Important Tips

ALWAYS wash hands before touching or washing your new tattoo. Take short showers and avoid getting shampoo or bodywash on healing tattoo.

Thinks to Avoid

Swimming, sun exposure, tanning, dirty jobs, working out, baths, wearing tight clothing, etc. until your tattoo is completely healed.

First Day

Remove bandage after a few hours or when you get home. Wash tattoo with soap and luke-warm water (use your fingers only, avoid rags or abrasive material!) After rinsing, pat dry with clean paper towel. Allow the tattoo to air-dry for about 10 minutes before applying a very thin layer of ointment Be sure to sleep on clean sheets and blankets and avoid sleeping directly on new tattoo if possible.

Days 2 & 3

Wash tattoo 2-3 times per day. (Morning, Evening, and before bed) After washing, pat dry with clean paper towel.
