Pre Care & After Care

Cosmetic Tattoo


Please read the following advice carefully:


  • Liver disease – high risk of infection
  • Compromised skin near treatment area
  • High Risk of Keloid scarring
  • Skin conditions like psoriasis, dermatitis etc. near the treatment area
  • Pregnancy/Nursing
  • Chemotherapy/Radiation
  • The Following medical conditions require a note from your doctor giving consent:  Diabetes Type 1 and Type 2, high blood pressure, auto-immune disease, thyroid/Grave’s disease. Any other medical conditions that causes slow healing or high risk of infection.

Topical Anesthetic Advice:

  • Allergic reaction can occur from any anesthetics used during the procedure. If you do suffer from an allergic reaction, you should contact your doctor immediately. Allergic reaction response may show through redness, swelling, rash, blistering, dryness or any other symptoms associated with an allergic reaction.
  • Numbness – We cannot accept responsibility if the area to be treated does not respond to the numbing cream. Each individual is different according to skin type. Some clients report the area to be completely numb, while others may experience some discomfort.


  • We suggest that you be on some sort of Cold Sore preventative. If you have a history of cold sore outbreak, please see your doctor to get prescribed a preventative medication to take before and after your procedure. If you have not had an outbreak, please take an over the counter preventative like L-Lysine(Two weeks prior and two weeks after your appointment). The outbreak of a cold sore can affect pigment retention so prevention is best.
  • Expect treated areas to be tender for the next few days. The procedure area may be red, swollen or have a discharge of interstitial fluid and blood for at least 12 hours post procedure. Gently dab off excess interstitial fluid from the procedure area with a clean tissue and distilled water or bottled water. Remember that you should wipe off the interstitial fluid to avoid getting a thick crust.
  • The procedure area will be much darker for 5-7 days post procedure. The true color will not be visible for 4 weeks post procedure and for each color refresher.
  • Do not touch the healing pigmented area with dirty fingers. Touching the treated area with your fingers, unclean cotton swabs, old products or other, may result in infection. If you need to touch the area, use a clean cotton swab or wash your hands prior.
  • No sauna, jacuzzi, steam, exercise hot yoga, swimming in chlorine pools or in the ocean till the area is completely healed after initial procedure or color refreshers.
  • Do not expose the area to the sun until the procedure area has healed. The sun will fade the pigment and slow down healing process. 
  • Do not wear makeup on the treated area until it has healed. You might cause an infection or otherwise damage the permanent makeup.
  • Perfecting visits should be scheduled between 6-12 weeks post procedure. All permanent makeup procedures are at least two-step process and for some three step process. Results cannot be determined after just one appointment.
  • If you resume the Retin-A, Retinol, or Retinoids after the 30 days, the continued use will fade your permanent makeup prematurely.
  • DO NOT USE any lightening and peeling products that contain AHA’s, Vitamin A, Retinol A, Glycolic/Lactic Acids on the treated area; it will fade your tattoo/permanent makeup prematurely.
  • If you are out in the sun a lot, have oily skin, using Retinol products, chemical peels, then you will need color refreshers more often than the normal.


  • Discontinue use of any eyelash growth serums like Latisse, as it can cause sensitivity/affect pigment at least 4 weeks prior to your procedure
  • Eyelash growth serums (Latisse, Rapid Lash or any other) SHOULD NOT BE USED 4 WEEKS BEFORE AND AFTER PROCEDURE.
  • Do not use mascara or any eye make up after the procedure until it has healed completely. Purchase a new mascara and eyeliner tube; the old tube may have bacteria in it. This includes all eye makeup.
  • Do not use eyelash curler for a few days before and after procedure.
  • Do not wear your contact lenses for 72 hours post procedure, wear glasses. If eyes are irritated do not use contacts until your eyes are healed. Clean contact lenses can be worn 72 hours after the procedure. 
  • Do not apply individual lashes or strip eyelashes to the eyelash area. You will pull off your pigment.
  • If you apply make up or wear lash extensions, you do so at your own risk. 
  • Cleanse and moisturize the area while eyes are closed and with clean hands or clean Q-tips being used.


  • Keep lips moisturized post procedure using Aquaphor, Lip Balm, Grapeseed oil, or After- Inked ointment or any moisturizing product geared toward healing and moisturizing both.
  • Avoid eating spicy food and drinking directly from the cup (use a straw).
  • Be very careful when brushing your teeth and try to avoid getting toothpaste on your lips.
  • Do not lick your lips as it will cause the pigments to fall off.
  • Do not peel at the pigments scabbing off as it will cause scarring


  • If bandage film was applied, leave on for 3-4 days and then apply the following:
  • Use "The Ordinary: Buffet +copper peptides" 24 hours after your appointment twice daily. At the three week mark, add "Vitamin C" and "Vitamin E" oils twice daily alongside the Ordinary for 6-8 weeks post service.


  • A clear film will be applied to the area and should be kept on for 24-36 hours. After the film is removed, daily cleansing and moisturizing should be followed for 10 days. Touch ups should be done after 14 days if needed.


  • Dry heal for the first 3 days. No water, no shampoo, no saunas, no pools, no excessive sweating.
  • Don't touch your scalp at all with your fingers.
  • Start rinsing your scalp with just water from day 4-6 and start applying moisturizer

  • The first film should be left on for about 3-4 days following initial service.


  • The best way to remove the film  under running warm water. Find an edge of the bandage, and then to pull it back over itself in the direction of the hair growth. The best way is to try removing the film in a warm shower. 


  • Wash your tattoo with warm water as needed(when sweat, oil, dirt, etc lands over the tattoo). Use your CLEANSE to wash the tattoo. 

  • Rinse thoroughly, however DON’T soak the area. Keep shower time to a minimum. Pat dry with clean paper towels. Make sure to continue to take care of it by applying a small amount of GLOSS throughout the day for 10 days.
