I want to make sure everyone is giving proper Aftercare to their new tattoos,
Aftercare is just as important as any other step in your tattooing process.
Giving your tattoo proper aftercare will ensure its longevity and look.
After getting your tattoo, go home WITHIN THE HOUR and wash wish Dial or another type of anti-bacterial soap,
PAT dry and rub some regular (original) A&D ointment on, (not a lot) just a thin layer and rub it in like lotion (until its gone)
Keep applying A&D for about 3 or 4 days *only once or twice a day (rubbing it in as explained above)
you do NOT want to keep your scabs TOO wet and saturated with A&D.
It may lead to prolonged healing and TOO much ink bleeding (or 'falling') out.
after the first couple of days with the A&D, switch to regular (original) Lubriderm which has NO dyes, colors, or scents.
continue to apply Lubriderm whenever your tattoo gets dry, itchy, or uncomfortable
Try to let your tattoo breathe as much as possible (with loose or no clothing)
DO NOT PICK OR SCRATCH your tattoo
keep your tattoo OUT of DIRECT SUNLIGHT for 3weeks!
NO POOLS OR BEACHES OR LAKES for 3weeks!
If there are any questions, problems, or concerns contact me.
