Prior to your Appointment: 

How to care for your new tattoo:

What to expect:

What NOT to do:

Long term care:

  • After procedure, gently wipe off any body fluids w/ cotton pad or tissue. Your technician will provide aftercare after your session, you may apply this throughout your healing process (apply whenever your tattooed area feels dry).

  • After 24-48 Hour after your procedure, you may gently splash lukewarm water onto tattoo and wipe clean cotton ball/cotton pad 2-3 times a day

  • For the first few days, the colour intensity of your procedure will be significantly darker, as well as larger and sharper than what is expected for the final outcome

  • Around day 5-10  the tattoo will begin to peel looking dry and flaky, it is important not to peel or pick at the excess skin  

  • Although tattoo will appear healed after 10 days, it will not be fully healed for 4-6 weeks to reveal the actual colour, this is based on how quickly the outer layer of your skin exfoliates.

  • One procedure cannot guarantee desired outcome. In some cases, we need to see how our clients react to the pigment and review the dealing process after the first procedure. Therefore, we a touch-up visit is recommended within 3 months  of the first procedure. In very complicated cases (involving removal/colour correction/camouflage/scar tissue/iron disorder) an extra charge may apply on extra touch-ups.

  • DO NOT use soap/facial cleansers on pigmented areas (wash around them), pat dry with a clean towel.

  • DO NOT rub, scratch or pick any crust along the tattooed area. Easy removal of pigment crusts may result in lost colour.

  • DO NOT apply makeup on the pigmented are during the healing process (10-14 days

  • AVOID swimming, soaking, steam bath and facials for 1st week

  • Avoid sun exposure (including tanning beds) during healing process

  • DO NOT use exfoliants, retinol acids, or AHA’s on the area for 30 days after the appointment, it will fade your tattoo prematurely.

  • NO anti-aging products or facial products containing Alpha Hydroxyls (AHAs), Retin-A, Lactic or Glycolic Acids

  • DO NOT get massages or facials or skin treatments during the healing process.

  • Use a good sunscreen daily on tattooed area(s) otherwise the colour will fade faster.

  • Our pigment is Organic based which your body slowly absorbs, the colour will fade over time. You may desire touch-ups every 1-3 years

  • If you are planning a chemical peel, MRI, or other medical procedure, please tell the technician that you have an iron-oxide cosmetic tattoo.
