear loose, breathable clothing over the tattooed area to allow airflow and minimize friction.11. Avoid activities that may cause excessive sweating or irritation to the tattooed area, such as intense workouts, gardening, or heavy lifting, for the first 2 weeks.12. Keep pets away from your tattoo to prevent them from licking or scratching it.13. If your tattoo becomes excessively red, swollen, or starts oozing pus, or if you experience increased pain or fever, seek medical attention immediately as these may be signs of infection.Remember, proper aftercare is essential for the healing and longevity of your tattoo. Following these instructions will help minimize the risk of infection and ensure the best possible outcome.If you have any concerns or questions during the healing process, don't hesitate to reach out to me or a healthcare professional for guidance.

This deposit will go towards the end of the appointment!

You must be over 18 to book with me! Once you are ready to book, you can submit a form through the "Book" button. Once we figure out a date, I will give you the info to send the deposit so we can reserve the spot!

Things to know before you come to the tattoo is that you should try to be as hydrated as you can! Drink allllllll the water, as it helps your skin stay moisturized which is then easier to tattoo.Another way to keep your skin perfect for tattooing is to moisturize the area that is to be tattooed as much as you can!Try not to drink any alcohol at least 24 hours before the tattoo, as it can cause you to bleed easier when you are being tattooed.A good nights sleep will help with your stamina during a tattoo. It'll help with your energy throughout the day.Don't worry about shaving the area (if it an area you don't usually shave) before the tattoo, we will take care of that the day of the appointment. :)It is also always a good idea to shower before the appointment. Tattooing clean skin is preferred, and you may get a lil sweaty during the tattoo.

Last but not least, things you should know the day of the tattoo! Make sure you bring valid photo ID, or else I cannot tattoo you due to government regulations. Always make sure to have food before the appointment, as it also helps you get through the tattoo easier. Bring any of your favourite snacks as well, though sometimes I have some snacks for you. If you need something to distract you, feel free to bring headphones, books, etc so you can feel as comfy as you can! Avoid taking any blood thinning pain killers before the appointment, this includes Ibuprofen, Naproxen, or Aspirin. Tylenol is perfectly okay as it does not have any blood thinning agents in it.
