INTO SKIN TATTOO
& Body Piercing Studio

TATTOO AFTERCARE

Leave the dressing on for 2 hours, remove and then wash the tattoo with anti-bacterial soap.

Pat dry and apply a smear of Bepanthen cream to the tattooed area. Repeat this process twice daily for two weeks or untill all the scabbing has gone.

Do not pick or scratch the tattoo during the healing process because this will remove colour.

Refrain from swimming for at least 2 weeks, or until all scabbing has gone.

Protect from the sun for at least 8 weeks and remember the tattoo is your responsibility once you leave the shop.

*All touch up's must be done between 8 & 12 weeks of the tattoo being completed, otherwise a charge will be made

PIERCING AFTERCARE

Ear, Belly, Nipple, Nose & Eyebrow

Always wash your hands with anti-bacterial soap before touching a piercing!

Leave the dressing on for 2 hours (belly and nipple peircings), remove the dressing and bathe the piercing with a weak salt water solution or a couple of drops of teatree oil in warm water twice a day. The piercing will be sore initially, this is normal during the first few days. It can take between 3-12 months for the peircing to heal totally and it is advisory to keep the jewellery in that you have been pierced with until healing is complete. Refrain from swimming for at least 2 weeks, and remember piercing is your responsibility once you leave the shop.

Tongue & Lip

Note: Your tongue has been pirced with a bar long enough to accommodate swelling that will take place. This may be uncomfortable for a few weeks untill the swelling subsides. Gargle with a non flavoured non alcholic antiseptic mouthwash or saltwater at least 3 times daily. Drink plenty of fluids and avoid alcohol and spicy foods whilst the tongue is still swollen.

Lip piercing: Gargle with saltwater and bathe around the piercing with saltwater 2 or 3 times daily.
