Remove bandage after 2 hours (do not rebandage)
- Wash tattoo with your hand (make sure hand is clean) using
warm, soapy water. Rinse with cold water. Don't over soak your
tattoo. Keep out of the direct spray of the shower. Pat dry, DO
NOT rub with towel.
For 3 to 5 days or until tattoo is healed, apply Vitamin A&D
Ointment or Bacitracin or Zinc Oxide Ointment 3 to 4 times daily
after washing tattoo. Keep tattoo moist. If allergic to these
ointments, use a water based lotion such as Curel.
Tattoo will flake. DO NOT pick at the flakes or you may pull the
color out. Try not to let clothing rub on your tattoo while it is
NO swimming or suntanning until healed. Apply a high SPF
sunblock to tattoo after healed to prevent fading.
