Keep the patch on for a minimum of 6 hours. We recommend leaving it on overnight whenever you feel comfortable and safe. If you decide to remove the patch before going to sleep, follow the instructions in the next section to properly remove the patch and clean your tattoo.
On your first night, there is a chance that your tattoo will continue to bleed. Blood can dry overnight and stick to your clothes or bedding. If this happens, remove the fabric carefully. DO NOT force him or be rough with him. If it still doesn’t come off, moisten the area with cool water and gently slide it out.
New tattoos sometimes “cry” for the first few days, meaning that the plasma and ink form a thin, wet layer on the skin. This can be cleaned with a clean paper towel. Press the paper towel to the skin and remove it. Do not wipe the tattoo, do not be rough with it. Don’t panic when you see the tattoo colors on the paper towel or your hands while cleaning it. This is simply an excess of ink secreted from the surface or the skin.
To avoid stains, use darker shades of towels and sheets and wear dark clothing.
Before you begin, make sure your hands are clean and you have a fragrance-free antibacterial soap ready. Avoid scented soap, moisturizing drops, or scrubs.
There is no need to recover the tattoo, but keep in mind that your tattoo is a wound and when unwrapped it is prone to dirt and bacteria that can cause infection. Avoid direct contact with any surface.
Apply moisturizer 2-3 times a day (remember a thin layer and after the third day) For the first 15 days or until your tattoo starts to flake/peel like a sunburn.
Your tattoo should be fully healed in 3-4 weeks.
If you have extremely sensitive skin, the cream can cause breakouts. If this happens, reduce the amount of your daily application.
After the first few days, your tattoo may itch or start to form scaly scabs. They will fall off on their own, so DO NOT SCRATCH YOUR TATTOO. Doing so may cause some of the pigment to disappear and your tattoo may not heal properly. Stay hydrated and the scabs will eventually dissipate.
It is highly recommended to use clean towels, bedding, and clothing during the healing process.
Showering is fine, however, DO NOT soak your tattoo for at least 2 weeks. This means that you should not swim, bathe, or soak your tattoo in water for long periods.
Avoid direct sunlight on your tattoo for at least 3 weeks and your tattoo will be fully healed. After that, we recommend that you put sunscreen (minimum SPF 50) on your tattoo whenever it is in direct sunlight for the rest of its life. The sun will undoubtedly cause damage and compromise the longevity of your tattoo.
Wear loose-fitting clothing (preferably cotton) and avoid tightening accessories like bra straps and tight waists over a new tattoo. Avoid dirty, sweaty, or itchy clothes, as they can create healing problems.
Do not sleep with pets for the first 15 days.
During this period, which we will call the inflammatory period, our piercing will be ‘tender’ because of which it can re-inflame, so we place a slightly larger bar or ring which will leave space for the skin to inflame without irritation problems, during this time it is important to clean the wound with a sterile isotonic solution hopefully in spray to manipulate the perforation as little as possible, with the help of a closed-knit gauze we can clean our perforation once a day.
If the jewelry falls out of your piercing call the nearest store immediately, do not force the jewelry to enter it may cause damage to your skin
If everything has gone as planned, your piercing will be ready to change the jewelry for a shorter bar. This point is important since when making the jewelry change we foresee that the piercing will twist and lose angulation if this happens it can cause problems such as hypertrophic scars and others.
After the jewelry changes your piercing will be better, continue using the isotonic solution. And go to regular reviews.
At Stattoos we work with ASTM F136 implant grade Titanium jewelry, which certifies it as biocompatible and suitable for human implants.
