Aftercare Basics

Our responsibility is to give you a beautiful tattoo – your responsibility is to keep it that way.

  1. No picking, no scratching, no soaking until it’s healed
  2. It is better to leave a tattoo completely alone than to fuss with it too much
  3. Bandages: keep on minimum 4 hours, maximum 24
  4. Wash with unscented soap and clean hands
  5. Pat dry and leave alone for 24 hours
  6. After 24 hours use unscented lotion like Lubriderm
  7. If the lotion stings, it’s scented. It shouldn’t sting.
  8. Moisturize at least 2 – 3 times a day, more if it’s very dry and/or itchy
  9. No swimming or baths for 2 weeks
  10. Eat fruit, drink water and avoid binge drinking
