Your new tattoo is an open wound, please treat it as so.

Day 1: Keep tattoo bandaged for 3-5 hours. Remove bandage. Gently wash with hands using mild soap and warm water. Apply a very thin coat of triple antibiotic ointment and/or re-wrap with a new clean bandage and keep on overnight.

Days 2 & 3: Wash tattoo 3-4 times daily. Do not re-wrap tattoo. Apply a very thin coat of ointment twice daily (morning & night). You may use a lotion for sensitive skin.

Day 4: Tattoo will start to dry and peel. Use lotion 3-4 times daily for the following week. For the following month, please do not pick, scratch, or scrub at your new tattoo. Avoid sunlight, tanning beds, pools and hot tubs.
