* Remove the bandage after 2 hours, wash with lukewarm water and soap, and dry    gently.

* Apply a thin layer of "Bepanthen Plus" (can be purchased in all pharmacies without a doctor's prescription).

* Continue applying a thin layer of the cream every 6 hours for the first 4 weeks.

* Do not expose the tattoo to the sun for the whole treatment period.

* As apposed to this soaking in still water, such as a bath, a pool, the sea and so on, is totally forbidden!

* During the recovering period, the tattoo coagulates and peels several times. This procedure may cause a strong sense of itchiness. Do not scratch or "help" the tattoo peel, under any circumstance!

* During the full recovering period, you must keep the tattoo clean and apply the cream. It's recommended to wear clothes that will not chafe or rub against the tattoo. Also, you should air out the tattoo as much as possible, and under no circumstance should you bandage it.

* When the tattoo looks like part of the skin, it stops peeling and isn't shiny – you will know that it is healed. Only then can you stop the treatment.

* Even after the tattoo has healed, it's recommended to apply sunscreen-cream when being exposed to the sun, this is to prevent the tattoo from aging quickly.

* After 2 months you should come back to the studio for a check up.
