• When at home, remove wrapping and wash area thoroughly with anti-bacterial soap. Perform circular movements over the tattoo to remove any excess blood and ink from the surface of the skin.

  • Rinse off with warm water and air dry.

  • If your artist has applied the special guard wrap (instead of cling film), leave on for upto 5 days, remove gently in the shower and perform the above steps. The Guard must be airtight at all times. If it is disturbed before 5 days, remove gently and perform the above steps.
  • The following morning, repeat the washing process again. You may now begin to moisturise. With clean, washed hands, apply a thin layer of your preferred aftercare cream and repeat 4-5 times daily. A little goes a long way. Try not to suffocate the skin. You DO NOT need to wrap again. We recommend Yayo Familia Aftercare products which are available at the studio or buy online HERE.
  • Keep your tattoo clean and repeat the cream process again until fully healed.
Please do not pick the scab. Do not soak your tattoo in the bath or swimming pool. If you choose use Bepanthen to heal your tattoo, please make sure you purchase the new cream designed for tattoo healing and not the nappy cream. Please refrain from touching your tattoo unless to cream it. Make sure you apply cream with clean washed hands. Please remember your tattoo is an open wound and requires the utmost care.
