Second Skin (Saniderm/Tegaderm) -
*Keep second skin bandage on the area for 5-7 days.
*Remove bandage (can be easier to do in the shower) and wash the area with unscented soap.
*Pat dry with a clean towel.
*Apply a plain white water based lotion (Lubriderm/Jergens/Curel) or any other aftercare product immediately after removing bandage!
*Wash area once a day with the unscented soap and apply aftercare 3 times daily for the first week!
Non-Second Skin -
*Leave the bandage on for a minimum of 1-2 hours, maximum of overnight.
*Wash the tattoo with soap and water, do not scrub!
*WITH CLEAN HANDS apply chosen aftercare. We recommend Hustle Butter or H2Ocean.
*Use above aftercare for 2-4 days, twice a day, until the skin starts to dry out. Then switch to a scent-free dye-free lotion.
*Keep the tattoo completely out of the sun for at least 1 month, sunscreen after that.
*If there are any signs of infection please contact a health care professional!
Signs of infection may include: extreme tenderness, swelling, excessive redness, signs of puss/oozing from the area.
*Do not soak the tattoo.
*Avoid chlorine, lakes, and rivers for 2 weeks.
*Itching is part of the healing process. DO NOT SCRATCH IT!
*Leave the scabs on for as long as possible to avoid losing color.
