TATTOO AFTERCARE

  • After 2 to 3 hours, remove the bandage gently and wash with warm water and fragrance free antibacterial soap.Wash your hands then use your hand to wash your new tattoo. DO NOT USE A WASHCLOTH OR REBANDAGE

 

  • Apply a thin film of Aquaphor, Aquatat, or the similar product. DO NOT USE NEOSPORIN. Neosporin is an awesome product however, is it causes healing to occur too quickly which is not good for your new tattoo. It needs to heal slower to properly heal.

 

  • Repeat steps 1 + 2  3 times a day for 3-4 days or until you begin to peel.

 

  • Once you begin peeling (usually around day 3 or 4) use a fragrance free hand lotion like H2 Oceans' Ocean Care Cream, Lubriderm, or Eucerin until skin returns to its pre-tattoo condition.

 

  • Keep your new tattoo out of sunlight and tanning booths until tattoo is healed, at least 7-10 days.

 

  • Do not soak your new tattoo in tub, sauna, Jacuzzi, or go swimming while your new tattoo is healing.  Showers are fine.

 

  • Do not rub, scratch or pick at the treated area while your new tattoo is healing.Loss of color and/or infection could occur.

 

  • Your tattoo should heal in 2 weeks.

 

  • Extreme sun and exposure over the years can and will fade your tattoo. This can be minimized by using a strong sunscreen, at least SPF50 or higher.
