After care instructions

After you remove the bandage,1-2 hours after tattoo is complete you will want to wash your tattoo use lukewarm water and mild, liquid antibacterial soap to gently wash away any ointment,blood and/or plasma and to completely clean the area.

Do not use a wash cloth or anything abrasive. Your hand is your best tool in this case.
If your tattoo feels slimy and slippery, you have probably been oozing plasma. Try to gently remove as much of this as possible, when the plasma dries on the skin surface, it creates scabs.

Then pat (do not rub) the area firmly with a CLEAN towel or paper towel to get it completely dry. Follow with a very light application of your choice of ointment,- BEPANTHEN is our first choice, or any tattoo goo you have had success with

 repeat this process for the first two days and then just apply a light cover of cream for the next 7-10 days 2-4 times a day depending on healing time.

NO -scratching-picking Swimming ,Spa pools,baths direct sun or soaking in water-Shower is fine
