Dag 1-3

When you’re tattoo is ready, we’ll put a foil around it.
It will be either a temporary foil, that twill have to be removed 1 or 2 hours later.
Or a ‘Second skin’ which you can leave on for 24 hours.

After you remove this foil: clean your tattoo with clear water (no soap, or ph-neutral soap with no parfum). Make sure to clean all wound fluids, blood and ink residue. Once the tattoo is clean and dry, put on a new (thin) layer of tattoo balm.

After this you can choose to either keep using (regular kitchen) foil for the next 2-3 days (if you find it irritating when you clothes rub against it, or if you work in a dusty environment for example). Try to leaf the tattoo open at least a couple of hours per day to let it ‘breathe’. After 3 days, stop using the foil, to prevent slow skin regeneration.

Week 2-4

After about a week your tattoo can start to itch and shed. This is completely normal! Don’t scratch the tattoo or try to peel of lose pieces of skin. Chances are this will damage your tattoo

At this point keep cleaning your tattoo regularly with clean water, and make sure to but balm on it whenever it starts to feel a little dry.

After healing

Even when your tattoo is fully healed, it stays important to take care of it. If you spend some time in the sun, make sure to use sunscreen!
If you have dry skin, regularly apply some moisturising creme to keep your skin, and therefor your tattoo, from crackling and aging to fast.
