Tattoo Aftercare

If your tattoo is bandaged with second skin:

  • Remove the bandage after 7 days.

  •  If the bandage is difficult to remove, remove in the shower or under water.

  • Remove the bandage slowly from top to bottom.

  • Apply provided vitamin A & D ointment to your tattoo whenever dry until your tattoo is fully healed.

If your tattoo has the traditional bandaging:

  • Remove the wrap within 2 hours of leaving the shop.

  • Lather our hands with a gentle unscented soap, and very gently wash your tattoo with the soap and rinse.

  • Pat dry with a paper towel. DO NOT use a cloth towel. DO NOT rub the tattoo.

  • Wash once in the morning, and once at night.

  • DO NOT over wash the tattoo.

  • DO NOT re-wrap the tattoo.

  • After 2-3 days, begin to apply provided vitamin A & D ointment to the tattoo until healed.

During the healing process:

  • Apply a thin layer to vitamin A & D ointment. DO NOT oversaturate the tattoo.

  • If you run out of A & D ointment, any plain unscented lotion will work.

  • Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least 10-14 days.

  • For 2 weeks, do not submerge your tattoo. (ex – baths, dishes, pools, hot tubs, etc).

  • Do not rub, scratch, or pick at your tattoo while it is healing. Patting the tattoo is okay to relieve itching.

  • After two weeks, apply a minimum of SPF 25 sunscreen to your tattoo to avoid fading/damaging your new tattoo.


Please follow the aftercare instructions to ensure the longevity of your tattoo.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please follow up with your artist or consult your doctor.
