Tattoo After Care
- Remove bandage after 1-2 hours
- Wash with mild hand-soap
- Apply a very thin layer of Cocoa Butter or Aquaphor 2 or 3 times a day for at least 5 to 7 days. It should be thin enough that you can barely tell there’s anything there. It should rub in like lotion.
Your tattoo will peel and, in rare cases, scab. Try not to pick at it. It will itch. Don’t scratch it.
No pools, direct sunlight, or hot tubs until the tattoo is healed.
Sunscreen will help keep your tattoo looking its best as well as help protect your skin.
