Aftercare

‧ Please take off the plastic wrapper and gently clean your tattoo

with a soft soaked tissue paper, after your tattoo session within two hours.

(You may cover the tattoo again with a new wrapper if you plan to stay out for a while and remove it when you get home.)

 

‧ You can take shower as usual without the plastic wrapper.

However, you SHOULD NOT blast your tattoo with water directly.  When you are done, use a clean towel to soak up the water, and apply a thin layer of ointment. 

 

‧ Cover your tattoo with plastic wrapper on the first 2 days when you stay outside (SHOULD NOT use cloth or linen bandages).

During the healing period, clean your tattoo by every 5 hours with a wet tissue.

 

‧ The healing period varies from people, it normally takes 2-3 weeks. Your tattoo will get flakes during the healing period, like all wounds. You SHOULD NOT scratch or peel them off, let them fall off naturally.

Avoid swimming,  sun tanning or soaking your tattoo in very hot water (e.g. hot spring/spa) during the healing period.

‧ Keep it clean, dry and put ointment on 1-2 times a day until it is completely healed. If you have pets at home, you should keep your wound away from your pets at all time.

紋身護理

‧ 紋身後,兩小時內必須打開保鮮膜,用清水沾濕紙巾輕輕地抹乾淨紋身,然後包回保鮮膜。直至回家後,便可把保鮮膜除下。

 

‧ 洗澡時不用包著保鮮膜,讓溫水慢流到紋身,用沒有磨沙的皂液輕輕沖洗,不要直接用水噴灑它。沖完後,用一條乾淨的毛巾把水印乾,然後搽上薄薄的修復膏。

紋身後的首兩天或傷口仍有血水滲出時,在外都必須包著保鮮膜,若果發現紋身包著時出現過敏情況,如紅點,就不要再包著保鮮膜並保持它乾爽清潔便可。(切勿使用紗布或者麻質的繃帶包紮紋身。若使用防水膠膜,必須搽上薄薄的修復膏才蓋上膠膜。)

 

‧ 紋身痊癒期間,須每隔5個小時用濕的紙巾輕輕地清潔紋身,避免細菌感染。

 

‧ 當紋身未完全復原,都不可游水、曬太陽或浸熱水。 癒合期因人而異,一般需要2~3個星期。跟普通傷口一樣,會結疤和痕癢,不要抓它,要讓它自然地脫落。(抓它會令紋身腫起,有機會令紋身永久不回復正常狀態。) 這段期間,盡量不要食海鮮或者飲酒,避免因過敏反應而影響傷口癒合。

 

‧ 盡量保持紋身清潔和乾爽,每日搽修復膏1~2次直至完全復原。

癒合期間,紋身傷口應盡量避免和動物有直接接觸。
