Your artist will have wrapped your tattoo in cling film with some Vaseline to stop the bleeding.
After 2-3 hours, take the cling film off and give it a rinse with warm, soapy water. Only use soaps that are for sensitive skin and with the least amount of fragrance possible. Always let the tattoo air dry.
You may see some plasma or excess ink coming from your tattoo on the first night, that’s absolutely normal but if it’s a lot, wrap it in cling film again just for the first night.
Try to wear clothes that won’t be tight or cling to the tattoo for the first 5-7 days. When your tattoo has stopped bleeding and giving off plasma and seems to be dry (usually 24-36 hours after your tattoo is finished), start to apply cream at intervals to give the tattoo some moisture. Cream doesn’t heal your tattoo nor fight infection, it only gives it elasticity when it’s getting too dry. We recommend Hustle Butter or Palmer’s Cocoa Butter.
All tattoos have different healing times. Between 4-8 weeks is usually an estimate.
I highly recommend Flesh Tattoo to anyone that wants to get some cool art in a cool environment! Thanks guys, I'll definitely come back!!
