Here at London Inkaholics® we are specialised in custom work and we really enjoy transforming your ideas into the beautiful tattoos you will cherish all your life. We think that every tattoo is special and it needs to be done in a highly professional manner, and that the customer needs to be treated the same way.

Aftercare

 
1. A cover will be placed over your new tattoo to protect it from dust, dirt and infection in its initial stages of healing. This cover MUST be changed with a new one after 3 hours.
2. Remove the cover and wash your tattoo with luke warm water and a mild soap.
3. Pat the tattoo dry. DO NOT rub as this may pull any scabbing off and result in color loss. Apply Bepanthen aftercare ointment, and cover with new cling film .
4. Over the first few days, wash as above two to three times per day and apply Bepanthen ointment after each wash and keep it covered in cling film for around 3 days.
5. As the tattoo heals you may find that it starts to feel tight. To relieve this we advise a small amount of Bepanthen (nappy rash ointment), which is available at Boots, Tesco, Asda at the baby section. other chemists and most .
6. Your scabbing should generally last around four to five days depending on your individual healing rate.
7. Your tattoo will then have dry, shiny, new skin layers over it for a week or so. A general moisturiser e.g Bepanthen can be applied to aid healing (only after those first 3 days. )
8. If you are told to use the cling film method, change your cling film three times a day, for the first three days. Repeat steps 2 and 3 every time you change it. In the shop you might get ta custom aftercare recommended by one of the tattoo artists please follow those guidelines
 
• DO NOT pick at the scabbing as this will lift the colour out of your tattoo and cause patchiness.
• DO NOT soak your tattoo in the bath until ALL the scabbing has lifted.
• DO NOT swim in chlorinated water until ALL the scabbing has lifted.
After this you will need to apply sun block when in the sun. UV rays will bleach your colour
If you have any problems or concerns with your tattoo, do not hesitate to contact us. After all, it is our artwork as well as your tattoo.
