Aftercare for your tattoos:
Please keep your bandage on until you are in a clean safe environment to remove and clean your tattoo!
You will need:
Fragrance free liquid hand soap (Dial Gold, Softsoap, Dr Bronners Unscented)
Ointment (Aquaphore, Hustle Butter, Vitalitree)
Fragrance Free Lotion (Curel, Aveeno, Lubriderm)
#1. Remove all bandaging and throw directly into the garbage.
#2. Wash hands thoroughly.
#3. Wash tattoo- lather tattoo with your fingertips and liquid fragrance free hand soap, repeat if the tattoo feels slimy.
#4. Dry area with a paper towel or let air dry (no bath or hand towels)
#5. Apply a very thin layer of Aquaphor or artist recommend ointment to the tattoo.
Repeat 2-3 times a day for the first 3 days.
Upon day 4, discontinue ointment, and switch to applying fragrance free lotion to the tattoo. Use as needed until the skin returns completely to normal.
Healing takes 2-4 weeks depending on the tattoo and your body.
During the healing process:
NO sun or tanning of any kind.
NO soaking in ANY kind of water.
NO picking at the pealies!
Do NOT re-bandage the tattoo for any reason.
Interested in using a second skin/saniderm type product for healing your tattoo? Please ask your artist and they can advise you in the correct way to use this to their work.
Once your tattoo is healed, always use sunblock to keep your work looking as bright and fresh as it did on day 1!
