A new tattoo is an open wound, so take care of it! Make sure hands are clean before touching a new tattoo. Keep bandage on until you can wash with antibacterial or antimicrobial soap.
Twice daily - lather soap in hand and gently wash area for at least 2 full minutes. Rinse, pat dry with paper towel and let air dry for 20 minutes.
After 2 days a tattoo will begin to dry out. Now, use tattoo aftercare after cleaning routine. Rub a small amount of aftercare in until completely absorbed. Remove any excess aftercare and pat dry with paper towel.
Initial healing is 8-12 days...give or take. During healing, do not go swimming, soak in tub, expose to sunlight or scratch entire tattoo area. Please use common sense!
