The first day and the first night the tattoo must be covered with the film (for info see: HOW DO I HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF MY TATTOO?). Sometimes, even on the second night, it is advisable to cover the tattoo with film if it still looks too fresh.

Using the tattoo care kit your work will heal in about seven days, avoid direct contact with clothing during this time wool and synthetics. Use 100% cotton (not fleece garments) such as shirts and t-shirts. Be careful in the first 2/3 days to use only clean clothes and change them often, to avoid bacterial proliferation on clothes due to the healing tattoo serum.
If you have NOT used the specific care kit, you will have to wait longer.
