How Do I Take Care of My New Tattoo?
Taking care of your new tattoo is one of the most important things you can do. Those first few weeks of healing are when your fresh ink is at its most sensitive. Here’s what you need to do:
Keep the tattoo wrapped for no longer than 2 hours after leaving our shop
Avoid touching a fresh tattoo
Make sure to thoroughly wash your hands while your tattoo is healing. This helps prevent an infection from spreading to your new ink
Wash with warm, soapy water then pat dry with a paper towel
Once dry, apply a small amount of unscented lotion. Use the good stuff
Continue this washing twice a day for the first two weeks
After one week, wash and lotion as needed
Never re-bandage your tattoo
Never scratch or pick at your new tattoo
Never swim, hop in the bathtub, go to the sauna, or go tanning while your tattoo is fresh
Swelling, redness, and soreness are all perfectly normal while your tattoo is healing
