Tattoo Aftercare

 

HYGIENE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF HEALING YOUR TATTOO. PLEASE FOLLOW THESE STEPS TO ENSURE THAT YOUR TATTOO HEALS PROPERLY.

 

  1. Remove bandage after one to two hours.  For larger piece you may leave it on longer or even overnight.

  2. Wash your hands, then your tattoo gently three to four times a day with warm water and DIAL ANTIBACTERIAL LIQUID GOLD SOAP.  Use only your clean hands, not washcloths or any other harsh fabrics. Let the tattoo air dry or pat dry with clean paper towel.

  3. After the first 24-36 hours, start applying a thin coat of AQUAPHOR after washing and drying.

  4. Once your tattoo starts to flake and peel, typically around day 4-6, you may start to use a FRAGRANCE FREE WHITE LOTION in place of the AQUAPHOR to comfort the dry skin.

 

DO NOT PICK OR SCRATCH YOUR TATTOO.

DO NOT SWIM OR SOAK YOUR TATTOO FOR AT LEAST 10 DAYS.

KEEP IT CLEAN AND OUT OF DIRECT SUNLIGHT WHILE HEALING.

 

POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS

If you are taking proper care of your new tattoo and it appears to be having any type of adverse or unusual reaction please stop by and let us take a look or consult your physician.  Most new tattoos cause some discomfort, similar to a sunburn, and/or soreness for a few days.  Generally a fresh tattoo will scab, itch, and peel.  It is crucial that you do not pick or scratch it.  Keeping it clean and gently applying lotion will offer some relief.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call us or stop by.
