Usually yes, if it is properly healed. It is best to pop into the studio or make an appointment for a consultation.

Please note the following aftercare instructions:

Leave the dressing on for a minimum of 2 hours or as long as directed by your tattoo artist.
Then in a clean environment, remove the dressing and wash the tattoo well with a neutral/antibacterial soap and water. Gently pat the area dry with a clean towel.

Allow to air dry for approximately 1 hour before applying any cream. Always wash your hands before
applying cream or touching the new tattoo. Sparingly apply cream over the whole tattoo.

Do not leave a thick film on the surface. Apply cream 2 to 3 times a day. Wear clean clothes and
avoid tight fitting clothes as they may irritate the fresh tattoo. As it heals it will scab up/flake
off which is 100% normal, do not pick or scratch it.

Keep the tattoo out of direct sunlight and apart from showers the tattoo should not be getting wet - no pools/spa/beach/baths etc until fully healed.

It will take anywhere from 5-14 days to heal your new tattoo. Once healed we recommend using SPF30+ sunscreen to aid in preventing ageing and fading.

If you have any questions or concerns please don't be afraid to contact the studio.
