Congrats! You have a new tattoo!
Leave the bandage that you received after the tattoo for 2-4 hours (No more than 10 hours). This bandage is there to keep air-borne bacteria and other contaminants in the environment from invading your wound. DO NOT RE-BANDAGE!
Before cleaning or touching the tattooed areas, wash hands thoroughly with soap and warm water. Treat your new tattoo as an open wound.
Carefully remove the bandage. If it sticks, gently wet any applied bandage and gently pull off so as not to damage any scabs or dried matter. Don’t force it’s removal!
After removing the bandage, cleanse the area with antibacterial soap, such as :
Recovery Tattoo Soap
Following, water then rinse. Do not scrub the tattoo or rub with washcloth or towel. Pat dry with a clean dry towel and let the tattoo dry completely
Lightly apply a thin layer of ointment such as :
Recovery Tattoo Salve
Make sure the tattoo is kept very clean and apply ointment 3-4 times a day by cleansing any old ointment and applying a thin layer of fresh ointment (only enough to make the skin shiny). Do not allow your tattoo to become dry. If a scab does form, do not pick at it, but allow it to heal on it’s own.
At the end of day 3 switch to a fragrance free lotion or gentle moisturizer as needed until completely healed. It is best to use a moisturizer with aloe or vitamin E as this will help heal damaged skin. Regularly moisturizing a tattoo helps to keep the skin soft and the colors bright.Also, the sun can irreversibly damage even a well healed tattoo so remember to use a good sun block with strong SPF when spending time outdoors.
