TATTOO AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS

WHAT TO DO AFTER GETTING A TATTOO:

The following Aftercare instructions must be followed, as this will result in how well your tattoo heals.

  1. Take bandage off after 1-2 hours MAX.

  2. Wash tattoo with warm water and liquid antibacterial soap (Liquid Dial soap) to remove any excess blood and plasma. DO NOT USE BAR SOAP

  3. Pat tattoo dry and apply thin amounts of what your tattoo artist has suggested for you.

 

WHAT NOT TO DO AFTER GETTING A TATTOO:

  1. DO NOT use scented soaps, shampoos, lotions, or body wash on a fresh tattoo.

  2. Keep tattoo out of the sun until it’s completely healed.

  3. DO NOT submerge tattoo in water for extended periods of time. This includes bathtubs, pools, hot tubs, the ocean, lakes and/or ponds.

  4. DO NOT pick scabs off of tattoos. If your tattoo itches, you may gently slap the tattoo. DO NOT scratch at it.

  5. DO NOT cover your tattoo with any bandage or wrap, your skin needs to breathe too!

 

Tattoo aftercare is very important! If you do not follow your aftercare suggestions, large amounts of scabbing, scarring, and/or infection may occur.

We tattoo in a very clean and sterile environment with clean and sterile equipment. So it is your responsibility to take care of your tattoo after leaving our facility.
