Tattoo After Care






General Things to Avoid

  • Do not pick or scratch it, no matter how tempting!
  • Avoid perfume and highly scented products during the healing process.
  • Avoid sun exposure — especially when it's healing, but generally throughout the life of it as well.


Day 1

When you first get a tattoo, it will be covered over. Keep this cover on it for at least 2-3 hours after leaving the shop. Be careful when removing it because it can stick. You may need to apply some luke-water to tease it off.

On removal of the covering, wash the tattoo VERY GENTLY with a mild anti-septic soap, then rinse thoroughly. Pat dry with a clean soft towel, then after washing your hands apply a very thin amount of *AQUAPHOR*. Repeat this as needed when the tattoo dries out.



Good aftercare boils down to these three components: clean, moisturize, and protect. If you follow this advice, your tattoo should be as bright as the day you got it for the rest of your life!

Good Luck!
