Tattoo Aftercare Instructions:
Keep tattoo covered for at least one hour, and no longer than eight hours.
After removing bandage, wash tattoo and surrounding area with water and mild soap. (If bandage sticks to your tattoo, soak it in cool water until it falls off.)
Rinse away all surface blood, plasma, ointment, and remaining soap.
Always blot dry (don’t rub) until tattoo is completely healed.
Do not re-bandage tattoo.
Do not apply alcohol, peroxide, or betadine to tattoo.
Do not rub, pick or scratch your tattoo.
Apply a thin layer of After Inked tattoo moisturizer available for sale in shop
or A&D Ointment. (Do not use Neosporin).
Do this 4-6 times a day to keep tattoo from drying out.
After 2 days, depending on the rate of healing, continue to use the After Ink tattoo moisturizer otherwise you can switch to a high quality fragrance free lotion (i.e. Keri, Aveeno, or Eucerin) Keep skin moist not wet.
Keep pets away from healing tattoo.
Tattoo will “peel” in about one week. This is normal. It will look like color is coming off. It isn’t. It is simply dead skin shedding itself. Your fresh tattoo will be underneath.
Do not expose tattoo to sunlight for at least 2 weeks.
Do not soak in bathtub, hottub, lakes or pools for 2 weeks.
If the area around the tattoo becomes more and more red, discontinue lotion, let tattoo dry out, and wash with an antibacterial soap and water 3 times daily.
In the event of an infection of the tattoo, please consult with your physician and notify the Westchester County Dept. of Health.
