AFTERCARE OF YOUR TATTOO

  1. After 3 hours, remove the bandage gently and wash with warm water and mild soap. DO NOT RE-BANDAGE.
  2. Apply a thin film of A&D Ointment, Aquaphor, or the like 3-5 times a day for the next 3 days. After 3 days, use an unscented hand lotion like Dermassage or Noxzema until skin returns to its pre-tattoo condition.
  3. Stay out of sunlight and tanning booths until tattoo is healed, at least 7-10 days.
  4. Do not soak tattoo in tub, sauna, Jacuzzi or go swimming while your new tattoo is healing. Showers are fine.
  5. Do not rub or pick the treated area while it is healing. Loss or color and/or infection could occur.
  6. Extreme sun and exposure over the years can and will fade your tattoo. This can be minimized by using a strong sunscreen, at least SP25.
  7. Your tattoo should heal in 2-3 weeks. Consult a physician if any signs or symptoms develop such as the following: redness at site, green/yellow discharge (foul smelling) and/or fever.
