TATTOO AFTERCARE

Within the first two hours, rinse your tattoo with cold water and allow it to dry completely

Wait at least 6 hours, then begin the aftercare routine below:

  • Wash your hands

  • Use a gentle, non-scented cleanser and lukewarm water to GENTLY wash your tattoo

  • Rinse with lukewarm water

  • GENTLY pat dry with a paper towel

  • Once your tattoo is completely dry, apply a small amount of ointment (do not apply too much ointment as it will slow the healing)

Repeat morning and night for 7-10 days

  • Do not wear tight clothing over tattoo for one week

  • Do not sweat heavily for one week

  • Do not use scented soaps or lotions for two weeks

  • Do not pick or scratch tattoo

  • Do not allow pets to touch tattoo for one week

  • Do not submerge your tattoo for two weeks (hot tubs, swimming, baths, etc.)

  • Do not use a tanning bed or allow direct sunlight on your tattoo for at least 30 days (In fact, the less sun exposure to your tattoo over your lifetime, the better)
