King-Queen Body Art

During the tattooing, the skin is broken, causing a wound. If you take good care of the tattoo, it will take about six weeks for this wound to heal. If the tattoo is covered with a sterile compress or cling film, you can remove it after 3 to 5 hours. Wound spray or self-adhesive clear film should be left in place until it wears off or falls off on its own. You can shower with a tattoo.

Treat the uncovered tattoo wound as follows:
• wash the tattoo twice a day with a mild unscented soap;
• pat the tattoo dry with a clean towel after washing;
• lubricate the wound with an ointment that you have received from the tattoo artist or that he or she recommends.

During the healing process, make sure you:
• touch the tattoo wound as little as possible (wash your hands before treating the wound);
• do not scratch the tattoo wound;
• do not cover the tattoo wound with tight or soiled clothing;
• do not cover the tattoo wound with plasters or bandages;
• avoid (bubble) baths, swimming pools, saunas and steam baths;
• do not expose the tattoo wound to sunlight or tanning beds.

The tattooed skin remains very sensitive to sunlight even after healing. Therefore, always apply sunscreen to your tattoo. Please note: contact your doctor in case of extreme redness, swelling, bleeding, exudate, color change or chronic pain.
