• Stay away from activities such as heavy cleaning or yard work where there may be airborne debris
• Drinking and smoking can also delay the healing process
• Convertibles, motorcycles, skateboards, rollerblading, skydiving etc... All of these are super fun, but open air activities must be avoided

What to expect
The natural healing and exfoliation cycle of the skin is very different for everyone. During the next 4- 6 weeks here is what you can expect:
When you leave & a few days post procedure, the pigment may darken or appear thicker. Do not let this alarm you. The pigment will fade ( most cases 30 -50%)This is also why color selection is so important. After the darkening cycle anywhere during the next 1-3 weeks, the skin begins to scab, flake and peel. It is very important that you do no touch it during this phase. Also during this phase the pigment fades the most, sometimes even appearing to have disappeared. This is the new skin forming over it. After 4-6 weeks you are fully healed. At this time we are able to see how the skin has retained the ink and advise touchup where needed. Just remember to KEEP THEM DRY & FREE OF ANY MOISTURE. Please remember results are different for everyone! There is no guarantee to how your skin will hold the ink. This is why we also offer $75 touchups for an entire year!
