Ye Olde Cock Tattoo Emporium Tattoo Aftercare Package Now Available!

Complimentary Aftercare Package Provided With Every Tattoo!
Upon completion of your tattoo you will be provided with a mini care package courtesy of Ye Olde Cock Tattoo Emporium. This includes a measured to fit piece of UltraDerm Film Bandage (similar to Saniderm), one complimentary sachet of Hustle Butter (.25oz) and one bar of Dove Unscented soap for sensitive skin. For larger tattoos, you will be able to purchase larger versions of Hustle Butter or Bepanthen (whichever is in stock). In addition to the latter, clients are expected to follow these steps in order to ensure that your tattoo heals properly and looks great for years to come:
  1. At the end of your tattoo session your arm will be temporarily bandaged. Keep this bandage on for 2 to 5 hours. This is to help prevent infection and will ensure that your body recovers quickly and without complication (e.g. infection).
  2. Wash your hands each time before touching the tattooed areas.
  3. After removing the bandage wash with a hypoallergenic or at the very minimum an unscented soap (e.g. Dove Soap makes both kinds) with warm water. Pat dry with a towel, do not rub! Let air dry for a hour before applying aftercare products (e.g. Hustle Butter/Bepanthen).
  4. If using the UltraDerm Film, clean the area and apply the UltraDerm Film Bandage (or Saniderm). Take note that your tattoo will accumulate fluid beneath the bandage. This is normal, so don't worry! Resist the urge to release the fluid or tamper with the bandage. Keep the bandage on for 3 to 5 days.
  5. Remove the UltraDerm Film Bandage under warm water and repeat steps 2 & 3. You will noticed that much of the skin/ink will look to have been pulled off your tattooed area. Don't worry. This is normal. Let air dry for 2 to 3 hours before applying aftercare products (e.g. Hustle Butter/Bepanthen).
  6. Apply Hustle Butter or Bepanthen (or a product of your choice) to your tattoo every 2 to 3 hours. Do this 2-3 times a day for the first 2-3 days if using Bepanthen or for 4 weeks if using Hustle Butter. Do not put too much product on. You should be putting just enough to make the surface area soft. Whilst I like Hustle Butter, Bepanthen works really well in helping your tattoo heal without flaky skin or peeling. Do not pick or scratch at the tattoo. Doing so could seriously affect the look of your tattoo when healed and could create scarring. Apply after care product as needed (when your tattoo feels itchy, dry or tight). Repeat steps 2 and 3 regularly.
  7. Avoid direct sunlight on the tattoo until it has healed completely. Do NOT use sunscreen until your tattoo is healed! Once healed, apply a broad spectrum waterproof sunblock with an SPF of at least 30 every 2 hours. Excessive exposure to sun can damage tattoos (e.g. fading, bubbling effect, etc).
  8. Do NOT soak your tattoo in water. This means NO hot tubs, saunas, pools, or lakes until the tattoo is completely healed. As a general rule of thumb, this takes 3 to 4 weeks.
  9. Whilst infection is rare, following the above steps should help ensure that your tattoo not only looks great, but that it heals properly. Failure to comply can result in your tattoo being damaged. Whilst itching, redness and irritation is normal, if your tattoo begins to blister seek help from a medical professional immediately (CLSC, Family Doctor, etc).
  10. Contact me directly if you have any questions about your tattoo.

Nota Bene: The Aftercare package is available to clients getting a new tattoo.
