Tattoo After Care
With clean hands, use warm water and antibacterial hand soap to clean your tattoo twice daily (in the morning and at night).
Steer clear of bar soaps. Stick to antibacterial or antimicrobial liquid soaps.
For the initial week, use a slim coat of Aquaphor. For the subsequent three weeks, apply non-scented/colored lotion during the healing phase.
Clean your tattoo in the morning and evening, and also after any exposure to outdoor elements.
Avoid swimming, prolonged water exposure, suntanning, and vigorous exercise for at least 3-4 weeks. Showers are fine, but don’t let the tattoo soak. Also, refrain from picking or scratching your tattoo.
