Your Tattoo Aftercare

For your tattoo to properly heal, please, follow these guidelines:

  • Remove bandage in 4 hours
  • With clean hands, gently wash tattoo with warm water and mild soap (such as Ivory or Dove)
  • Allow to air dry or pat dry with a clean paper towel
  • Wash tattoo 3-4 times a day for the first 3 days; remember that it is an open wound, so do your best to keep it as clean as possible
  • When scabbing begins to form generally within 2 days, begin applying a thin layer of unscented Lubriderm, 2 or 3 times daily; always be sure to wash your hands and tattoo before application
  • Do not pick or scratch at your tattoo! This could result in color loss, scarring or infection
  • Avoid direct sunlight on new tattoo
  • Avoid swimming and soaking for a few weeks (this also means no baths – showers only)
  • If you notice any signs of infection such as redness, pain, or pus, please contact your doctor
  • The healing process is different for everyone – on average it takes around 2 weeks. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact your artist or the studio – we are here to help
