Aftercare Instructions

  1. Wash hands with warm water & anti-bacterial soap.  Dial gold liquid soap preferably, no fragrance or dye.
  2. Remove bandage after no more than 1 hour.  Do NOT re-bandage at all.
  3. Wash Tattoo with warm water and the same soap.
  4. Rinse Tattoo well.
  5. Blot dry with clean paper towel.
  6. Let Tattoo air dry for about 5 minutes.
  7. When Tattoo is dry apply Bacitracin, A&D, or Aquaphor in a thin layer, about the amount of chap stick you would use.  Continue to apply the ointment in between washings.
  8. Wash Tattoo 3-4 times daily more if needed, following the same procedure.  
  9. Use Bacitracin, A&D, or Aquaphor for 3-4 days.
  10. After the first 4 days replace the ointment with an unscented lotion.  

Make sure Tattoo is clean and moist at all times (excluding the 5 minutes after washing.)  Feet, hands, and fingers will require more attention.
