Tattoo Aftercare

How we recommend taking care of your new tattoo. Coming soon.

  1. After 2-3 hours, remove the bandage gently and wash with warm water and mild hand soap. Pat tattoo dry with a clean paper towel, or allow to air dry. Do not rub.
  2. Wash the tattoo 3 to 4 times a day as listed above and then apply a thin layer of Aquaphor, or A&D Ointment, for the next 3 days. After 3 days, use an unscented hand lotion like Lubriderm or Curel, 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, keep them short.
  5. DO NOT RUB or PICK the treated area while it is healing. Loss of 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. Do not listen to your friends about the healing process of tattoos! Should you have any problems or questions call us at (678)423-0503.
