The life of your tattoo is dependent upon the care it receives within the first few days... it takes about two weeks to heal, and two more weeks to settle in.

Keep your tattoo bandaged from 2 to 10 hours. Remove gauze and wash tattoo gently with cool, soapy water. Rinse thoroughly, lightly pat dry with a clean towel. You may wish to, with clean hands, apply a THIN layer of Bephanten (sold in regular pharmacies) 4 to 5 times a day for at least a week.

DO NOT re-bandage your tattoo
DO NOT use Vaseline or petroleum jelly
DO NOT use alcohol or peroxide
DO NOT pick or scratch tattoo
DO NOT soak tattoo in tub or shower- get in, get clean, get out!

Stay out of pools, hot tubs, oceans, etc. for two weeks
Keep tattoo out of direct sunlight and/or tanning beds

If a rash occurs (bumps on or around the tattoo as with an allergic reaction) or redness persists, discontinue use and call us for suggestions or product alternatives.
