HOW DO I LOOK AFTER MY NEW TATTOO?
The first 72 hours is a crucial period for your tattoo follow these aftercare instructions carefully.
New tattoo has to be covered in cling film for the first 2 hours after the tattoo is complete.
It is important to clean the tattoo after the cling film is taken off with warm soapy water and clean the tattoo everyday at least 3-5 time per day.
It is ideal to rewrap with cling film over night for the first few days to avoid contact with bedding and bed clothes.
By the second day the tattoo will start to look dry, To stop the tattoo from drying out and cracking apply very thin layers bepanthen, coconut oil or other aftercare clarke may recommend 3-4 times a day or as needed. continue this for atleast 2 weeks until the tattoo is healed, bear in mind applying moisturiser indefinitely will keep the tattoo looking fresh.

Don’t use other aftercare products unless you seek advice from your artist
