Leave the original bandage in place overnight. The bandage can be left on up to 24 hours. Remove your bandage the morning after you have been tattooed and wash your tattoo thoroughly.
Make sure your hands are clean BEFORE washing your tattoo. Using ONLY your hand, gently lather the tattoo with a mild SCENT-FREE, DYE- FREE soap and rinse thoroughly. Then pat dry with a clean lint-free towel and allow your tattoo to air dry. DO NOT use anything abrasive!
You will want to wash your tattoo daily and avoid exposure to any unsanitary surfaces. After day 2 & Beyond, you can begin applying a SCENT & DYE FREE body lotion to your tattoo, as needed, (1-3 times a day) for the next 3-4 weeks. Avoid petroleum-based products.
Always wash your hands before touching or applying lotion to your tattoo!! When you are not actively caring for your tattoo… avoid touching it or allowing anyone else to touch it!
