+  Leave your bandage on for 1 - 2 hours.

​  

+  Wash your hands thoroughly before removing your bandage.   

    Clean your tattoo with a mild anti-bacterial soap and warm 

    water.  Use your fingertips to massage the area, removing ink,

    dried fluids and ointment.  Do not scrub!

+  Dry the area by patting with a clean, sterile towel.  Do not rub!

+  Let your tattoo dry completely (approximately 10 minutes).

+  Do not re-bandage the tattooed area.  Your tattoo needs to "breathe".​

​+  For the first 3-4 days, gently massage a very small amount of a

     light, water-based cream or lotion, like  After Inked, on your

     tattooed area.  Moisturize whenever your tattoo feels dry.  Do not use

     an oily or petroleum-based product.  After the first 3 or 4 days,

     lightly moisturize the area in the morning and in the evening to

     prevent your skin from itching.​

+   A tattoo normally takes 7 - 10 days to heal.
