Tattoo Care

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR TATTOO

After you’ve received your tattoo, the exciting part may be over, but there are crucial steps you must take to ensure proper healing. The healing process is the final stage in the journey of your tattoo.

Typically, a tattoo takes anywhere from 7 to 14 days to appear fully healed, contingent upon factors such as type, style, size, and placement. However, complete healing might extend up to 30 days.

We urge you to treat your tattoo with the same care you would any other wound.

Here are some guidelines:

  • Keep your tattoo clean. You can remove the protective plastic after an hour.
  • Wash your tattoo twice daily with antibacterial soap.
  • Allow it to air dry or gently pat it dry; do not rub.
  • Apply a thin layer of antibacterial ointment like Bacitracin or A&D Ointment for the first 3 days.
  • From the 4th day onward, use unscented, fragrance-free lotion such as Eucerin, Lubriderm, or Aquaphor for approximately 10 days to aid in the healing process.
  • Avoid activities like swimming, soaking in hot tubs, tanning, and, most importantly, refrain from scratching or picking at scabs.
