  1. DO NOT pick, itch, or rub a new tattoo.

  2. Follow One of the Two recommended aftercare methods below.


Artificial Skin / Second Skin

Allow skin to stay on your new tattoo for 5-14 days.  The skin will itch and peel off on its own… leaving the client with a bright new tattoo.


Tattoo aftercare is the Client/Customer's responsibility!  

Shades of Pain Tattoo or any of its employees are not responsible or liable in any way once the client leaves the shop.  


Please read aftercare instructions and contact your artist with any questions.
