Remove the cling film when you arrive home. Do not under any circumstances wrap your tattoo up again! This can lead to infections.

If you are using SkinLock, leave it on for 24 hours.

Gently wash your tattoo with warm soapy water and gently pat it dry with a clean paper towel. Do not use a bath or tea towel as they have a higher risk of transferring bacteria. 

Let your tattoo dry for at least a day before applying any cream to it. 

Only apply a very thin layer to avoid clogging up your pores.
