AFTER CARE FOR YOUR NEW TATTOO

YOU DID IT! CONGRATS! NOW, IT’S TIME TO ENSURE THAT YOUR TATTOO HEALS PROPERLY:

PLEASE FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR TWO WEEKS.

1.    REMOVE BANDAGE AFTER 2-4 HOURS. IF IT IS LATE IN THE EVENING, THE BANDAGE CAN BE LEFT ON OVERNIGHT AND REMOVED IMMEDIATELY IN THE MORNING.

2.    GENTLY WASH YOUR NEW TATTOO WITH WARM WATER AND LIQUID NON-SCENTED, ANTIBACTERIAL SOAP. THEN, RINSE WITH COOL WATER.

3.    PAT DRY WITH A CLEAN PAPER TOWEL AND ALLOW 30-45 MINUTES BEFORE PUTTING ANY APPROVED AFTERCARE OINTMENT ON THE TATTOO.

HOW TO APPLY AFTERCARE

  • ONLY USE APPROVED AFTERCARE.

  • WASH YOUR HANDS BEFORE ALL APPLICATIONS OF THE APPROVED OINTMENT.

  • APPLY A SMALL AMOUNT OF AFTERCARE OINTMENT 2 TO 3 TIMES THROUGHOUT THE DAY.

  • DO NOT OVER APPLY AFTERCARE. LESS IS MORE.

WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR NEW TATTOO

IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CARE FOR YOUR NEW TATTOO.

  • YOUR NEW TATTOO WILL BEGIN TO ITCH AS IT HEALS. DO NOT PICK, SCRATCH, OR RUB YOUR NEW TATTOO! INSTEAD, USE YOUR APPROVED AFTERCARE TO RELIEVE ITCHING.

  • DO NOT SUBMERGE YOUR NEW TATTOO UNDER WATER. NO BATHS OR SWIMMING FOR AT LEAST 10 DAYS. SHOWERING, HOWEVER, IS FINE. BE SURE TO LIMIT THE AMOUNT OF WATER YOU GET ON YOUR NEW TATTOO WHILE SHOWERING. WHEN YOU ARE FINISHED SHOWERING, BE SURE TO DRY YOUR NEW TATTOO WITH A PAPER TOWEL OR A NEW CLEAN BATH TOWEL. DIRTY OR USED TOWELS CAN SPREAD BACTERIA OVER YOUR NEW TATTOO.

  • IT IS RECOMMENDED TO WASH YOUR TATTOO ONCE IN THE MORNING AND ONCE IN THE EVENING.

 

IT IS UP TO YOU TO TAKE PROPER CARE OF YOUR TATTOO BY FOLLOWING THE AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS PROVIDED. CONSULT/SEEK THE ADVICE OR TREATMENT OF A PHYSICIAN OR LOCAL ER IF YOU SHOW ANY OF THE FOLLOWING: ABNORMAL IRRITATION OR REDNESS, UNUSUAL TENDERNESS, OR ANY POSSIBLE SIGN OF HEALING COMPLICATIONS OR INFECTIONS.

ALL WORK IS GUARANTEED EXCEPT HANDS, NECK, AND FEET. HANDS, NECK, AND FEET ARE ONLY GRANTED ONE FREE TOUCH-UP.

TOUCH-UPS ARE PROVIDED AT NO CHARGE BY THE ARTIST THAT YOU WERE TATTOOED BY AS LONG AS THE PROPER AFTERCARE PROCESS THAT WE RECOMMEND WAS FOLLOWED.
