Hygiene & Care

You should observe your artist preparing and using sterile instruments / needles from blister packs. The artist should also have an autoclave, separate wash basins, display a Local Authority License and have any clinical waste removed by a licensed courier.

The first 2 weeks of your tattoo’s life are probably the most important. Once your tattoo is complete it will be cleaned, have antiseptic cream applied, then be covered with a film dressing. Leave the dressing on for 3-4 hours, then remove it. Wash off any plasma with warm soapy water, rinse then pat dry with a clean towel. Leave the tattoo to dry completely, then apply a small amount of Savlon cream twice a day for the first three days, then baby lotion twice daily.

Do’s & Dont’s


1. Scratch, pick or soak the tattoo.
2. Sunbathe or swim.
