    Top tips for tattoo care


    1. Keep the tattoo covered for AT LEAST 1 to 2 hours.

    2. Gently cleanse the area, stay out of the sun, and stay away from heat

    3. Use only oil or oil-based ointment for the first 3 days. We use Hustle Butter Deluxe Organic Aftercare.

    4. Avoid plasma crusting on your tattoo. If it does appear, gently wash the area with warm water.

    5. After the first 3 days, keep your skin moisturised with all natural lotion. Or, better still, keep using the Hustle Butter Deluxe Organic twice a day. A little goes a long way, so don’t overdo it!

    6. If you are experiencing ANY problems with your new tattoo, give the parlour a call on 01245 690 290
