After 3 hours, remove the bandage gently and wash with warm water and mild soap. DO NOT REBANDAGE.
Apply a thin layer of Aquaphor, A&D Ointment, or the like 3 times a day for the next 3 days. After 3 days, use an unscented hand lotion like Lubriderm or Curel, until skin returns to its pre-tattoo condition.
Stay out of sunlight and tanning booths until tattoo is healed, at least 7-10 days.
Do not soak tattoo in tub, sauna, jacuzzi or go swimming while your new tattoo
is healing. Showers are fine.
DO NOT RUB or PICK the treated area while it is healing. Loss of color and/or
infection could occur.
Extreme sun and exposure over the years can and will fade your tattoo. This can
be minimized by using a strong sunscreen, at least SP25.
Your tattoo should heal in 2 weeks. Consult a physician and file a report with the
Environmental Health Office where the tattoo establishment is permitted if any signs or symptoms develop such as redness at site, green/yellow discharge (foul smelling) and/or fever.
Do not listen to your friends about the healing process of tattoos!
