TATTOO

AFTERCARE

Every artist and tattoo is different, so please make sure to listen to your artist carefully!

 

Here are our generic instructions:

  1. Leave your bandage on for 3-4 hours

  2. After removing the bandage wash your tattoo thoroughly with warm water and mild soap

  3. Gently pat the tattoo and surrounding area dry with a clean towel

  4. Keep your new tattoo out of the sun and water as much as possible until the scabs have fallen off on their own (yes - you can shower, but do not submerge your tattoo aka- no baths, hot tubs, or swimming!)

  5. Moisturize your tattoo with a white unscented moisturizer when it is dry and itchy only

    • Wipe off any excess moisturizer

  6. Do not pick or scratch your scabs!!! It will interrupt the healing process and impact the longevity of your tattoo...it is very obvious to us if you do this :(

 

If you have any questions about tattoo aftercare please do not hesitate to contact us!

If none of this works you can always try yelling at your tattoo...but seriously follow your artists instructions.
