Tattoo After Care

Taking good care of your tattoo will determine how it heals. Here are the steps to ensure that your new tattoo will remain beautiful forever.

  • Step 1

    Remove bandage 1-5 hours after the session was finished.

  • Step 2

    Wash your hands, and with a disposable material and Dial soap, wash tattoo in a lathering motion until all blood and plasma has been removed.

  • Step 3

    Rinse your tattoo with cold water.

  • Step 4

    Pat dry with a clean paper towel or cloth, and then let air dry for 5-10 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Apply only LUBRIDERM or CUREL fragrance free lotion, or Aquaphor/Eucerin (apply small amounts) to the tattoo 3-4 times a day for the next two weeks until fully healed.

  • Step 6

    Absolutely NO petroleum based products such as Vaseline, Neosporin A&D Ointment or Bactrin, or aftermarket products such as "tattoo goo", no matter what you've heard, or have done before.

  • Step 7

    NEVER pick at scabs or dry skin while healing. Let them fall off naturally, on their own.
