Tattoo After Care
How To Take Care of Your New Tattoo
We recommend wearing your bandage overnight to help keep the area clean. Once the bandage is removed wash the tattooed area lightly with liquid soap (we recommend castille soap) and keep your new tattoo as exposed as possible.
It is important to keep the area clean and allow it to breath. If the newly tattooed area must be clothed, refrain from wearing heavy fabrics or tight fitting clothing. Do not soak or submerge your new tattoo until it is completely healed.
When your tattoo begins to itch and dry out ( when the skin around your tattoo begins to tighten) you may begin to regularly apply non-scented, hypo allergenic, white lotion. Avoid petroleum products and overly oily lotions.
DO NOT SCRATCH OR PICK AT YOUR TATTOO.
Within a few weeks your tattoo should be completely healed. To keep the lines and colors bright apply sunblock when needed.
