Tattoo Aftercare Instructions | Tattoo Aftercare Products | Bathurst


Tattoo aftercare is an essential part of the tattoo process. Looking after your new piece of art will give it the best chance of lasting and for the skin to heal. There are several methods that are offered  throughout the industry with small variations but the most important thing to do with a fresh tattoo is to listen to your artists aftercare advice and use the products recommended.

Your tattooist welcomes your questions and is only to happy to provide you with all the information you need. Here at Unify Private Studio we not only want to give you the best experience possible, we also want to help you throughout the entire process. 

We stock a range of quality aftercare products to help you take care of your new body art. 


There are many aftercare protocols and products on the market and each artist will have their own personal preference they recommend to clients. 

Your tattooist will let you know what some "normal" side effects of tattooing are and the side effects that may need some extra attention. 

Everyone is slightly different in what may work for them and what products work best on their skin.

This is the process we recommend to our clients to ensure the best healed results:

New Tattoos

  • Don't pick or scratch the tattoo while it is still healing

  • Avoid prolonged sun exposure in the area

  • Let the skin breathe

  • Don't touch the unhealed tattoo with dirty hands

  • Use a gentle mild antibacterial soap and pat the tattoo dry 

  • Use the recommended aftercare product as directed by your tattooist


A tattoo can take anywhere from 7-14 days to look healed on the surface but underneath the tissue takes up to a month to fully heal and your skin to look normal again.

Healing time will depend on size, style, placement, type of tattoo, your age and your body so listen to your body and if it takes a bit longer continue to follow the aftercare advice. 

If you have any questions please contact your tattooist for personal protocols they follow not only for their clients but for themselves as well. 


At Unify Private Studio we understand you will have questions about the process of tattooing and what your about to commit too. Here you can find a few of the more frequently asked questions, never hesitate to ask any additional questions during the first stages of consultation, your chosen artist will be more than happy to explain the entire process to you in detail.


If you ever have doubts about the hygiene of your tattoo shop. Forgot it. It is absolutely necessary that a sterilized environment is presented for you and here at Unify we strive to be the best and maintain a pristine workplace for not only our client but for ourselves. Grants we aren't performing open surgery but there is still a high standard to be maintain within the industry that we strife to exceed.


Anything in life worth doing involves some pain or discomfort, whether its physical or mental. This can include training, going to the gym, learning a language, even doing daily tasks so some. The pain of tattoo is mild, short lasting and ceases as soon as the tattoo is complete. There is only discomfort whilst the ink is actually being out into th skin. This is not a constant process, there and any starting and stopping points and it doesn't take long for your body to work out what's hopping and you grow used to it. Ofcourse, some spots hurt a touch more but at the end of the day, you get some really cool art on you to show off!


You may of heard that numbing cream can help if your abit sensitive to the potential pain and want to know if you can use it? This answer varies between all artists. Some prefer not to use it and some find it fine, it’s always best to ask this question to individuals as there is no definite answer.
Shared knowledge though is the fact there are some questionable ‘ numbing creams’ out there.
Occasionally you’ll find an artist that worries about the effect of it and the effect it has on the skin while being tattooed. We at Unify have differing opinions as individuals ourselves so it is best to ask your artist before the session.


Generally, we at Unify try to base our quotes by the hour at our Individual rates. We have a shop minimum of $130 for our apprentices and the maximum rate again is varied at day rates which currently span from $800 to $1100. You can always plan a quote with your chosen artist and work toward a later day if it’s slightly out of budget for the moment. Saving for cool art is worth it and really give you something to look forward to! Have the funds now and ready to go? We try our absolute best to get you as fast as possible with schedules so swing an enquiry through!
