Aftercare starts as soon as your tattoo is done. I will cover the area in plastic wrap or Second Skin. This covering prevents bacteria from getting into your skin. It also protects the tattoo from rubbing on your clothes and getting irritated.
Keep the cover on for three hours unless instructed otherwise. It will help absorb any fluid or excess ink that leaks from the tattoo.
After the removal of the cover, wash your hands with lukewarm water and soap. Then gently wash the tattoo with fragrance-free soap and water.
Pat your skin dry with a soft cloth. You can keep the bandage off at this point to let your skin breathe. After three days, start applying lotion two to four times per day based on your skins sensitivity.
While your tattoo heals,
wear sun-protective clothing whenever you go outside
call your tattoo artist or doctor if you have any signs of infection or other problems
cover your tattoo with sunblock until it’s fully healed
scratch or pick at the tattoo
wear tight clothing over the tattoo
go swimming or immerse your body in water (showers are fine)
don't let any pets come in contact with the tattoo
