Care instructions

Please, obtain Bepanthen ointment from the pharmacy or any wound healing supporting ointment from the drugstore (e.g. Panthenol from d&m).

After the tattoo procedure, your tattoo will be covered with a film. This film must be removed after 2-3 hours. The tattoo needs to be cleaned with tab water (no soap today!) and patted dry subsequently. After this, you apply a thin layer of ointment. During the healing process, you need to avoid drying-out of the tattoo. Therefore, you must apply the ointment 3-4 times a day. A film doesn’t need to be applied anymore!

The next day, you can use your soap as usually. Nevertheless, you should abstain from the following for 4 weeks:

  • solarium

  • sauna

  • steam bath

  • swimming pool

  • bath

Future note: Tattoos are photosensitive! You need to apply sun screen with a high SPF during summer!

The surface of your tattoo will heal in between 14 days. After this period, you do not need to moisturize it anymore. Till the tattoo/wound is completely healed, it will take up to 6-8 weeks. During this time, color and surface of the tattoo may still change. When the wound healing process is finished, please come in for a check! We want to take care and need to control, if your tattoo needs a touch up!
