Aftercare

Your care after you leave our studio is important to us. Here are a few aftercare instructions to follow. If you should have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call us at.

 

​Remove your bandages one to two hours after leaving the studio



Always wash your hands thoroughly prior to touching your new tattoo. Use antimicrobial soap such as ex Provon or antibacterial soap. Be sure to wash your tattoo at least three times a day

 

If needed, apply a small amount of ointment (Aquaphor, Aquatat, A&D or your preferred brand) to the tattooed area after washing. Always make sure your hands and tattoo are clean prior to applying the ointment



After three to five days, begin moisturizing with a non-scented lotion. Discontinue applying the ointment at this time



Avoid direct sunlight or tanning beds for a minimum of two weeks



Do not soak your tattoo in water. Please refrain from bathing or swimming during the recovery time



Avoid contact with pet hair or dander. It is recommended that blankets and bedsheets are changed if your pet lays on them

 

​Do not pick or scratch at your tattoo. It can become itchy and flaky
