Aftercare Instructions

  • Always wash your hands prior to touching your tattoo. Dirty hands can spread infection.
  • 3 to 6 hours after receiving your tattoo, remove the bandage and gently wash the tattoo with soap and water. This will remove ointment, excess color and white blood cells.
  • Dry your tattoo by blotting it with a dry, clean, lint-free paper towel. Do not rub your tattoo.
  • Use ointment for the next 3 days, approximately 3 times a day. Gently apply enough ointment to keep the tattoo from getting dry. Apply a thin film, but do not drown the tattoo in ointment or lotion. Soggy is not good. Listen to your body.
  • After performing the above care for three days, switch to using a fragrance/dye-free lotion.
  • Keep your tattoo out of direct sunlight and away from tanning booths for 10 to 14 days. Use sunscreen of at least SPF 30 after it has healed.
  • Your tattoo may scab, flake. or peel. This is natural. Do not pick at the scab. This may remove ink and damage your tattoo. Sometimes the skin flakes that come off are the same color as your tattoo. This does not mean your tattoo is “falling out.” If you have any questions please call your artist.
  • If you think you are allergic to the tattoo or the aftercare products, or believe that you have an infection, please contact your doctor. Discontinue use of the aftercare product if you think you are having a reaction to it.
