In our aftercare packs we provide a step by step card on how to look after your tattoo. By doing this you will get the best results.
After your Tattooist has applied your design, they will wash off the excess ink with green soap spray and paper towels or a wet wipe. Your artist will apply a liberal amount of Skin shield and Clingfilm the area, securing with tape.
After 3+ hours take off the dressing and wash with foam spray (Old Yakuza secret! After you have cleaned your tattoo wash finally with ice cold water letting the water run indirectly over your new tattoo for 30-45 seconds – this closes the pores and prevents further drainage) Gently pat your tattoo dry, coat with a thin layer of Skin shield and reapply Clingfilm (Repeat this process 3 times a day for 3 days!)
If you scratch or pick at the scabs you will be pulling the fresh ink out of your skin and your tattoo will end up looking faded and/or patchy. Skin shield is Top guns own in brand aftercare only sold in studio.
Do not go swimming or soak in water until your new design is fully healed.
We all take different times to heal but as a rule of thumb it will heal in roughly a week to ten days, after which you may experience a form of light skin peeling. Once it is healed you will need to look after your new tattoo with a moisturizer and if you go in the sun, use a high factor sun block.
If you have any questions or worries about the way your tattoo is healing then do not hesitate to call us or pop back into the studio.
We thank you for your custom and hope to see you again soon!
