Tattoo aftercare instructions
Now that your tattoo is complete, the important task of protecting your investment is up to you.
Make sure you have a tube of Aquaphor Healing Ointment, lotion, free of fragrance and dye (ex. Lubriderm, Curel, Keri, etc.) and anti-bacterial hand soap, such as Dial. These are available at any grocery or pharmacy.
Remove the bandage after one hour with clean hands. Wash the entire tattoo gently with only your fingertips or hand using warm soapy water (preferably anti-bacterial soap). DO NOT SCRUB OR USE A WASHCLOTH FOR THE FIRST TWO WEEKS. Make sure to wash away any blood or plasma and ointment. Always carefully pat the entire tattoo dry with a clean paper towel, do not rub it. Once it is dry put a very thin layer of Aquaphor over the entire tattoo, you should barely be able to see it. You do not need to bandage it.
Note: Your body will reject some ink the first one-twoweeks, this is normal but keep in mind it might transfer to sheets or clothing.
Apply Aquaphor twice a day for 3-5 days then you can switch to a fragrance and dye free moisturizer. Apply twice a day for the remaining two week healing time. Healing time is from ten days to two weeks but could be longer for slower healers.
Yes, you can shower with a new tattoo, it’s okay to get it wet just do not saturate it. Avoid submerging your tattoo for at least 2-3 weeks in a bath/hot tub or while swimming, this can cause serious damage.
When your tattoo starts to heal, it will itch just like a sunburn. Be careful not to pick or scratch at it; if it itches, gently slap it, if it is peeling put lotion on it. If it is scabbing it is okay this is expected, leave it alone and do not pick at the scabs. Your tattoo is almost healed and now is not the time to ruin it!
After your tattoo is fully healed you will always want to protect it from ultraviolet rays (sun/tanning bed), which can fade and damage a brilliant tattoo very fast. Always protect your tattoos with a minimum 30SPF sunblock. This will protect and keep your tattoo vibrant for many years to come.
