TATTOO AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS

  •  Always wash your hands before touching your tattoo!

  • When you get home: Remove bandage within 2-3 hours after getting your tattoo. Do not re-bandage.

  • Wash your tattoo with an anti-bacterial liquid soap. Be gentle, do not use a washcloth or anything that will exfoliate your tattoo. Only use your hands.

  • Gently pat your tattoo dry with a clean cloth or paper towel. Do not rub, or use a fabric with a rough surface.

  • The first 2 weeks: Rub a small amount of Bepanthen or Tattoo Aftercare Balm – whatever you know you’re not allergic to. Always use clean hands and do not place your fingers back into the ointment after touching your tattoo. Make sure to rub the ointment in so that it is not shiny, or greasy– you want the thinnest amount possible. 

  • Do not use any cloth bandages or pads, as the fibers of this material can adhere to your open tattoo and hinder the healing process.

  • Wear clean, soft clothing over your tattoo for the first 2 weeks– nothing abrasive or irritating. 

  • After day 4: On the 3rd or 4th day your tattoo will begin to peel. This is normal! Do not pick at the skin. 

  • After 2 weeks use any unscented cream, free of dyes or parfumes as A&D, E45 or Cocobutter. You can use this as long as you want without damaging your tattoo.
