Tattoo Aftercare Instructions
How to care for your new tattoo:
A step by step guide to using Aussie Inked tattoo aftercare products to look after your tattoo, minimise scabbing, and speed up the healing process to keep your ink intact.
Remove your bandage as instructed by your tattoo artist. Always wash your hands before touching your new tattoo during the healing period. Don’t pick, rub or scratch your new tattoo and be sure to wear clean, soft clothing that won’t rub. Stay out of direct sunlight and avoid saunas, salt water, chlorinated pools, and soaking in the bath. (Don’t worry - it won’t be like this forever, just until it’s healed!)
Wash your tattoo with CLEAR THE DECK, Soothing Tattoo Wash
Start by washing your hands first then place a few pumps of our concentrated tattoo gel wash in the palm of your hand. Mix it with water to create a lather then gently wipe (don’t rub) over your tattoo. Rinse it off and pat dry with a clean towel or leave it to air dry. Repeat 2 to 3 times a day or as needed and always follow with…
Protect your tattoo with LIFE GOES ON, Tattoo Recovery Gel
. After washing your tattoo, place a few pumps of our Tattoo Recovery Gel in the palm of your hand and gently spread it over your tattoo. Our Tattoo Recovery Gel is designed to glide easily over large tattoos without dragging on the skin. A thin coat is all you need and it dries quickly, leaving the skin feeling soothed, nourished and smelling great, naturally. This process should be repeated throughout the day for the first few weeks of your new tattoo’s life. After your tattoo has healed continue with…
Hydrate and maintain your tattoo with FOREVER & EVER, Daily Moisture Lotion
. Our daily moisture lotion is formulated for everyday use to keep your skin well hydrated and tattoos looking vibrant, sharp and awesome… forever and ever. If you have particularly dry skin you can combine using FOREVER & EVER Daily Moisture Lotion with LIFE GOES ON, Tattoo Recovery Gel
. They’re designed to work independently but complement each other for those of us with extra dry or flaky skin.
Discontinue use if irritation occurs and if symptoms persist consult your health care practitioner. Do not expose our products to direct sun light and store in a cool place below 30º Celsius.
Show your tattoo some love.
