Remove bandage after 2 hours. Wash tattoo with antibacterial hand soap after removing bandage. Do not use a washcloth or paper towel to clean your new tattoo. Let tattoo air dry for 5-10 minutes after cleaning. Apply a small amount of non-scented, water based lotion to your tattoo. Rub lotion in completely so that there is no greasy residue. Your new tattoo will not need to be re-bandaged! Clean and apply lotion to your tattoo 2-3 times daily for the next 5-7 days, or until tattoo is finished peeling.
Please refrain from the following while your new tattoo is healing:
-Soaking in water (includes baths, saltwater, pools, etc)
-Ointments (please do not use any A&D, Neosporin, Aquaphor, etc on your new tattoo)
