Tattoo After Care

            The Tattoo will ooze (lymph) this is a sign that healing is taking place. If left alone with no cream the Tattoo will dry up leaving a scab that will take a long time to fall off and will cause discomfort. The lymph drying out causes the scab. The lymph has great healing properties while it is still moist.

        2 hours after the tattoo has been done wash the Tattoo down with warm soapy water then pat dry using a clean soft towel. Then apply a TINY amount Paw-Paw or Ale Vera Cream on the tattoo and work it in really good, wipe off the excess. IT SHOULD NOT BE SHINY OR STICKY. If you apply too much simple wipe of excess with a clean towel, to much cream can be just as bad as no cream when healing a tattoo, cream the Tattoo every day around 2 to 3 times with Paw-Paw or Ale Vera Cream for the next 2 to 3 weeks till healed so the Tattoo won't dry up.

        In about 2 to 5 days your tattoo will it starts to peel and flake (What we call Scab), “Don't pick any scab”, it will fall off on its own, if you try and remove it by pulling it of, you will damage the tattoo and risk loosing both lines and colour, then you will have to pay to get it fixed.

        In the first 2 or 3 weeks do not soak your Tattoo in water for long periods i.e. bathing, swimming (Fresh, Salt or Chlorine), spas. Saltwater and chorine water will destroy your tattoo so no swimming for the first 2 to 3 weeks. Showering is ok; just do not drown the tattoo.

        Stay out of the sun until the Tattoo is completely healed this will be 2 to 3 weeks because the new Tattoo will burn very fast. Sun light will also fade a new tattoo very very fast in the first 2 to 3 weeks, also getting it sunburned that early can cause a very bad infection which in bad cases can hospitalise you. After your Tattoo is healed you should always put a good sunscreen on your Tattoo when going in the sun because the sun fades the colours away.

        When the tattoo is healing it will itch, do not scratch it, if it gets to bad and you feel the need to scratch it, lightly dab the tattoo with a cotton bud dipped in methylated spirits, this will dry the tattoo and take away the itching, only use this method when the skin has healed.

         If you follow these Instructions you should not have any problems with your Tattoo.
