• Remove the cling film from your new tattoo after 2 or 3 hours. Afterwards, clean your tattoo with lukewarm water and pat dry with a clean and dry towel.
  • Clean the tattoo twice a day by rinsing with lukewarm water or by using mild, unscented soap.
  • After washing your tattoo, pat dry with a clean and dry towel.
  • During the first two weeks; cover your new tattoo with a very thin layer of aftercare balm four times a day*.
  • During the weeks after; cover your new tattoo with a very thin later of aftercare balm two to three times a day*.


The healing process of a tattoo takes approximately four to six weeks when done correctly. You may still shower with a fresh tattoo but be cautious to not use any soaps or shampoos which are heavily scented.


*Please note that the aftercare balm is applied as a very thin later; don’t apply too much product on the skin. We always recommend using Balm Tattoo as an aftercare product which we also sell in the studio.

During the healing process

  • Only touch the tattoo with clean hands.
  • Don’t ever pick off the scabs of the tattoo.
  • Don’t cover the tattoo with band aid or bandage.
  • Avoid swimming pools, sauna’s, hot tubs and steam baths.
  • Avoid direct sunlight and other UV light; even when the tattoo is fully healed.
  • Always use a skincare product with SPF50 on a healed tattoo*.
    only on healed tattoos. For fresh tattoos we recommend using Balm Tattoo with SPF50 which we sell in the studio.

When the tattoo gets extremely red, starts swelling or bleeding or if you notice the colors changing within the healing process, always contact us directly by sending an email to our studio:
