Tattooing Aftercare

Tattoo Aftercare

1. Keep bandage on for an hour or less

2. Then clean off any debris with a hot compress or hot water

3. You can use after care but best to do nothing for 24 hours

4. Then use a non fragrant lotion like “Lubriderm” or Curel”!

5. Do not expose a fresh tattoo to sun, soaking in a tub, pool, Jacuzzi or the ocean

6. DO NOT pick at scabs

7. Good hygiene is a must for a good heal and less chance of infection. Sleep on clean sheets and not good ones as it can stain your linens, Avoid dirt, friction, dust, grime, etc.

8. If there is any sign of infection call your artist or seek medical attention!

9. Some redness or itchiness is normal!

Tipping will make your tattoo heal better

Do not let friends touch your tattoo while healing. Be aware of things that can cause MRSA or Staph!

Tattoos heal in three stages; Too bright – Too light – Just right. This can take up to 45 days
