Approximate Healing Time: Two to four (2-4) weeks
Supplies Needed: Aquaphor, or Fragrance Free and Dye Free mild skin lotion.
Keep your new tattoo bandaged for approximately four (4) hours. Then carefully remove bandage and wash entire area with mild soap and cool water. Dry the area, let it air dry for about 1 hour. Use only a very thin coating of Aquaphor or Lotion continue to re-apply it two-four (2-4) times daily for at least three (3) days. Do not rebandage the tattoo, as it could stick to the bandage and damage can occur.
Additional Considerations: Avoid sunburn, salt or chlorine water, or hot tubs until your tattoo is completely healed. In the event mild scabbing occurs, do not pick at or attempt to “wash off” the scab. Allow it to do so by itself. You may apply a mild skin lotion to keep “flaking” to a minimum.
