Taking Care Of your Tattoo
We recommend following these steps for optimal healing efficiency,
- Go home remove covering, Wash with lukewarm water & soft soap (not bar) pat dry, Apply thin amount of Aquaphor be sure “NOT” to leave any excess on the surface of the skin.
- The following day on AVOID getting the tattoo “wet “ DO NOT WASH, (washing or soaking the tattoo will result in heavy scabbing and premature removal of the scab resulting in discoloration and missing ink.), You will need at least 2 weeks away from tubs, pools, hot tubs, long hot showers, tanning beds, etc.
- For the first week or 2, apply Aquaphor 3-4 times daily, Once the tattoo has completed the light flaky/Dry phase it's likely fully healed. Be sure NOT to leave excess moisturizer on the tattoo as this will not help keep it moisturized and will in fact make the scabbing worse and prolong the healing.
- Once fully healed you can continue moisturizing to maintain that fresh tattoo look and feel free to resume life as usual.
