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.
