Taking care of your tattoo is important!! Tattoo aftercare is simple but essential. Please fully read this through.
The first thing to remember is ... be kind to yourself after getting tattooed!
Plan in some rest time, take it easy, eat your favourite snacks.
KEEP IT CLEAN
Keep your bandage on for 3-4 hours.
Wash your hands before touching your tattoo .
Take off your bandage in a clean bathroom and wash it immediately with unscented soap and warm water.
Pat dry with paper towels or a fresh clean towel.
Repeat twice a day until fully healed.
Make sure to use clean towels, bedding and clothing while your tattoo heals.
Your tattoo will dry up as it heals (much like a graze).
Use an unscented white lotion to moisturise your tattoo.
Use a small amount as needed. Twice a day often works well but you may want to up it when it dries up
Don’t smoother your tattoo, up the frequency not the quantity!
Scratch or pick your tattoo whilst it’s healing (I know it’s hard).
Soak your tattoo - no swimming, saunas or hot tubs (showers are fine).
Sit in the sun! Especially whilst it’s healing and once it’s healed always use sunblock.
Consult google for aftercare advice!
Everyone heals at a different speed.
Keep up with this aftercare until your tattoo is back to normal skin!
