Taking care of your new tattoo.

Taking care of your new tattoo.

  1. Immediately after getting your ink.
    Your artist will clean your tattoo, wipe it dry and apply a breathable plastic wrap.
    Keep it on for at least 12 hours.
  2. Day 2 - 5
    With clean hands, wash your tattoo gently using Tattoo Gentle Foam Wash.
    Pat dry with a soft towel or paper towel.
  3. Day 4 to day 14
    Continue to wash using Tattoo Gentle Foam Wash.
    Once dry, apply Tattoo Aftercare Balm three times a day.
  4. Day 14+
    Apply Everyday Care as a general moisturiser.
    Apply Sunscreen before going into the sun.


  • Swim, bath or take long showers until your ink is fully healed.  
  • Wear tight-fitting clothing (no matter how good it looks) that may scratch your tattoo.
  • Touch, scratch or fiddle with your tattoo.
  • Go to the gym or do strenuous exercises that may interfere with your ink.
  • Introduce your tattoo to the sun until it’s completely healed.
  • Post a pic on Instagram until it’s healed and the vibrancy is back (a few days after being inked).


  • Drink a lot of water to stay hydrated.
  • Eat healthy foods to help your skin regenerate.
  • Follow the care instructions carefully.
  • Love it. Flaunt it. Look after it.

Don’t Panic

Your tattoo will fade slightly during the healing phase. This is normal and the vibrancy will come back in a few days with proper care.

Your skin will peel. This is normal and will regenerate with proper care.

If you are still unsure, feel free to contact us - always ask your artist for advice, as every artist has a unique style, and might have a different aftercare routine.
