- Leave the bandage on for a minimum of 2 hours. You will be excited to show your tattoo to others, but please refrain from doing so until the minimum of 2 hours has passed. Open flesh is a breeding ground for bacteria and infection.
- After you remove the bandage, wash the tattoo with lukewarm water, and mild, liquid antibacterial, or antimicrobial soap. Dial is to harsh, try using a generic antibacterial soap. Gently wash away blood, plasma, and ointment to clean the area.
- Do not use a wash cloth on the tattoo area for cleaning. Use your clean hands only. You can use a clean, dry cloth, or paper towel, to pat dry the tattoo. Do not rub the tattoo with the dry cloth, or paper towel.
- Follow with a very light ointment on the tattoo. A & D vitamin enriched ointment, Bacitracin, or similar antibacterial ointment is acceptable. Do not use Neosporin.
- After 2 days, you can continue to use the ointment, or you can use Eucerin lotion on the tattoo to keep the skin soft.
- Do not submerge your tattoo in water while bathing. Try to avoid the area with soap or shampoo while showering. Do not swim in any type of water for at least 2 weeks.
- A little peeling, or scabbing is normal. Apply a warm moist compress to the tattoo area for 5 minutes, 2 - 3 times a day to soften them and they will eventually come off on their own. Do not put any lotion or ointment on a softened scab. Your tattoo will start to itch as it heals. Do not pick, or scratch at them. Pat them if they itch. Put lotion, or ointment on them if they are peeling. If it is scabbing, leave it alone.
- Protect your tattoo when exposed to the sun with a minimum 30SPF sunblock.
