    Tattoo Aftercare Aftercare is available here at the studio: €10 Tattoo Cream 50ml €15 Aftercare Set (Tattoo Cream and Soft Cleaning Gel) 1. Follow your tattoo artist’s advice Aftercare advice will vary from studio to studio, and sometimes even artists in the same studio will have different ideas of what heals best. Listen to the instructions your artist gives you – most will have a leaflet with their advice printed out for you to take away. 2. After a few hours gently wash the tattoo The majority of advice will tell you to leave the covering on the tattoo for the first 2-5 hours, then to carefully remove it and gently wash the tattoo with lukewarm water and mild liquid soap. 3. Apply a thin layer of unscented moisturising cream You should then apply a thin layer of an unscented moisturising cream or aftercare cream – your artist will tell you which they recommend. You can either then recover with clingfilm/gauze, or leave it open to the air, depending on your artists advice. Generally, studios will advise you to repeat the cleaning process 3-5 times a day. 4. Keep the tattoo clean and dry Keep the tattoo clean and dry, and avoid soaking it in water for at least a month showers are ok, baths are not. If your clothes are likely to rub on it, keep it covered with gauze/clingfilm and medical tape. 5. Avoid direct sunlight Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight unless necessary. Healed tattoos, especially coloured ones, can fade in the sun – so when it’s completely healed, make sure it’s covered in a high SPF if you’re going to be catching some rays. 6. Be patient with healing times Healing times depend on how well you heal and the size of the design. This can range anywhere from around a week for simple, small line designs, to several months for complex, larger designs. Keep following your aftercare instructions for as long as the artist told you to, and make sure the tattoo is kept well-moisturised and clean for a good few months after that, avoiding abrasive skin products. 7. Do. Not. Itch. As the tattoo heals, it may scab or flake slightly. Avoid picking at it, as this may remove the ink in that area and lead to patches fading or being removed altogether. If it itches, don’t scratch – slap it lightly instead. This should only last for the first few weeks or so – if it stays raised, itches uncontrollably, is red around the design, keeps bleeding for more than a day or so after having it done, or is continuously hot to the touch, go back to your artist or seek medical advice. Infected tattoos are very rare but can happen, and it’s always worth getting it checked out if you’re worried about it. 8. Go back to the studio for touch ups, if needed If you do lose ink, contact the studio and we’ll be happy to come up with a solution. After about 6 weeks, go back if you need touch-ups on any area of the tattoo.

    Lip Blushing (1st Application)

    It is a lip tattoo that enhances and defines your lips. It can help enhance and even out natural color, or add color if you are lacking any pigment. Your lips will look darker and more like lipstick on the first day, and soften as they heal to become a subtle, natural looking lip tint. Apply a little gloss or balm and your lips are perfectly kissable!
