The Adorn guide to your tattoo:

 

 

Our ethos at Adorn is to ensure that you get the most from your experience with us.

 

Before you get tattooed, we conduct a full consultation to discuss your requirements, lifestyle, and answer any questions you may have about before, during and after the procedure. As part of our responsibility to you, we want you to be well informed and make the best decisions regarding your body and how you adorn it. 

 

Our tattooists are trained to the highest standards in sterilisation, procedures, aftercare and design.

 

Professional experience and a true passion for our art form ensure you get a personal, caring and comprehensive experience every time you visit us.

 

We ask that you continue our work and look after your tattoo to the best of your ability!

 

General rules...

  • Clean your hands before and after touching your new tattoo

  • Don't pick and scratch the tattoo

  • No swimming, bathing or soaking the tattoo for at least 3 weeks

  • Avoid harsh or perfumed products whilst the tattoo is fresh

  • Keep your tattoo protected from harmful UV rays - when the tattoo is fresh keep the tattoo covered under clothing, once it has healed for long term care use high factor suncream to avoid fading

  • Wear loose clothing around the fresh tattoo and avoid anything that feels irritating (lace, wool etc)

  • Look after your general health, plenty of sleep and healthy eating will speed up your tattoo healing time
