When you leave the studio, you may remove the plastic wrap after one hour. Please do not rewrap the tattoo. After two days, apply a minimal amount of aftercare balm twice daily. Your tattoo will peel and scab – this is normal; please do not pick it. Let it heal naturally. Do not swim or soak in a spa, bath or ocean for two weeks or until the tattoo has completely healed. Showering will not affect your new tattoo. It’s possible that excess tattoo ink may stain linen, so we suggest you protect these items. If you have any concerns or questions at all, please contact us.
