Aftercare for Your New Tattoo
- Remove bandage after eight hours
- Wash thoroughly with warm soapy water (no washcloths, just hands)
- Rinse with cool water and pat dry with a clean paper towel
- Leave alone and do not touch
For first three nights before going to bed: Apply a thin layer of Aquaphor ointment and rewrap your tattoo with saran wrap. Leave overnight and repeat steps one through four above.
Avoid activities that could put your tattoo at risk of infection. Do not sleep with or have pets near your fresh tattoo to avoid infection. Do not submerge tattoo for long periods of time while your tattoo is healing (such as baths or swimming).
Tattoos can take 2-4 weeks to heal. Some may take even longer.
