Taurus Tattoo Studio Aftercare Guide

Tattoo Aftercare

We use the finest tattoo equipment available. All our equipment is sterile and disposable; we do not re-use needles or colours etc. You will be given the best advice available on the proper aftercare.

The aftercare is the sole responsibility of the customer, so we cannot accept any liability after you leave the studio.

A cover will be placed over your new tattoo, please remove it after approx. 2hrs.
For the first few days the main priority should be to treat the tattoo with a view to preventing a scab from forming. The best way to do this is to wash the tattoo area 2-3 times a day to prevent a build up of dried blood and fluids on the new tattoo. This will reduce the amount of scab you get, speed up the healing process and give a better and brighter tattoo.
Wash your tattoo with a mild soap and rinse with warm water. Pat the area dry, do not rub, and then allow to air dry for 5 minutes. Apply the cream liberally, we recommend bepanthen nappy rash cream, then wrap your tattoo with cling film. We recommend that you keep your tattoo wrapped for the first 3 or 4 days and then continue to apply the cream for the following 4 or 5 days to prevent your new tattoo from drying out and scabbing.
Do not sunbathe. Do not swim or use saunas etc.
Aftercare instructions will be given to you before you leave the studio.

Piercing Aftercare

Wash your hands thoroughly. Never touch your piercing or jewellery with dirty hands.

Saturate a cotton ball with warm water, and gently wipe away any "crusties" that have gathered around the piercing site. Throw the cotton ball away.

Apply savlon antiseptic wound wash to the piercing site and jewellery. Make sure you get the wash everywhere. Rotating the jewellery is not really necessary unless you notice it trying to "stick" to your skin.

Rinse the piercing and jewellery several times with warm water.

Dry your piercing with a clean paper towel, and throw the towel away.
