What to expect:

  • Tattoos act like sunburns during the healing process.

  • They will usually begin to peel in 3 days to a week depending on the tattoo.

  • The area will be peeling for about 2-3 weeks. This is completely natural. It can get quite annoying.  You can deal with this with gentle slaps but don't go too crazy. If you can refrain from doing this, that will always be the better option.
