After Care

Tattoo Aftercare Instructions

  • Leave bandage on for 4-12 hours
  • Remove and wash well with soap and water
  • Apply an unscented lotion such as Aveeno or Lubriderm
  • Wash and moisturize at least 3-4 times a day for first 2 days
  • From day 3 on, just moisturize, not wash, 3-4 times a day
  • Showering is fine, no baths, no soaking in water for one week
  • In approximately 5-9 days you will notice a flaking, like a sunburn, this is a normal part of the healing process
  • Once the flaking has subsided your tattoo is healed and you can discontinue moisturizing
  • Avoid direct sunlight on your tattoo for 2 weeks, and if necessary apply sunscreen over tattoo for 3 weeks after that to insure tattoo is completely healed through before tanning
