Tattoo Aftercare

 

Follow these steps to help your tattoo heal properly and keep it looking good for a long time:

 

- Leave covering on for a minimum of 4 hours

- Once you remove cover, wash well with warm water and antibacterial, unscented soap. Do not re-cover. 

- Apply a very thin layer of ointment (Aquaphor, Lubriderm, unscented lotion).

- Apply ointment 3-4 times a day, after washing with antibacterial, unscented soap.

- No swimming/soaking in bath or hut tub for at least 2 weeks.

- No direct sunlight or tanning for at least 2 weeks. Always use sunscreen for sun exposure.

- Do not scratch or pick at your tattoo!
