Proper aftercare for your new tattoo is essential to the tattoo’s health. Our artists will provide you with aftercare instructions the day of your tattoo, but in case you’re curious before hand or forgetful after, here’s what we recommend:

• Remove bandage after 24 hours. Leave bandage on overnight if you get tattooed later in the evening

• Wash hands well with liquid antibacterial soap (i.e. Dial)

• Wash tattoo well with liquid Dial soap, pat dry with a clean paper towel - let air dry for a minute or two

• After air-drying freshly washed tattoo, apply a very THIN layer of Aquaphor or A&D, 2x a day for 2 days

• Tattoo should NEVER be sticky or shiny

• After 2 days, leave tattoo clean & dry until completely healed. If itching occurs, use Lubriderm or another fragrance-free gentle lotion

• Should it be necessary, there will be a nominal touch-up fee for any face, hand, finger, toe, elbow or knee tattoos

• Keep tattoo out of direct sunlight

NO pool, ocean or hot tub for 2 weeks

NO scratching, picking or peeling

• Make sure any clothing in contact with your fresh tattoo is clean, soft and loose

If you have any questions, please get in touch with your artist directly, or contact the shop.

Thank you & happy healing!
