Congratulations! You've been tattooed! That's just the first part of your new tattoo, the rest is up to you. Here is some aftercare advice to heal that tattoo safely.
*You will leave your appointment with the tattoo cleaned and wrapped in plastic wrap, leave that on as long as possible the day of the tattoo, it may look oozy and gross by the end of the day, don't worry, that's normal.
*It may be sore and/or swollen for a while, your skin just took a beating, using an ice pack on the outside of the plastic wrap is okay.
*When you take the wrap off clean the tattoo carefully with mild soap and water, it might look like you're washing some ink off, don't panic, it's normal.
*Pat dry with clean paper towels and wrap it back up with plastic wrap.
*Repeat this process for 2 or 3 days, keeping the tattoo covered as much as possible and any time it will be rubbing on clothes or potentially getting dirty.
*After 2 or 3 days the tattoo will start to peel. During the peeling phase, clean it carefully and apply a thin layer of fragrance-free lotion (we recommend Lubriderm). Do not rewrap after lotion.
*During peeling it will look like ink is also peeling off, don't panic this is normal.
*The healing process should take 1-2 weeks, if you take care of it and keep it clean and free from rubbing on clothes it should heal up beautifully.
During healing DO NOT:
*Allow tattoo to rub on clothing
*Get the tattoo dirty
*Use Neosporin or any type of ointment
*Use excessive amounts of lotion
*Pick or scratch the tattoo (we know it itches but leave it alone!)
*Expose it to direct sunlight
*Submerge in water (no baths or swimming)
