Tattoo Aftercare

Initial Aftercare

  • Always thoroughly wash your hands with warm water and soap before touching your tattoo.
  • After 2 hours remove the bandage.
  • Do not re-bandage.
  • Clean thoroughly with warm water and soap.
  • Let the tattoo air dry, then apply a thin layer of lotion or ointment once a day only.
  • Use a plain unscented lotion/ointment:  Cetaphil, Curel, Lubriderm or A&D ointment.

Daily Aftercare

  • In the shower, lightly wash the tattoo and let air dry.
  • Apply a very thin layer of lotion/ointment to tattoo once daily. Less is more.
  • Keep your tattoo clean. Always wash your hands thoroughly before you touch your tattoo.
  • Don’t pick or scratch the tattoo while it is healing. Flaking of the skin is normal. Leave it be.
  • Avoid excess rubbing on clothing. Avoid sunlight exposure, tanning, and swimming for 2 weeks.
