Aftercare

The moment you leave our studio with your new tattoo, the most important part of the process starts. The healing process

THE FIRST 2 DAYS

Approximately 2-3 hours after your tattoo-session, you must remove the foil (unless your tattooist has recommended otherwise).

Wash the tattoo gently but thoroughly in lukewarm water using Sorry Mom Tattoo Soap. This way you wash off surplus ink, fluid and blood. Dip your tattoo dry with a paper towel or a clean towel.

Apply a thin layer of Sorry Mom Tattoo Balm on the tattooed area. It is extremely important not to use too much balm, as the tattoo must be able to breathe. You have applied just enough, if you are unable to see the balm after it has been applied.

If you are going to bed or know that you need a giant woolly sweater in a little while, you can easily apply a new coat of foil to your tattoo. This is particularly recommended if you sleep in white linen… Just remember to lubricate your tattoo before. Wash, dry and lubricate with each foil change.

THE NEXT 10 DAYS

Your tattoo should be kept moist, so that there is no ulceration. If you get a wound, there is a risk that the color will fall off with the wound. Therefore, it is important, that your tattoo is kept moist all the time.

During this period, the wash-dry-apply is called for about 3-5 times a day.
Your tattoo still needs to be washed gently but thoroughly, in lukewarm water and with a non-perfumed soap – and it should still be dipped dry with a kitchen towel or a clean towel.

Then apply a thin coat of Sorry Mom Tattoo Balm on the tattooed area.

SUBSEQUENT AND

CONTINUED CARE

Just as you look after your body and your skin, you also need to take good care of your tattoo. Among other things, it also involves the use of sunscreen. The rays of the sun are harmful to the skin – and they make the colors of your tattoo fade if you don’t use sunscreen.

We highly recommend Sorry Moms Sunscreen SPF 30. It protects your tattoo (and the rest of the body) from the sun, is water resistant and rich in beta-carotene and vitamin E.

Lubricate your tattoo regularly with lotion. If you have very dry skin, your tattoo will look less sharp and “whitish”. We recommend using Sorry Mom Tattoo Lotion when you need it. The lotion is rich in vitamin E and keeps colors and lines sharper for longer.
