TATTOO CARE


It’s very important to know How to Care for a Tattoo, since your tattoo aftercare will affect how your tattoo ends up looking.
Tattoos that are poorly cared for might end up with splotches of lighter color or, even worse, an infection.
Tattoos that are properly cared for look vibrant and healthy after they are finished healing.
Always wash your hands before touching your new tattoo.
  • Before bed, rinse your new tattoo with diluted warm/cool soapy water. Using a non-fragrance, unscented soap.
  • We recommend a basic glycerin or tea tree soap.
  • Gently wash tattoo with your hands until all the “icky gooey stuff” is gone.
  • Rinse thoroughly (cool water)
  • Use a clean towel to pat dry area.
  • When you pat dry your tattoo, it will still feel slightly moist.
  • Wait about ten to fifteen minutes until it is dry.
  • Wash your hands and apply a small amount of aftercare lotion to your tattoo.
  • Massage in and wipe off excess.
  • Your tattoo should feel like the rest of your skin
  • If it feels wetter, remove excess lotion, if it feels dryer, apply lotion.
