    this is the aftercare from my artist

    • Keep tattoo wrapped for 24 hours
    • Take off bandage/saran
    • With wet paper towel and warm water, GENTLY wipe/pat the area
    Showering Instructions:

      • Keep shower brief and keep your tattoo as dry as possible
      • Lather hands with mild UN-SCENTED soap
      • Wash tattoo with palm of your hand
      • Rinse for approximately 20 seconds
    **Do NOT SOAK**

    ·GENTLY Pat dry tattoo
    ·Air out for approximately 30 minutes
    ·With CLEAN HANDS, apply a small amount of UN-SCENTED (Blue Lid) Vaseline Intensive Care Lotion and GENTLY massage onto skin
    ·Apply this cream to area throughout the day as required to keep tattoo moist and prevent flaking
    ·Apply cream before bed in same manner as above
    ·DO NOT Pick or Scratch your tattoo regardless of the urge to do so, as this may prevent healing and/or cause irregularities in the tattoo as healing occurs resulting in damage (ie. scarring and other esthetic problems)
    *If absolutely necessary, lightly smack the surrounding area to relieve itchiness*

    Use Common Sense:
    STAY OUT of bathtubs, hot tubs, and swimming pools until scabbing is gone
    Showers are fine, but try not to soak your tattoo
    Try to keep your tattoo from direct sunlight and use sunblock

    **FAILURE TO FOLLOW ABOVE AFTER CARE INSTRUCTIONS WILL RESULT IN LOSS OF FREE TOUCH UPS**


    Tattooist reserves the right to “bitch-slap” those who do not comply with the explicit instructions as outlined above
