All tattooing is done in a clean, Health Department approved studio. Individual sterilized needles and tubes are used, along with wipes, bandages, colours, etc. Anything that is not disposable (eg. Power box, clip cord, armrest) is covered with plastic to prevent cross-contamination. Highline Tattooing & Body Piercing studio is regularly inspected by the Health Department and operates ABOVE the high standards set forth by them.
How to Care For Your New Tattoo
Remove bandage after 1 to 3 hours, gently wash with warm soapy water, make sure to remove all traces of blood, bloodspots and excess cream. DO NOT REBANDAGE. Gently rub in a small amount of Bepanthen cream so that it disappears into the tattoo.
A protective scale will form on your tattoo 1 to 3 days after leaving the studio. It is there for the protection of your tattoo and will fall away by itself after 5 to 10 days provided you use the recommended cream Bepanthen. Apply the cream at least 4 times daily, use only a small amount and rub in well. DO NOT pick or scratch the scale as this will damage your tattoo.
Gently wash the tattoo when you shower, pat tattoo dry with towel, DO NOT wipe, DO NOT try to soak the scab or scale off, DO NOT soak in a bath. DO NOT expose your new tattoo to sunshine for at least 2 weeks. DO NOT go swimming in salt water or swimming pools until all the scale has fallen away. DO NOT apply Vaseline
or greasy lotions of any kind.
