Wear bandage for at least 4 hours. Wash your hands before removing your bandage. Upon removal of bandage, immediately wash your tattoo using unscented soap and your finger tips. Wash until all ointment and blood are removed. This usually requires several washings. Do not use any sort of wash cloth or scrubby thing as this will be far too abrasive.Wash your tattoo frequently for the first day. Every couple of hours or so is what I suggest.
Continue washing your tattoo 2 to 3 times a day for the first few days.
As the tattoo begins to dry out reduce washing to once or twice daily.
Do not pick or scratch at your tattoo.
Do not soak or submerge your tattoo in water for at least 3 weeks.
Keep your tattoo out of direct sunlight and tanning booths.
After about a week or so any scabbing that may have developed on your tattoo will most likely flake and peel off. Once the tattoo is done flaking you may begin using a small amount of unscented lotion.
