Tattoo Aftercare Recommendations

Regular Bandages: Remove the bandage your artist has placed on your tattoo for protection after 2-3 hours. Be sure to rinse the tattoo thoroughly with antibacterial soap and warm water. Don't forget to rinse off all the ointment. Pat dry, DO NOT RUB, with a clean paper towel (a clean paper towel to avoid contamination).

Sani-derm: Remove the bandage your artist has placed on your tattoo for protection after 2-3 days. Yes, you can shower with the Sani-derm. Only remove the bandage earlier if the barrier has been compromised.

For the first week...

...we suggest applying a very thin layer of ointment over the tattoo, Aquaphor preferrably. Wash and apply the ointment for 3-4 times a day, in order to prevent your skin from drying.

Be sure to rinse the tattoo thoroughly with antibacterial soap and warm water. 

Make sure to rinse off all the plasma that may have wept out of your tattoo.

The common not so common sense...

...DO NOT scratch, pick, or itch the tattoo or scab (though it is tempting, you must resist the urge). 

The first few nights, it's normal for some ink to bleed from your tattoo. 

Keep the tattoo out of direct sunlight and pool/saltwater for the first 3-4 weeks while it heals.

Pat dry, DO NOT RUB, with a clean paper towel (A clean paper towel to avoid contamination)


Microblading Aftercare Recommendation

 

Clean your eyebrows...

...gently 2 times a day with warm water, soap for children (mild) and clean cotton pads.

The movement is done in the direction of hair growth, without forcing the skin. Apply a thin layer of post after care serum. ATTENTION! Do not apply excessive oil, this leads to the formation of scabs!

DO NOT...

...apply Vaseline, Bepanthen, any antibiotic cream, white petroleum, A & D ointments (the risk of infection is very high).

...expose your eyebrows to sunlight or any other form of UV rays for 1 month.

...apply any makeup (e.g. eyebrow powder, foundation, BB cream, mineral powder etc.) in the eyebrow area for the next 2 weeks.

...jump in the pool for at least one week (chlorine can cause irritation to the eyebrows).

...steam or go to a sauna for at least 1 week.

...engage in any activity that requires effort and will make you sweat. These are contraindicated for the next 5 days.

Be careful when sleeping...

...accidental pillow contact with the eyebrow in the healing process can remove pigment in some areas, creating an asymmetrical aspect between the 2 eyebrows.
