Quick Tips for aftercare Tattoos

  • Be sure your artist covers your new tattoo in a thin layer of petroleum jelly and a bandage.

  • Remove the bandage after 24 hours. Gently wash the tattoo with antimicrobial soap and water and be sure to pat dry.

  • Apply a layer of antibacterial/Vaseline ointment twice a day, but don’t put on another bandage.

  • Gently wash your tattoo area twice a day with soap and water and gently pat dry before reapplying the antibacterial/Vaseline ointment.

  • Keep applying a moisturizer or ointment after you clean it to keep it moist.

If your tattoo scabs a bit or develops hard layers, don’t worry. It’s normal. But never pick, scratch, or peel it. You could get an infection or remove the color. If you think your tattoo is infected, or isn’t healing properly, go see your doctor.
