The First Day
When the tattoo is finished i'll gave put a breathable waterproof bandage over it and instructed you to let it stay for 24hrs.
Wash it 2 to 3 times a day with antibacterial hand soap. (Dial Gold, liquid)
Rinse it then dab it dry with a paper towel only. (Do not use: rags, towels, or a tissue. This will leave particles behind as it heals and could cause irritation or infection)
Once dry apply a thin layer of Aquaphor ointment over the entire tattoo. DO NOT put a thick layer because it will be hard for the tattoo to breath and could cause need for a touch up.
Avoid direct sunlight.. it hurts.
Let nobody touch the tattoo.
Don't scratch it.
DO NOT PICK AT IT. LET YOUR BODY HEAL ON ITS OWN.
Bathing is fine, just be sure to wash around it.
(It's ok to let the water and soap run down it)
Be mindful when drying off after bathing. Dry AROUND the tattoo with a towel, pat dry with a paper towel.
