Keep the tattoo covered with a wrap film for at least 2 hours but no more than 24 hours ( but if you are allergic with plastic MUST remove it immediately), after remove the wrap film then use cold or warm water clean a tattooed area gently, then pad it dry with paper towel and use the tattoo goo ( can buy at my studio HK$80 each one). I recommend this product as they are natural ingredients, also won’t block the skin pores and moisturize the tattooed wound during healing process.
Do not re-bandage the wrap film as the tattooed wound need to breath, in first few days may have some discharge & ink comes out which is normal healing process so no need to be worry.
If shampoo or soap goes through the tattooed area which is fine but make sure no bath, shower only.
Put the tattoo goo or your preferred lotion ( non perfumed ) after cleaning or whenever you need it ( itchy or dry ), but apply thin layer at each time and keep using it until the tattooed is fully healed.
Do not use vaseline as it has petroleum ingredient that would block the skin pores which will prevent the wound from healing.
It takes around 3 to 4 days to scab and another 10 to 14 days for it fully healed.
Do not swim, expose to direct sunlight and massage of tattooed area until the tattooed is fully healed. Infection from swimming, sunburn and massage oil could damage the tattoo results.
Do not pick or scratch your tattooed. Apply tattoo goo or your lotion if you feel itchy or dry, as moisturize the tattooed area is help to reduce the itchy.
