Tattoo Aftercare Instructions 

  • The aftercare of your tattoo will greatly determine the way your tattoo will look once it has fully healed. 

  • Leave your cling film wrap on for 2 hours, then remove it and wash the tattoo gently and air dry. 

  • Apply a very thin layer of Easy Tattoo Aftercare, there should be no build-up of ointment on your tattoo. 

  • You will need to wash your new tattoo 2 to 3 times daily as stated above re-applying aftercare as needed. 

  • Do not pick scabs. This will cause your tattoo to bleed and will pull ink out of your skin. 

  • Avoid body wash, lotions and shampoos that have fragrances. Do not swim or go into a hot tub for at least two weeks. Avoid direct exposure to the sun. 

  • Wear loose clothing over your tattoo while it heals to avoid any rubbing that may pull off scabs. 

  • After the tattoo has fully healed you will want to wear sunscreen over it when spending long periods in direct sunlight to keep it looking bright and new. 

  • Do not put andy sunscreen on a tattoo that has not fully healed.
