Pirates Loot Tattoo Aftercare Instructions

  1. Aftercare

  2. Take your bandage off the next morning while in the shower by  saturating the bandage with warm water and slowly peeling it back.  After the bandage is removed, wash the tattoo gently with clear antibacterial soap and rinse with warm/hot water. After the shower pat your tattoo gently dry.  Apply a thin layer of ointment to your new tattoo. 

  3. It is recommended to always keep your new tattoo moisturized by applying the ointment thin on your new tattoo twice a day, after washing. Repeat this process for 5 to 7 days, or until tattoo is healed.

  4. Stay away from saunas, swimming pools, gyms, tanning salons and long periods of direct sun light exposure until your new tattoo is completely healed. These things may cause inflammation or damage to your new tattoo.

  5. Try not to consume any type of alcohol for at least 48 hours after your tattoo treatment. Alcohol thins your blood and may affect the outcome of your tattoo.

  6. You can take antibiotics, if any inflammation occurs on your new tattoo.

  7. Keep tattoo away from sun and other irritants. After your tattoo has completely healed apply a high SPF sun block to tattoo to prevent fading.

  8. Do not pick at scabs or dried skin while tattoo is healing. If you do you may pull the color out.

  9. Your tattoo should heal within two weeks.

  10. You may come back for a single re-touch (>15 mins) free of charge if necessary within three months of completion. All re-touch work is free of charge for clients.

  11. Touch Ups


  13. A single touch up (>15 min) is free of charge for a maximum of up to 3 months after the completion of tattoo projects through the studio.

  14. Any tattoo work exceeding 15 minutes will not meet the time requirements for touch ups, and will be applicable to the hourly rate.

  15. Touch up appointments fall under the same guidelines as regular appointments. 48 hour notice is required to re-book or change a touch up appointment. If proper notice is not given the studio reserves the right to deny further free touch up services to that patron(s).
