The challenge we had to face when it came to tattoo aftercare.
We put 100% effort into your tattoos so it's only right you get the best aftercare the problem was how would we convince our clients to use our aftercare Because the aftercare we use can't be purchased in shops like regular ointments.
It is a CLASS 1 MEDICAL DEVICE; it's not like natural ointments so we could not tell our customers to buy there own and we could not tell them to buy the stuff online as it would take too long for delivery. Also, this would leave the tattoo open to infection and it's expensive, so the chances of our client's buying it were slim. so the only solution was we would have to buy it in bulk, so we have it in stock at our studio.
Now we were faced with another problem, would the clients buy it? of course not it's expensive. And that's a low blow trying to sell aftercare after you have spent good money at the studio.
So we decided to give our customers the aftercare for FREE a costly investment, but in the long run, it paid off.
ITS THE ALL-IN-ONE TATTOO AFTERCARE SOLUTION.
It's a thin self-adhesive film that provides a moist healing environment during the initial, and most critical, healing stage of a tattoo. It is the new solution that replaces cling film which has been improperly used for years. It protects the new tattoo from friction and provides a WATERPROOF, ANTIBACTERIAL-BARRIER that prevents pathogens and external contaminants from entering the wound.
The film is BREATHABLE, letting oxygen in and allowing excess moisture vapour to be released from the wound. It’s light to wear, FLEXIBLE and stretchable which allows it to be placed anywhere on the body and stay on, up to several days. Reduced scabbing, reduced risk of infection, no rubbing on clothes or other external factors that will damage the tattoo.
We still had another problem we had to face the film needs to be changed, and the best way is for us to do it. The chances of our clients coming back to the studio the next day to get it changed were slim.
So what did we do?
We gave our customers more film to take away with them, and we showed them how to remove it and apply it correctly. We follow up with you through the healing stage to make sure everything is healing correctly. But we were still faced with another problem. There were lots of rumours going around about reactions people could have to this film. These were usually started by other artists trying to justify why they won't invest in it.
People get reactions to creams ointments and even some tattoo ink but it's very uncommon so we came up with another solution we invested in two leading brands of proper tattoo healing ointment.
We also give you this as well as the film so if that film does not suit you or you don't like it, you can switch to the ointment. In all the time we have used film for healing tattoos, we have only had two reactions.
Because we follow up with our clients, we can spot this early on so your tattoos will still heal properly without any problems. The ointments we give you are the perfect moisturiser to use once the film is removed.
I have tried every method you can think of for healing tattoos, and this way is by far the best. Our aftercare is proper aftercare, and we don't charge you any Extra for this.
The first piece of protective tattoo film should be left on for 24 hours after That you can remove the film, to remove the film lift a corner and stretch it, then slowly and carefully start to peel it off.
The film can be hard to pull off the skin so simply let some warm water run under the tattoo film so that it becomes loose and easy to remove. When removing the film its best to do it under warm water like a gentle shower. Once the film is removed give it a good wash but do not soak it, then you can pat it dry, then leave to air dry for 5 minutes.
Before you start applying the new film, make sure your hands are clean.
For large areas, we advise cutting the strips into smaller pieces to make it more comfortable to apply. And always apply the film in a flat, neutral position. The joints, knees or elbows should never be completely straight or bent when applying.
Once the new film is on you should leave this on for no more than 6 days. If you experience any irritation or rash from the film, please remove the film and get in contact with us.
The ideal recommended method would be to keep the tattoo covered and protected during the whole healing process. You can shower and bathe normally as the film is water proof, and will stay put on the skin even when immersed in water. To avoid the adhesive bond from weakening, excessive exposure to water should be avoided.
After 6 days you should remove the film and give it a good wash and pat it dry, your tattoo should be almost healed by now.
For the final healing, stage apply the recommended ointment twice a day.
Keep out of swimming pools and avoid exposure to the sun and sunbeds.
And keep it clean if you are unsure about anything don't hesitate to contact us.
