Tattoo Aftercare

A large part of how a fresh tattoo will look after it heals is in your hands! Here are our suggested instructions on how to properly care for your new tattoo and some additional pointers to make sure you have a successful, easy, and comfortable healing period. Any questions please call us!


Leave bandage on for a minimum of 3 hours. After removing the bandage, clean tattoo gently with unscented soap and warm water. Rinse well and pat dry with paper towel. Do not re-bandage.


Apply a VERY THIN layer of Bepanthen or our aftercare ointment 2-3 times a day for 3 days. On the 4th day switch to a small amount of unscented hand lotion. Use daily until tattoo is healed. It will take 2-4 weeks until fully healed.


During the healing process your tattoo will peel and flake, this is normal. It will also become very itchy. DO NOT scratch it! Allow it to flake off naturally.


NO sun, Swimming, SCRATCHING or SOAKING for at least 2 weeks. Always use sunblock on healed tattoos!
