Tattoo Aftercare

Take your bandage off in one to two hours after you receive your new tattoo.

Begin by washing your new tattoo with warm, soapy water three to four times daily.

You will need to put a small amount of Vitamins A & D Ointment on your tattoo after washing for the first five days.

You will continue this process for five days. After the fifth day, you can reduce your washing to two or three times a day.

It is very important that you keep your new tattoo out of the sunlight for at least ten days. After that time, you may resume tanning. If you want to keep your colors the brightest for the longest time you will need to use a sun block of SPF 30 or greater when tanning.

No swimming in a pool or lake for at least five days after your new tattoo has been applied so that you avoid any diseases that may be in the water.
