Tattoo Care

Every tattoo gets under the skin, every tattoo tells a story. In order to preserve the work of art for as long as possible, the correct healing and care of the tattoo is essential - because every new tattoo is a wound and therefore work for the skin.


The faster the tattoo wound is closed…

...the lower the risk of infection from the outside

...the less wound cleaning and flushing takes place

...the more color particles can remain in the skin.

A support of the wound healing leads to a faster closure of the wound and thus to a better tattoo result and more intense colors.


Tips during the healing phase:

  • It is normal for the tattoo to be itchy during the healing period. Please do not scratch, otherwise there is a risk that scars will form and the tattoo will become blotchy.
  • With sufficient treatment, i.e. applying cream 3-4 times a day, a crust does not normally form on the wound. If a crust has formed, you should not peel it off. It is better to continue applying cream regularly until the scab comes off by itself, otherwise there is a risk of scraping off parts of the tattoo color.
  • The fresh tattoo heals best if enough air can get to the wound. Therefore, you should wear airy clothing and avoid friction. We also recommend products that have a breathable ointment film, such as Bepanthen® Wound and Healing Ointment.
  • Support your body in healing wounds with a balanced diet, enough fluids (approx. 1.5 to 2 liters per day; no alcohol if possible) and enough sleep.

care instructions

With breathable plaster

Only change plasters if necessary (only if wound fluid has collected underneath, otherwise leave on for 3-4 days). Be sure to wash your hands beforehand. Tattoo with mild soap rinse and gently dab with a lint-free cloth. Leave pleasure on injured skin area.

With cling film

  • Leave film on for a maximum of 4 hours or overnight.
  • Rinse the tattoo with mild soap and gently dab it with a lint-free cloth until the 4th day.
  • Apply a thin layer of cream 3-6 times a day. (Bepanthen, Calendula Ointment, Tattoomed)

From the 4th day

  • Remove patch completely.
  • Avoid sports and swimming for 2 weeks.
  • Wear loose clothing over the tattoo
  • Keep tattoo clean
  • Continue to treat with a thin layer of cream


  • Long showers, baths or stays in the pool (avoid at least 6 weeks)
  • Scratching or frequent touching of the tattoo increases the risk of infection and subsequent scarring
  • Drink too little. Plenty of water and a balanced diet help your skin to regenerate faster.
  • Sun. UV radiation attacks the color pigments and fades tattoos. Think of sufficient sun protection!
