After Care

  1. Keep bandage on for 2 hours.
  2. After removing the bandage, with clean hands, wash the tattoo with mild soap and water. NO WASHCLOTH!!
  3. Apply Aquaphor for the first week. Wait for the tattoo to be dry before applying Aquaphor.
  4. After the first week, you can switch to a white, fragrant free lotion, such as Curel or Lubriderm.
  5. The tattoo may scab or flake. DO NOT pick or scratch at it. When it itches, apply a thin layer of lotion.
  6. No swimming, tanning, or taking baths until the tattoo is healed. This usually takes around 2 weeks.
  7. Once the tattoo is healed, make sure to use sunscreen on the healed tattoo every time you are in the sun!
  8. DO NOT listen to friends, family members, or others who think they know better! We are the professionals and we know what we are doing!
