Aftercare

If bandaged, leave bandage on until you arrive home.

 

Clean with a mild, preferably fragrance free soap.

 

Apply a thin (just enough to keep it shiny) layer of Aquaphor or A+D ointment to the tattoo.

 

Continue applying ointment to tattoo roughly 3 times daily, cleaning in between.

 

The tattoo will likely reach a peeling phase. Continue application of ointment and under no circumstances should you pick at the loose skin.

 

Once the tattoo is done peeling, you can switch to a fragrance free lotion or continue using the ointment until fully healed.

 

 

*Do not touch fresh tattoo with dirty hands

*Do not fully submerge tattoo in water for more than a few seconds

* No swimming until the tattoo is fully healed

*If scabbing occurs, do not pick at the scab or any loose skin

 

Don't forget that tips to your artist are always welcomed and appreciated.
