Tattoo Aftercare
The Aftercare of your tattoo is very important and you should take great care of keeping it clean.

Zooz Tattooz recommends the following as minimum care:

  1. Keep your tattoo wrapped in it’s dressing for 3 or 4 hours.
  2. Use warm sterile salted water to wash your tattoo three or four times a day and dab dry with a clean towel. You may also use Bepanthen cream if desired.
  3. Allow your tattoo to heal in the open air (not direct sun) and do not scratch or pick at scabs.
  4. Do not apply any body products to the tattoo area.
  5. Do not submerse in water for extended periods such as bathing.
  6. Your tattoo should heal within 7–10 days.
  7. If you have any concerns about the healing process, please give the shop a call for further advice.
Piercing Aftercare
The Aftercare of your piercing is very important and you should take great care of keeping it clean.

Zooz Tattooz recommends the following as minimum care:

  1. Piercings are an invasive procedure so expect the area to swell and bleed a little with some slight tenderness.
  2. Keep the area clean with warm sterile salted water, but not too often.
  3. For tongue piercings, maintain good oral hygiene with sterile salted water, especially after eating.
  4. You might notice a slight discharge after a day or two.  This is normal and part of the body’s healing process.  Keep the ring or bar clean as above.
  5. Try not to fiddle with your piercing and do not attempt to remove it until after the healing process.
  6. Healing time is approximately 6-12 weeks but sometimes longer.
  7. If you have any concerns about the healing process, please give the shop a call for further advice.
