TATTOO AFTERCARE

If your tattoo was covered with a cling film right after it was finished and cleaned, this is what you have to do after 2-3 hours: 

-Take off the cling film and gently wash the tattoo with warm water and antibacterial soap (make some foam in your hand a gently wash the tattoo with it). Rinse it with cold water so the pores will close. Pat the tattoo dry with a clean paper towel (NOT towel made of textile material) or let it naturaly dry for about 5 minutes;

-Use a normal amount of Tattoo Goo aftercare product or Palmer's Cocoa Butter on the tattoo. Gently rub the product in, evenly on the entire tattoo;

-In the first night remember to cover the tattoo with a fresh cling film, after washing and aplying tattoo product (otherwise the sheets and blankets might stick to your tattoo during sleep and might cause infections and wounds);

-If your tattoo is on an area that is usually covered with clothes, use a fresh cling film every time on it in the first 3 days after everytime you clean it.

-Repeat the cleaning procedure every 3-4 times/day (depending on your tipe of skin) in the first 3-4 days and then reduce the cleaning sessions to 2-3 times/day in the next 10 days.
