Tattoo Aftercare:

1. Leave your plastic wrap on the tattoo for the first 18-24 hrs. (you may remove the original plastic if the tattoo is oozing a lot, then wash with warm water and soap, re-apply ointment and re-wrap.) Leave wrapping on for the first night.

2. The Next morning remove the plastic and wash tattoo thoroughly with warm water and a mild soap (perfumed soaps will burn). You can expect the plastic wrap to be filled with plasma and possibly some blood...dont worry, this is normal and a good thing. *If your tattoo is still oozing clear-ish liquid, you may continue to re-wrap it and keep it wrapped, until it has stopped oozing.

3. After washing, let your tattoo air-dry for 10-15 minutes.

4. Apply a VERY THIN layer of ointment to the tattoo ( Aquaphor, Vaseline, or A&D ointment are recommended, do not use an Anti-bacterial ointment like Neosporin. Using clean hands, work vaseline/ointment into the tattoo as you would work lotion into the skin.

5. Blot off excess ointment with a clean paper towel. If your tattoo is very shiny or wet looking, then there is too much ointment and you should wipe that excess away.

6. Repeat steps 3-5 twice daily (morning and night) for 4-8 days

7. When the tattoo starts to peel or flake (approximately 4-8 days after application of tattoo) switch to a mild lotion such as Lubriderm Sensitive Skin or similar.
