When infection from a tattoo /moko occurs, it is usually due to a lack of proper aftercare management.
We can not control what you do after you leave our studio, so please adhere to the aftercare instructions as adivsed.
Remove the wrap/cover after 1 - 2 hours then take a shower.
Start the water temp at a luke warm setting, then after every 15-20secs or so, keep increasing the temperature until it is at a point that is uncomfortable but obviously not burning you.
All the while you are washing the area with soap just using your hand.
When you are done showering, use a CLEAN towel to pat dry the affected area...DON'T WIPE.
Once dry, apply a thin layer of your cream/ointment of choice.
(Bepanthen, Lucas Papaw, A&D)
Apply cream daily up to 4 times a day or when needed. DO NOT let your Moko dry out.
During the healing period, shower normally but only wash the affected area for a max of 30 secs, then get it away from the main water flow, its best to keep your showers as quick as possible.
DO NOT bath or swim! Avoid moisture saturation (bathing/swimming) and avoid direct sunlight.
Keep up this aftercare regime for at least 2 weeks.
Keep an eye on your new ink during the healing period, and if any substantial red-ness occurs, seek medical advice.
