Directions of Use:

  1. After the tattoo is completed, most tattoo artists will wrap over the fresh tattoo with cling film or a Tattoo Film. Depending on your artist’s instructions, we recommend removing the Tattoo Film when you get home after your session with warm (not hot) water then wash away the blood and excess ink with Dr Pickles Tattoo Foam Wash.
  2. Pat the tattoo dry with a clean towel or paper towel and let it air until the skin is starting to feel tight and dry. It is important to let the tattoo breathe like this any time it gets wet before it goes into the peeling stage.
  3. If necessary, cut the Tattoo Film to suit the size of your tattoo, ensure the orange strip is in the middle of your cut portion. We suggest leaving a minimum of 1 cm gap between the edge of the tattoo and the Tattoo Film.
  4. Before touching your fresh tattoo or handling the Tattoo Film sanitise your hands with Dr Pickles Tattoo Foam Wash.
  5. Apply the Tattoo Film to your tattoo leaving a minimum of a 1 cm gap between the edge of the tattoo and the Tattoo Film. This will help the tattoo adhere to your skin.
  6. When removing the film, wash your fresh tattoo with warm water and Dr Pickles Tattoo Foam Wash. Gently remove any excess ink, fluids and blood under the running water. 
  7. Pat dry and leave to air before applying Tattoo Balm, we only recommend using Tattoo Film for the first 48 hours of the healing process then moving onto the Wash and Heal tattoo care method.
  8. Please note, as Dr Pickles Pickle Wrap is a very thin adhesive, we do not recommend the wrap to be left on a tattoo over two consecutive days.
  9. If reapplying Dr Pickles Pickle Wrap, place a very small amount of balm on the tattoo, then reapply the Pickle Wrap with sanitised hands.
