Q:HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY NEW TATTOO AFTER IT HAS BEEN DONE AND I LEAVE THE SHOP?
A:There are a few simple steps you can take to ensure good healing. These are our recommendations;
1. Remove bandages after 2 to 4 hours. Wash area with mild soap and warm water, Blot dry and do NOT rebandage.
2. Apply a small amount of BACITRACIN or A&D antibiotic ointment to the area approximately 3 times a day for 3 to 4 days only. Next apply a mild skin lotion (i.e., Curel , Lubriderm or Aquaphor) a few times a day for the next 7 to 10 days. Try not to let the tattoo dry out completely.
3. If a rash develops, discontinue using the antibiotic ointment and just use the skin lotion.
4. Do not soak tattoo. Avoid swimming pools, salt water, sun burns, oil etc. for at least 10 days.
If a scab forms, DO NOT PICK OR SCRATCH. Just keep using lotion.
