TATTOO AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS

YOUR TATTOO IS A FRESH WOUND AND SHOULD BE TREATED AS SUCH. CAREFULLY FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE BEST RESULTS IN HEALING YOUR NEW TATTOO.

• • •

AFTER THREE (3) HOURS, REMOVE THE BANDAGE GENTLY AND WASH WITH WARM WATER AND ANTI-BACTERIAL SOAP. DO NOT RE-BANDAGE.

APPLY A THIN LAYER OF A&D OINTMENT, AQUAPHOR, OR THE LIKE, THREE (3) TIMES A DAY FOR THE FIRST WEEK. AFTER THE FIRST WEEK, USE AN UNSCENTED HAND LOTION SUCH AS CUREL OR LUBRIDERM UNTIL THE SKIN RETURNS TO ITS PRE-TATTOO CONDITION. THIS COULD TAKE UP TO A MONTH.

STAY OUT OF DIRECT SUNLIGHT AND TANNING BOOTHS FOR AT LEAST TWO (2) WEEKS UNTIL YOUR TATTOO IS COMPLETELY HEALED.

DO NOT SOAK TATTOO IN TUB, SAUNA, JACUZZI, OR GO SWIMMING FOR AT LEAST TWO (2) WEEKS WHILE YOUR TATTOO IS HEALING. NORMAL SHOWERS ARE FINE.

DO NOT RUB, PICK, OR SCRATCH THE TREATED AREA WHILE IT IS HEALING. LOSS OF COLOR AND / OR INFECTION COULD OCCUR.

YOUR TATTOO SHOULD HEAL COMPLETELY IN TWO (2) WEEKS. CONSULT WITH YOUR ARTIST FIRST, THEN A PHYSICIAN IF ANY SIGNS OR SYMPTOMS DEVELOP SUCH AS REDNESS AT SITE, GREEN / YELLOW DISCHARGE, FOUL SMELL, OR FEVER.

EXTREME SUN AND EXPOSURE OVER THE YEARS CAN AND WILL FADE YOUR TATTOO. THIS CAN BE MINIMIZED BY USING A STRONG SUNSCREEN (AT LEAST SPF25).
