FIRST: -Take a photo with your phone so you can look at your new tattoo and show it to others.
This is important because you must keep your bandage over the tattoo until the following morning. This allows your own medicine (your lymph fluid) to form and harden... that is Mother Nature's bandage.
Remove your bandage in the morning. Rinse the tattoo gently with warm water! Do not WASH. NO SOAP for two weeks. Only water.
Dab a pea size drop of Vasoline over the tattoo with a clean paper towel. Blot the Vasoline completely off of the tattoo... GENTLE. No rubbing or wiping. Blot ALL the shine away. You only need one molecule of moisture over the surface of the new tattoo. More grease and your tattoo will smother and die! Do this for the next 3-5 days, 3 times a day.
Start regular lotion, we recommend Curel Basic Healing (at the dollar aisle in your neighborhood market). Use is as often as you need (whenever the tattoo feels dry, is itching, etc.). Again, only a pea size amount will cover the entire tattoo. Blot the lotion around and remove any excess .... this stops the drying and flaking and itching. Use for the rest of your life, if you wish. Tattoos LOVE moisture.
Keep out of sun for two weeks, do NOT scratch or try to hurry the peeling process. That peeling is protecting the ink you just paid for us to apply.
Don't go to swimming pools, saunas or hot tubs while tattoo is healing.
