AFTER CARE: HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR TATTOO

*The life of your tattoo is dependent upon the care it receives in the next 7 - 14 days.

Keep your tattoo bandaged for only an hour or so.  Remove bandage and wash with unscented soap and warm water.  Make sure your hands are washed before you touch the tattoo.  DO NOT USE scents, detergents or dyes.  Lightly pat dry your tattoo with paper towel only, and apply a very thin layer of Aquaphor ointment.

 

You will need to do the above healing process 2 times a day for 3 days.  Be careful not to put too much ointment over your tattoo and remove any excess, your skin needs to breathe!  Use skin therapy lotion (Eucerin, Lubriderm, ect.) after the 3 days

DO NOT: Pick, scratch, itch or rebandage!

DO NOT: Submerge your tattoo!  Stay out of pools, hot tubs, lakes, oceans, ect....

DO NOT: Go tanning for 14 days.
