Steps for Healthy Healing

  1. Remove Bandage after 2-3 hours and wash the tattoo with warm soapy water using an unscented antibacterial soap and make sure your hands are clean.
  2. Let air dry and apply a thin layer of aquaphor, no antibiotic ointments like Neosporin.
  3. Apply product 1-2 times daily for the first 3 days, washing in between application. Apply only a THIN layer. Aquaphor is not more effective the more you use.
  4. Switch to an unscented and dye free lotion after three days.
  5. Your tattoo will begin to peel and itch after a few days, this is normal. Do not pick or scratch.
  6. DO NOT GO SWIMMING OR TANNING FOR 3 WEEKS.
  7. Keep your tattoo clean and don't keep it covered allowing air to circulate.
  8. DON'T LISTEN TO ANYONE OTHER THAN YOUR ARTIST ABOUT AFTER CARE.
