After Care: The following steps should be taken to ensure proper healing of the tattoo. Keep in mind, a tattoo is an open wound and some complications may be unavoidable, but proper aftercare will minimize the possibility of a complication or infection. Always consult with your physician if you have any concerns about your healing tattoo.

  • Days 1-2: Depending on the size and style of tattoo, you will be instructed to remove your sanitary bandage to complete the first wash within the first two days. If your tattoo was wrapped, you’ll need to remove the wrap without damaging the skin by gently rubbing with unscented antibacterial soap and warm water as you pull the bandage slowly down parallel to the skin. If you feel pain or tugging at your skin, slow down using more water and soap until the bandage comes off easily. Take your time to avoid damaging your skin or the tattoo. Your skin may still be pretty tender to the touch, red and inflamed. Wash about 2 times a day gently with unscented, alcohol free, hand soap, air dry or pat with a clean paper towel, and apply an unscented moisturizer.

  • Days 3-6: Your tattoo at this point may appear dull as the skin regenerates, you may feel tightness or even see scabbing within your tattoo. Be careful not to remove scabbing or pick at dryness as you may damage the tattoo. Continue to wash 2-3 times a day, drying and moisturizing each time. Avoid friction on the skin as well as any activity which might leave sweat and bacteria on the surface of your skin to fester.

  • Days 6-14: Be prepared to deal with dry, flaky, peeling of the skin as the tattoo heals. Do not ever pick at flakes or scabs. At this point, you may drop your washes to about twice a day, allowing the tattoo to fully dry between washes. After 2 weeks the tattoo should be mostly healed but continue to moisturize daily with unscented lotion.

  • Tattoos can take up to 4 months to heal completely, remember to use SPF to protect from sun damage, moisturize daily, and contact a doctor if you run into any trouble.

Permanent cosmetics and microblading are not available at this time.
