Keep bandage on for 2-4 hours. Please, do not remove prior to 2 hours.
Wash your hands thoroughly before removing the bandage.
Remove bandage delicately.
Wash and cleanse the tattoo, as well as the surrounding area with mildly war to hot water and a liquid anti-bacterial gentle cleanser or soft soap from a pump bottle. Use only your fingertips in a circular motion to remove all blood, ink, and remaining traces of liquids and ointments. DO NOT USE: wash cloths, paper towels, luffas or anything abrasive.
After removing the remainder of the soap or cleanser pat gently with a clean towel and let area air dry for 5-10 minutes before applying any aftercare products.
We understand there are many products in the market for "healing" a tattoo. Whether it be Aquaphor, Cetaphil, or other brands of healing ointments or lotions. It is important to not over saturate the area with any of the products. Apply a little product to your index finger and disperse a small bead size of around 3-5mm. Then with another finger using a circular motion move from one bead to the next until all lotions or ointments have been caressed into a thin layer and absorbed into the skin.
Your tattoo is a wound in its basic definition. Keep your tattoo clean and repeat the steps until the tattoo is healed.
Bandage your tattoo again.
Soak or submerge your tattoo in pools, rivers, hot tubs. Saunas are not recommended as well.
Avoid wearing tight clothes over the tattooed area.
Stay out of direct sunlight and/or tanning for minimal of two weeks. (You're practically a gremlin, be a gremlin!)
