TATTOO AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS
Your tattoo was carefully created by a professional. To ensure a top-quality tattoo, the rest is up to you! Please follow these simple care instructions for the healing process of this tattoo to ensure maximum results and to avoid any error in your part.
ANY DEVIANCE FROM THIS HEALING METHOD MEAN THAT TOUCH UPS ON THE TATTOO ARE AT YOUR EXPENSE AND DUE TO YOUR NEGLIGENCE.
Wear your bandage for 1-2 hours then remove it. Wash tattoo with clean hands, warm water and liquid antibacterial soap. Do not use bar soap directly on the tattoo. You do not need to re-bandage. If Saniderm was placed over your tattoo remove after your artist instructed you to and follow the same washing instructions as above.
WASHING & OINTMENT
You will need to wash your tattoo 3 to 4 times daily. Pat dry with a clean paper towel. Do not rub back and forth.
Apply a thin layer of regular unscented ointment (IE. Richie Bulldog Hustle Butter or Aquaphor) every 4 to 6 hours. You should have no build up of ointment on your tattoo.
Repeat this process morning and night, or after any time your tattoo was exposed to dirt, sweating, or any outside elements.
DO NOT PICK OR SCRATCH! This will cause your tattoo to bleed, will pull ink out of your skin, or cause scarring.
Do's & Don'ts
Wear loose clothing over your tattoo while it heals to avoid any rubbing that may off scabs.
No swimming, soaking, or suntanning for at least 2-3 weeks. This does not mean you can't shower, this means you can't soak.
