Care instructions

Remove the plastic wrap when you get home.
There is no need to put a new wrap, except if the tattoo still leaks a lot of fluids when you go to sleep, you can put a film on it for the first night. Remember to clean the tattoo well before this.
You can keep the second skin for max. 2 days, and it should be removed with cold water.
Rinse the tattoo well and gently rub away the tissue fluid that has formed on the image with clean fingers.
It is best to keep the tattoo as clean as possible of any dirt that forms, because when it dries, thick and hard scabs can form on the tattoo.

Apply a very thin layer of moisturizer in the mornings and evenings (like a thin moisturizer that doesn't contain any extra magic like perfumes, vitamins or hippopotamus foot fat). Erisan is a good brand with fragrance-free products suitable for sensitive skin.
The more and more often you apply moisturizer, the easier it is for bacteria to get stuck in a moist wound. So remember to moisturize in moderation and preferably keep the tattoo dry and clean.

You can wash the tattoo with mild soap once or twice a day.

The tattoo may still be red for a few days and a bruise may even form around it. This is normal and nothing to worry about.

Protect the tattoo from the sun carefully during the first month.

Don't scratch or pick at the tattoo, even if flakes come off easily.

Keep pets and hair away from your tattoo until the top layer of skin has healed.

Avoid blood-thinning products such as alcohol and caffeine until the tattoo is no longer leaking fluids.

After cleaning, do not dry the tattoo with a rough towel etc., but rather let it air dry, or pat it dry with a clean paper towel.

Avoid swimming, saunas and heavy exercise for the first couple of weeks.

After 2-3 weeks, the uppermost layers of the skin have healed, but the lower layers repair themselves up to 3-4 months.
