Tattoo Aftercare   -   Piercing Aftercare

In 1-2 hours, remove bandage. Use clean hands to wash tattoo thoroughly with hot water (do not use a washcloth). Rinse with cold water. Pat dry with a clean towel or let air dry.

Apply a small amount of ointment and massage into the area. Aquaphor is recommended.

Wash tattoo three to five times daily during the initial healing period of 5 days.

After the tattoo begins to flake and peel freely, discontinue ointment. Apply a high quality lotion (fragrance free) as needed to prevent drying.

Avoid sun exposure, hot tubs and swimming until tattoo is completely healed (typically 2-3 weeks). Do not take long showers or soaks in the bathtub.

Even after tattoo is healed, sun exposure and tanning will fade and discolor your tattoo. Always protect your tattooo with at least SPF 50 sunscreen if you want your tattoo to retain its vibrancy.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call (858) 352-6750.
