After your appointment...
Please Note: Healing varies with every individual. All forms of cosmetic tattooing can cause redness or swelling. Other common side effects during the healing process include itchiness, soreness, scabbing, and flaking/peeling. Your initial results will appear darker and bolder than desired but will typically fade 30-50% during healing and once healed. After your initial results have healed, it is common if they look patchy. This is why all cosmetic tattooing services are a two step process. Any patchiness, boldness, and color can be perfected at your touch-up session.
Aftercare instructions will be provided to you after your initial appointment. Your artist will additionally go over these instructions in detail and is available for any questions or concerns during the healing process.
