TATTOO AFTERCARE

- Leave your plastic wrap on for at least 1 hour, but for no longer than 4 hours


    - Always wash your hands before cleaning your healing tattoo or touching it for any reason


      - Remove wrap and wash your tattoo with a liquid antibacterial soap with no fragrances and warm water. Pat dry with a clean disposable paper towel, reusable cloth towels can carry bacteria


        - You may re-wrap the area for the first few nights after washing and drying so you don't make a mess of your sheets. Make sure to remove and wash appropriately in the morning. Do not leave your tattoo wrapped excessively, it needs to be able to breathe to heal properly


          - Repeat cleaning 2-3 times per day for two weeks or as directed by your artist. After 24-hours, you can start using a water-based lotion with no added fragrances as needed for itch/dryness. Make sure to wash and dry your tattoo appropriately before applying lotion, use a small amount and rub it all the way into the area


            - Do not pick at your tattoo as it is peeling. If it itches, lightly slap the area to combat the itch


              - Do not submerge your new tattoo underwater for at least 2-3 weeks. Showering is perfectly fine


                - If you have any issues, questions or need help with anything at all, stop by the shop or give us a call at 531-375-5041 at anytime

                BODY PIERCING AFTERCARE

                - Avoid unnecessarily touching your piercing. Do not twist, turn or play with your new jewelry and avoid sleeping on that area

                - You can utilize an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen for the first few days to take care of any swelling, as directed by your piercer

                - Before cleaning your piercing or touching it for any reason, wash your hands thoroughly

                - Rinse your piercing with a sterile saline solution twice a day for the next two weeks, or as directed by your piercer. After two weeks you can drop down to once a day or as needed

                When choosing a sterile saline solution, look for something labeled as a wound wash. Using a solution made for something else, like contact solution, or mixing your own solution can be too harsh which may dry out your piercing and prolong the healing process

                - After rinsing with saline, rinse with water to remove any residue and pat the area dry. Cloth towels can carry bacteria and will be easier to snag your new jewelry on, so use a clean disposable paper towel instead

                - For oral piercings, use an antiseptic mouthwash twice a day for 1-2 weeks or as directed by your piercer

                - If you have any issues with your piercing, have questions or need any kind of help, please reach out to us for assistance. Stop by to see a piercer or give us a phone call at 531-375-5041
