Remove bandage within a couple hours, and wash with warm water and soap. Pat dry with clean paper towel and apply a thin film of aftercare ointment.
Wash tattoo twice daily while healing and use aftercare ointment as needed to prevent dryness. It is fine to wash in the shower but do not soak or submerge.
Do not pick or scratch any scabbing, allow it to come off on its own. Scabbing usually flakes off in 7-10 days. Keep clean and continue to use aftercare ointment until healed. Wear clean, loose clothing to protect tattoo while healing.
DO NOT expose healing tattoo to sun, swimming, hot tubs, unclean conditions, irritating clothing, or anything that may hinder healing.
Once your tattoo is healed, use high SPF sunblock when exposed to sun.
If any sign of infection occurs, contact your health care provider immediately.
