Before the day

Before getting tattooed, make sure you are well rested, have eaten well and are feeling relaxed.
Please arrive on time, so you have time for a drink and to discuss any details with your artist.
Bring relaxed clothes and do bear in mind that some splatter might occur, so do not bring your best clothing.
We do not tattoo people that are under the influence of any alcohol and/or drugs.
We do not tattoo pregnant women, come and get tattooed after you had your baby!
We recommend that you do not get tattooed if you have any of the following: diabetes, haemophilia, chronic skin conditions, skin allergies, immune disorders, heart and/or vascular diseases or if you are using any anti-coagulant medicines.

Aftercare instructions:

During the tattoo process the skin gets pierced by very small needles resulting in a wound. If you take good care of it, it should take about 4-6 weeks for the tattoo to heal completely,  although general health, physical condition and how you take care of it afterwards also influence the healing process. Your tattoo artist will inform you thoroughly about the aftercare of your new tattoo and will answer any questions that you might have.

  • Once the tattoo session is completed, your tattoo artist will cover it with a professional protective transparent film (skin care tattoo film) – LEAVE IT ON FOR 24 HOURS.
  • After 24 hours, gently remove this protective layer under the shower while spraying it with warm water (this softens the glue that holds it to the skin and makes it easier to remove).
  • Do the following steps immediately after removal of the film:

Treat the uncovered tattoo as following:

  • Wash it twice a day in lukewarm water with a mild, unperfumed, PH neutral soap.
  • After washing it, gently pat dry with a clean towel – do not rub!
  • With clean hands, apply a thin layer of Bepanthen over the tattoo. A thin layer will protect your skin without closing off the pores, so it will better support the healing process of the skin.

During the Healing process:

  • Touch the tattoo as little as possible and if you really must, make sure this is always done with clean hands.
  • Small scabs/flakes will form – this is normal – do not pick these, they will fall off naturally.
  • It is normal that during the healing process the tattoo will itch – do not scratch it – if it gets too much, apply a little bit of Bepanthen.
  • Wear clean and loose clothing and avoid wool or synthetic fabrics.
  • Make sure the sheets you sleep on are clean.
  • Do not cover the tattoo with plasters nor bandages.
  • Baths, swimming pools, saunas, steam and bubble baths are not recommended.
  • Do not expose the tattoo to sunlight or tanning beds.
  • Avoid that the tattoo is touching/resting on non-clean surfaces, use a clean towel over the surfaces (sofa, table…)

Remember that the end result of a tattoo is also the result of the aftercare you put into it. Treat it good and according to these instructions and you shall have a beautiful and long lasting tattoo. Any doubts or questions, do get in touch with us: +31 20 2333527 or tattoo@manifacto.amsterdam

The tattooed skin will stay sensitive to sunlight for quite some time, avoid strong sun for the first year. Always apply sunscreen after – and only after – it is completely healed. A stronger sunscreen is specially advised for colour tattoos.

Contact your doctor in case of extreme redness, swelling, bleeding, discharge, pus, colour changes, pain or if you have any worries about your tattoo.
