Hygiene & Care

Hygiene is paramount in the tattooing procedure. All items should be sterile or one use only, i.e. (needles inks etc). Any other items should be re sterilized or kept in such a way that they are impervious to contamination during the application of a tattoo.





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 & Do Not’s
Do Not

1. Scratch, pick or soak the tattoo.
2. Sunbathe or swim.
3. Do not wear clothes which are tight or may rub.




1. Keep the tattoo clean.
2. Add cream 2 to 3 times daily.
3. Take care not to knock or damage the tattoo.



Any problems or advice, please call. In the long term, to keep a tattoo at its best, use high factor sun cream when in the open sun.
