Frequently Asked Questions

Here we hope to ask your primary questions about Princelet Tattoo studio London. If you can't find an answer you're looking for, please don't hesitate to contact us!

How should I get ready for a tattoo session?

Sleep well. A good night sleep is a must before your tattoo appointment. Avoid partying or stying up late. No alcohol or drugs before and during the session. Influence of alcohol causes your blood to thin out which is a big concern for both you and the tattoo artist. Have a good meal prior you appointment. Getting tattooed on an empty stomach may cause you to feel faint, nauseated, or dizzy. Drink water, stay hydrated. Keep your body fluid level in check. Also your skin benefits from drinking lots of water, it will maintain your skin’s elasticity and helps during healing process!

Aftercare - How should I treat my new tattoo?

Gently remove cling film bandage within 4-5 hours after getting tattooed. If artist is using adhesive bandage, keep it on for the first 24 hours. Then gently wash your tattoo with running water or antimicrobial soap and water. Be sure to pat dry instead of wiping it. And don’t forget to wash hands before procedure. Apply a layer of our recomended after care cream 2 to 3 times a day. Wash your tattoo before re-applying cream each time. Repeat the creaming process for 10 days to 2 weeks. Aftercare may vary for different size and style tattoos. Please follow your artist instructions they have provided after the procedure.

What can cause a porblematic healing?

Exposing your fresh tattoo to sun may cause skin to burn much faster than healed skin and that could lead your tattoo to fade and will drastically impact you healing process. Itching, scratching or picking your tattoo. No matter how tempting it is, allow scabs to heal and fall off themselves. If pick off a scab, it may result in tattoo patchy. Itchy scabs can be caused by dryness of your skin (specially during cold, windy seasons) so if necessary apply some tattoo after care cream, it will relieve itching. Aggravation due to clothing. Wear loose clothes during healing period to give a tattoo some space to breathe and heal. Avoid synthetic sprts clothing and stick to cotton fabric while tattoo is healing. Avoid direct contact with any surface. Bear in mind that tattoo is an open wound and when unwrapped, it is prone to dirt and bacteria which may result in cause of infection. Avoid soaking your fresh tattoo in water (bathing,swimming,sauna).Soaking in water could expose it to bacteria and increase risk of infection. Soaking can also lead to skin being dry as natural body oils are removed.Chlorine and salt water are especially hard on fresh tattoos, because both can leach ink from a tattoo, making it less vibrant. Instead use shower if possible or keep your tattoo above water.
