Tattoo Aftercare

Careful steps have been taken to prevent infection during your tattoo procedure. Infection is still possible during the healing process. To properly care for your tattoo and reduce the risk of infection after the completion of your tattoo, please be sure to follow these aftercare instructions:


·      Gently wash your tattoo with warm, soapy water and pat dry with a soft towel

·      Let tattoo air out for 20-60 minutes after washing

·      Apply a small amount of vitamin A&D ointment (original formula only), Tattoo Goo, TAT Wax, or Aquaphor by Eucerin

·      Repeat this process 2-3 times a day for approximately five days

·      After approximately 3-5 days, switch to a hypoallergenic skin lotion (for example Lubriderm, Curel or Eucerin)

·      Continue to apply skin lotion for up to two weeks



Important DO NOT information


·      DO NOT swim or soak in water

·      DO NOT wrap up your tattoo after leaving unless otherwise instructed

·      DO NOT expose your UNHEALED tattoo to direct sunlight or tanning booths
