Aftercare

  • LEAVE BANDAGE ON OVERNIGHT
  • Remove the bandage in the morning and clean the tattoo with warm water and a mild unscented soap (perfumes may irritate the tattoo).
  • Allow the tattoo to dry for about an hour.
  • With clean hands apply a white, unscented hand lotion (ie. Lubriderm) to the tattoo.
    - As you would hand lotion, rub in until gone.
    - A little goes a long way.
    - Apply 2-3 times a day and continue for 2 weeks.
  • If scabbing occurs:
    - Do not pick or scratch.
    - Allow scab to heal on its own.
    - Tattoo will heal fine if undisturbed.
  • Keep tattoo as clean as possible. However, no need to re bandage as the tattoo needs to breathe still.
  • If the area becomes itchy, tap don't scratch.

Things to Avoid with a Fresh Tattoo

  • Direct sunlight
  • Soaking tattoo in water (ie. long baths)
  • Chlorine (ie. hot tubs, swimming pools)
