The first few days will determine the following years.
It's very important to take proper care of your new tattoo. The PDF available for download here explains everything step by step. If you follow our instructions, you'll have lasting enjoyment of your new tattoo.
On the first day
Remove the protective film after about 4 hours and wash it with pH-neutral soap and lukewarm water. Pat the tattoo dry with a paper towel. Do not rub. Apply a thin layer of tattoo ointment. The skin must now be allowed to breathe, so don't cover it with a film again.
During the healing period (2 weeks)
1. Apply a thin layer of tattoo ointment 3-4 times a day
2. Don't visit tanning booths, saunas, or swimming pools
3. Apply tattoo ointment as protection before showering
4. Minimise athletic activity
The scab, also called the crust, protects the skin and your new tattoo during the healing process. Please do not scratch it. It will fall off on its own.
For the rest of your life
To prevent the colours of your tattoo from losing their intensity, we recommend that you always use a good sunscreen (at least SPF 25; for colour tattoos, at least SPF 50). Your Giahi team will be delighted to help you with any questions. Don't hesitate to call us, write us an email, or stop by - we're always happy to see you."
