take good care of your new tattoo

Wash your hands! Then, unwrap and wash well using warm/hot water and gentle soap. Use your hand only, no scrubbing. Wash, Rinse, Repeat.

Make sure you remove all the slimy pigment and plasma that seeped out.

Throughout the day wash your new tattoo 3-5 times. Let your tattoo dry on its own or gently pat dry with a clean paper towel. Keep it Clean. Let it Breathe!

No oils, ointments or lotion! Wash any time you think it may have gotten any germs on it.

Before bed, wash, pat dry with a clean paper towel and re-cover with new plastic wrap.

Continue to keep your new tattoo Clean! WASH, WASH, WASH, pat dry with clean paper towel and use VERY SPARINGLY, a small amount of coconut oil or unscented lotion. 1-2 times per day is all you need. Keep it Clean, let it Breathe- a bit more dry is better than too moist.

Absolutely No Direct Sunlight for a month. Cleanliness is still key. Wash your tattoo frequently with warm water and soap. DO NOT TOUCH YOUR TATTOO unless your hands are clean.

Be gentle with your skin. If you scab, leave the scab on as long as it takes to fall off naturally. Picking at your tattoo results in loss of pigment.
