99% of the times people start feeling bad or sick during a tattoo session it's usually because they dont follow these things. 

The healthier and better you feel, the tattoo will become less painful and you will be able to get tattooed for longer. It will also be easier for me to tattoo.

If you would feel bad or sick in anyway, nausea, dizzy or anything else it's important to let me know!

• No alcohol 24 hours before the tattoo.

• Dont use any numbing cream.

• Be well rested and healty.
• Eat something proper as close as possible to the session, so you have as much energy as possible during the day.

• Bring something to eat, for example fruit, sandwiches, snacks, soda or anything else. Coffe and tee are available in the studio. 

• You can use a softening cream on the area where there the tattoo is going to be a week before your appointment. (Optional)

The tattoo color is very hard to get off so don't have any clothes you really care about.

And use loosefitting clothes so they dont rub on the new tattoo.

You can sometimes become cold when getting tattooed, so you can bring extra clothes and/or a blanket. Some like to bring extra socks, gloves or a warm cap. And if you are going to lay down you can bring a pillow.

But be sure to have everything newly washed, especially if you have any pets


To get a good end result it's very important to be careful with the aftercare of your new tattoo.

Even if a tattooer have done everything correctly there's still a risk for infection, scarring or colorloss if you don't care for your new tattoo. 

When the tattoo is finished, it will be coverd in plastic and there are two different ways to do this.

The one i mostly use is a type of medical plastic that's lika a sticker, and the other one is with regular cling film.

1. Medical plastic

This type of plastic is like a sticker you put on the tattoo and leave it on for a maximum of 24 hours. 

It's a very good alternative because it's very flexible and breathable but it still protects the tattoo from dust and bacteria.

Although it is rare, it is a possibility to have an allergic reaction to the glue from the plastic. So if you have had problems before with plasters and tejp on the skin it, could be a good idea to use cling wrap instead. 

If you would feel something isn't right with the tattoo, if it becomes red, irritated, warm or anything else, remove the plastic right away and clean the tattoo. If you see a hole in the plastic or that liquids are goin in or out of plastic, remove it right away as well so dust and bacteria won't get into the tattoo.

It can stick to the skin very hard, so the easiest way to remove it is in the shower under running water. 

Clean according to the instructions below:

2. Cling film

When the tattoo is finished it will be coverd with plastic and have the plastic on for 3 hours. It might need to be on longer depending on the situation, then you might need to wear it overnight. 

Clean according to the instructions below:


When it's time to remove the medical plastic or the cling film, remove the plastic with clean hands, wash your hands again so you have clean hands when cleaning your tattoo. This will be easiest done in the shower.

Clean the tattoo carefully & thoroughly with luke warm water with a liquid soap, for example Lactacyd.

Dab the tattoo dry gently with a clean towel, paper towel or airdry. Then gently put some softening cream on the tattoo, you can use a cream like Bephanten or Tattoo mender. 

You want to avoid the tattoo drying out completly, so use the cream when neccecary. It's usually 2-4 times per day. It usually needs to be moisturized more often the first week. 

Do not put on a thick layer of cream, put on a thinn layer each time so you dont suffocate the tattoo.  Apply as much as the skin can absorb without feeling sticky.

Keep your tattoo clean, use only clean clothes and beddings against the tattoo, and do not put on the cream with dirty hands!

After a few days, scabs will become visible on the tattoo and they will fall off within 1-2 weeks.

Dont pick or scratch on them, let them fall off by themselves, so when you put on the cream on the tattoo, do so carefully. 
If you pick or scratch the tattoo it can result in bad healing. 

The tattoo is not completly healed until 4-6 weeks. But it can also take longer before the skin have completely recovered. 

• No larger amout of alcohol 24 hours after.
• Clothes that rub against the tattoo during the healing process, especially while the scabs are still there, and always use clean clothes against the newly done tattoo to avoid infections.

• Don't scratch the tattoo during the healing process. (If you scratch or have clothes that rub against the tattoo, it can result in bad healing, which can result in colorloss, infections or scarring.)

• Avoid physical exercise the first week. 
• Don't shower to long, and dont be in lakes, seas, pools, bathtubs, jacuzzis, saunas etc for 2 weeks.

• No solarium or direct sunlight on the tattoo for 4 weeks.

You can keep moisturizing the tattoo to keep the tattoo looking nice. And its always a good thing to use sunscreen when spending longer periods in the sun.
