Information about tattooing

The application of a tattoo

Because tattooing creates a wound, there is always a chance of attracting bloodborne diseases like Hepatitis B and C. That is why you should check if your tattooist works hygienically. A hygienic working method is also important to prevent the infection of your new tattoo.

Make sure that:


A new tattoo can be compared to a graze or scratch. Bad aftercare and unhygienic treatment can cause an infection and scar tissue. Also an infection can effect the final look of your tattoo. If you take care of your fresh tattoo it should take about two to six weeks untill the wound is healed. The tattooist will give written guidelines on the aftercare of your tattoo. Read them well.
