Tattoo Aftercare

The longevity and vibrancy of your tattoo is directly related to how well you follow aftercare instructions:

  • Leave bandage on overnight.

  • In the morning, carefully remove the bandage and gently wash with Tea Tree bar soap.

  • Tea Tree bar soap can be found at Whole Foods or in the Nature’s Market section of Kroger.

  • PAT dry with a clean paper towel, do not wipe.

  • Apply a very thin layer of Aquaphor ointment and rub in until fully absorbed. Do this 2-3 times a day for 3-4 days.

  • After 3-4 days stop using Aquaphor and switch to a fragrance-free and aloe-free lotion.

  • We suggest Curel or Lubriderm. Use lotion 2-3 times per day for several weeks or until tattoo is fully healed.

  • Once fully healed, apply sunscreen to your tattoo if you are outside for an extended period of time to avoid fading.

  • DO NOT pick at scabs, soak your tattoo or swim

  • DO NOT expose to direct sunlight/tanning

  • Keep pets and children away from tattoos to avoid infection

  • Touchups are for tattoo imperfections, not for poor aftercare
