Steps to Take

Tattoo aftercare:

  1. Leave your tattoo wrapped for up to 2 hours. 
  2. Wash your hands before touching your new tattoo.
  3. Wash your tattoo with antibacterial soap.
  4. Air dry or pat dry with a paper towel. 
  5. Apply Aquaphor after washing or whenever your tattoo feels dry.
  6. Repeat the washing process for 3 - 5 days.
  7. DO NOT scratch or pick at your tattoo.
  8. NO tanning beds and NO prolonged sun exposure!
  9. Normal showering is okay. 


SKIN ARMOR AFTERCARE:


  1. Keep adhesive bandage on your tattoo for 3 - 4 days. 
  2. It is normal for the bandage to bubble and collect murky fluid.
  3. After 3 - 4 days, remove the bandage using warm water.
  4. After the bandage has been removed, wash your tattoo with an antibacterial soap.
  5. Continue normal aftercare using an unscented lotion or a thin layer of Aquaphor.
  6. If the bandage starts to leak, remove it and continue with the normal aftercare.


PRO TIPS FOR AFTER YOUR TATTOO HAS HEALED:


  1. Use lotion regularly to keep your tattoo looking fresh. 
  2. Use sunscreen with at least an SPF of 20 during prolonged sun exposure to keep tattoos from fading.
