Taking Care of your Piercing for the First 2 Weeks
Things you might notice during healing
***** In the event an infection is suspected the jewellery should be left in place to allow for draining of the infection. If the jewellery is removed, the surface cells can close, which can seal the infection inside the piercing channel and result in an abscess.
*****Do not remove jewellery unless instructed to by a medical professional..
Caring for Your Tattoo
Day of Tattoo
......Keep the protective covering on your tattoo for 1 hour, NO more then 3 hours.
(This will help sweat out any extra ink or body fluids)
......Remove the covering and wash your tattoo with any soap and water using your clean hands.
.......Let your tattoo dry overnight.
.......Do not apply any ointments for 24 hours after your tattoo)
First Two Weeks
.....Everyday clean your tattoo by washing it gently with warm water and mild soap
.....Pat it dry with a clean towel.
Apply a very small amount of tattoo ointment to your tattoo. TWICE a day.
Remove any extra ointment you may have on your tattoo with a clean cloth.
PLEASE DO NOT USE YOUR FINGERS TO REMOVE OINTMENT FROM TIN,
We recommend a proper tattoo ointment that can be found in any tattoo shop.
When your tattoo has becomes dry or itchy then you may use some to take away the itch.
Keep it clean and let it heal on its own.
Help for your Tattoo
