Aftercare Instructions

Step 1. Take your bandage off after 1 hour, no more than 2.  

Step 2. Wash with unscented antibacterial soap and warm water. The first time you wash your new tattoo, you will need to use as hot of water as you can stand (do not scold yourself). 

Step 3. Rinse with cool water and pat dry with a clean paper towel.  

The first time you wash, let your tattoo air dry for 2-3 hours and then re wash the tattoo following steps 1-3 again. 

Any other time you wash your tattoo let it air dry for 20 minutes before applying Aquaphor or lotion. 

If you are in the process of getting a tattoo that will take multiple sessions to complete, please do not sun this area for the duration of the project.
