Take your bandage off in two hours. Clean your tattoo with warm water and liquid soap. Do not use a wash cloth or loofa pad, just soap and your fingertips. In the shower make sure you wash your tattoo last and be sure to rinse all soap off.

2

Pat the tattoo with a clean, dry towel, then let air dry for 10-15 minutes.

With clean hands, apply a thin/even amount of Aquaphor. Apply after each wash and once or twice inbetween washes. Always apply ointment with clean hands.

Repeat steps 1-3 once in the morning and once at night for the first 3-4 days.

After 3-4 days of using Aquaphor, the tattoo will start to peel and flake (DO NOT PICK OR SCRATCH THE TATTOO). Switch to a fragance free body lotion (Aveeno, Lubriderm, Curel, etc.). Continue to moisturiz for two more weeks.

6

Keep out of direct sunlight for at least two weeks (including tanning beds). After the tattoo is healed, use sunblock to protect your artwork.

Do not submerge the tattoo into water for at least two weeks (swimming, bathtubs, jacuzzi's, etc.)

8

DO NOT PICK OR SCRATCH THE TATTOO! Always use spf 30 or higher after the tattoo is healed.


Once your tattoo has healed, please stop back for a check up so we can evaluate. If a touch up is needed, we can schedule an appointment accordingly.
