Aftercare of Your Tattoo

The aftercare of your tattoo is extremely important in the preservation of your tattoo.  The instructions listed below have been approved by physicians and will ensure proper healing. 

1. After 3 hours, remove the bandage and gently wash with warm water and mild soap.    DO NOT RE-BANDAGE.  Always keep tattoo clean during entire healing process.


2.Apply a thin film of fragrance free hand lotion 3 times a day for the next 2 weeks.


3.Stay out of sunlight and tanning booths until tattoo is healed, at least 2 weeks.


4.Do not soak tattoo in tub, sauna, Jacuzzi or go swimming while your new tattoo is healing.   Showers are fine.

5.Do not rub or pick the treated area while it is healing.   Loss of color and/or infection could occur.    


6.Always wash hands before any contact with tattoo.


7.    Extreme sun and exposure over the years can and will fade your tattoo.  This can be minimized by using a strong sunscreen, at least SP25.


8.Your tattoo should heal within 2 weeks.  Consult a physician if any signs or symptoms develop such as the following:  redness at site, green/yellow discharge (foul smelling) and/or fever.
