The First Week

Be prepared for the initial color intensity of your procedure to be significantly brighter or darker, you will also notice it may appear red immediately after the procedure. This should fade in a few days as it heals. Depending on the procedure, the area may darken before it fades. It will take time for this transition based upon how the tattoo was applied, what technique was used, and your own natural healing. Flaking and peeling is normal and to be expected during the first few weeks.

Pmu Healing Process

Ice packs protected with a cloth may be applied as necessary to reduce swelling. Do not put ice directly on the area, make sure there is a towel or cloth between the ice and your skin. Bleeding and bruising are expected the first day or two after the procedure.

Wash your hands before touching any treated area. Do not expose the area to dirty or unsanitary conditions. Itching and scabbing are normal. Once the scab or a dark crust form allow it to peel off naturally. DO NOT PICK, PEEL, OR SCRATCH the treated area as it could cause scarring or changes in the natural skin color. Removing the scab could also increase healing time. If the tattoo is located in a high friction area, or if you have a tendency to scratch, cover it with a bandage. Do not shave over the treated area until all scabbing has healed. If the removal is on the face, no makeup is to be applied in procedure area for (One Week) after the procedure. After any eyeliner procedure, use new mascara. Do not use an eyelash curler for two weeks. Do not expose your healing skin to direct sun, tanning beds, saunas, saltwater, chlorinated pools, skin creams, lotions other than what you have been instructed to use for 2 weeks following your procedure.

The treated should remain as dry as possible for at least three days. You may continue to shower, and you can gently wash the treated area with mild soap and water, but pat dry it as soon as possible (do not rub). Do not expose the area directly under a shower spray, no scrubbing the area, do not swim or sit in a spa, and do not soak your body where the area is submerged in water.

If itchiness develops and is irritating, you may apply an anti-itch ointment after the first week of treatment or bandage or tape over the area. Excessive scratching on the treated area may cause additional irritation and possible scarring.

  • Keep the wrap on your tattoo for as long as your artist advises. If we haven’t instructed you, do not leave it on for more than six hours.

  • Do not submerge your new tattoo in water for up to one month.

  • When drying your tattoo, always pat it dry (do not rub) with a fresh towel or paper towel which leaves no product remnants.

  • When using aftercare lotion, it should be completely absorbed by your skin and you should not see any white. If you see a white layer, rub excess lotion off your tattoo.

  • Keep your hands off your tattoo except to wash it. Never pick or peel at your tattoo.
