Take care of your personal hygiene. A shower before showing up is highly recommended.
Make sure you have gotten enough rest and sleep the night before.
Do NOT use alcohol or drugs at least 24 hours before and after.
Make sure you have eaten a full course meal a few hours before your appointment. It is not advisable to show up on an empty stomach.
If you decide to apply any anesthetics,
1 hour before your appointment, make sure the area where you will be getting the tattoo is cleaned well with alcohol & shaved to skin completely. Apply cream leaving a thick layer of it not completely rubbed in. Suran wrap the area tight & seal the openings with Nexcare tape so no air gets through.
Come with healthy skin. Sunburnt, redness, or irritations on or near the area being tattooed will not be acceptable. Check with your artist if you have any scarring or stretch-marks before consulting.
If suran wrap was used, remove after 3-4 hours and proceed to clean it. If Saniderm was used, leave it on for 24 hours & consult with your artist to apply a second saniderm bandage that you will leave on for 5 days. Never re-wrap your tattoo with suran wrap.
Every time you go to touch your tattoo, be sure to wash your hands and do not allow others to touch it during healing. After removing the plastic, wash the tattoo with warm water and an antibacterial soap. You will continue to wash your tattoo every day.
The morning after your tattoo to prevent the tattoo from drying out and/or becoming infected, apply a thin layer of cream (sold on our shop page or in shop) for the next 7 days only in the morning.
Avoid direct exposure to the sun or places with high humidity such as saunas, swimming pools, beaches, gyms, or prolonged baths in the shower as these can affect the final coloring and look of your tattoo as well as causing unnecessary infections.
If some type of scabbing or peeling should form during your healing process, under no circumstances should you detach it since along with it you could take the pigment with it.
To prevent a vibrant tattoo from fading during the healing process till' forever, apply sunscreen on the area.
