Before you do anything to your new tattoo, wash your hands with a mild soap. Carex, simple, dr bronners or own-brand antibacterial soaps are recommended.


Do not used heavily perfumed soaps, or any soap with micro-beads.


Remember that your tattoo is an open wound, and anything that comes into contact with it must be clean

Washing Your Tattoo


1. Remove the cling film wrap that I applied after 3 to 4 hours in a clean environment.


2. Wash under warm water under the shower or tap. Your tattoo may feel warm to the touch or like sun burn, be careful with the heat.


3. Lather up a small amount of soap between clean hands and gently rub over the tattoo in a circular motion to remove any plasma or blood that may be stuck to it. Rinse clean. (ONLY use clean hands to wash your tattoo - do not use flannels, washcloths, sponges etc)

4. Give the whole area around your tattoo a wash too. For example if you’re having an arm tattooed, wash the back and sides of the arm.


5. Gently pat the tattoo dry with something that you are sure is clean, e,g. A clean towel, kitchen roll

Re-Wrapping Your Tattoo


Now that your tattoo is clean and dry you’ll need to re-wrap it.

I generally advise that all tattoos are wrapped up for the first night to protect them, but I may have told you otherwise, if so, do not follow this step. If you are unsure please drop me an email.


Always wash your tattoo before re-wrapping it using the steps mentioned above. You need a clean piece of cling film to cover your tattoo completely. It is usually best to use more surface of cling film than you think you may need, as you might find that your cling film will slip or shift as you move around with it on. If you have any surgical tape, you can tape it down.


Any cling film that you apply will need to be changed a few times a day. Any cling film you have on should stay on for 3 to 4 hours, and then be replaced. When applying cling film to sleep in, you don’t need to change it during the night.


The following morning, your tattoo is ready to be out in the open

Your Uncovered Tattoo 


The first thing that you need to do when you get up the morning after getting your tattoo, is to give it a wash following the whole washing process again. Clean your hands, remove the cling film, wash with soap, rinse and pat dry. You do not need to re-wrap it from now on.


It's now time for moisturiser. I recommend palmers cocoa butter, it is easily accessible from most big supermarkets, boots, Superdrug etc. It is available in a tub, or a squeeze bottle, if you can get the bottle I would recommend it for hygiene reasons.


Once you’ve given your tattoo a wash, and you’re happy that your hands are clean, apply a small amount of cream to the tattoo and the surrounding area and rub it in gently. You want a thin layer across the whole tattoo.


You will need to do this wash and cream process twice a day, once in the morning and once at night, until your tattoo is fully healed.

The Healing Process


For the first few days your tattoo will stay warm to the touch and will be red, sore or swollen - this is completely normal.


After three to four days of healing you will start to peel. The flakes will fall off of their own accord and will be the colour of the tattoo. Do not panic, your tattoo isn’t falling out. DO NOT PICK OR PEEL AT YOUR TATTOO. You will pull the ink out before it is healed and will have to have it touched up.


Whilst your tattoo is healing try to wear loose, cotton clothing whenever you can. Avoid anything that will sit tightly over the tattoo like bra straps, tight waist bands, sock cuffs etc.


Make sure that any clothes you wear, and that your bedsheets throughout the healing process are clean.


Do not submerge your new tattoo, showers and rinses are fine. No baths, swimming, hot tubs or washing up if you’ve had anywhere below the elbow tattooed.


Please keep your healing tattoo out of the sun. Only apply sun cream when your tattoo is fully healed, and not before.


Keep your healing tattoo away from pets, or anything that they sleep on/play with, or that may have hair on.

If you are unsure about anything at all regarding your new tattoo please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me. Nothing is a stupid question!
