It is important that all payments be sent as a "friends and family payment" to avoid unnecessary fees being charged. If you send with "Buyer Protection" there will be fees charged on my side and I will therefore have to add this cost to the final price of your tattoo.

After the tattoo comes the most important part; the aftercare!

  • Your tattoo will be covered in a layer of DermalizePro at the end of your appointment. This should form a second skin across the tattoo and will ideally remain stuck to the area until it is removed in the shower. 

  • Leave the Dermalize on for the first two nights after your tattoo. When you wake up after the second night go into the shower and run the warm water across the Dermalize for around 5 minutes. This will warm the glue and make it easier to remove. 

  • Take a corner of the Dermalize and stretch a small section of the plastic to weaken the adhesive before peeling it back off of your tattoo. Continue this stretch and peel method until you have completely removed it from your tattoo.

  • Shower (no baths) under warm/hot water for about 10 minutes using Sorry Mom Body Wash, which can be purchased at the studio. Alternatively use an unscented hand wash like carex to thoroughly clean the area of any residue. Only use your hand to wash the area, no sponges etc.


  • Air dry the tattoo for around 30 minutes if possible, or pat dry with kitchen roll at a push. 

  • Once the area is completely dry apply a thin layer of Sorry Mom Tattoo Balm, which can be purchased at the studio.

  • It's important not to put too much lotion on the tattoo so only apply a thin layer, ensuring that the lotion is fully absorbed into the skin, allowing the tattoo to breathe and heal.

  • Repeat the above process morning and evening, with an extra application of Sorry Mom during the day required until fully healed, usually taking around 2 weeks in total. If you are unsure about your aftercare product please feel free to get in touch and ask. 


    Don't wrap the tattoo in cling film during the day, just wear loose fitting clothing and allow the tattoo to breathe as much as possible.
