Aftercare

One of the most important things about getting a tattoo is making sure it is going to keep looking good for a long time to come. Let’s face it, you are going to have this forever so let’s make sure it heals correctly shall we?

  • Remove bandage after 2 hours

  • Wash 2 to 3 times daily with an antibacterial soap (unscented)

  • Let dry and apply a thin layer of Aquaphor for 2 days (too much can clog pores and cause infection so really be sparse)

  • For remainder of healing process use an unscented lotion when tattoo feels dry

  • IMPORTANT: no soaking, picking, sun tanning, or use of pool/hot tub during healing time (about two weeks)

  • If you are going to continue a workout routine while healing a tattoo please be mindful of how dirty gym equipment is, always clean your tattoo before and after your workout

  • Always put sunscreen on your tattoos when in the sun to help keep them in great condition (this is after they have healed of course)
