HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR NEW TATTOO
Step 1 - Leave bandage on for 3-4 hours - maximum 24hrs.
Step 2 - Remove bandage and wash tattoo with antibacterial soap, gently wash off any fluid that has built up underneath the bandage.
Step 3 - Keep dry, you can wash your tattoo quickly with warm water but no soaking, no baths, no pools, no hot tubs etc.
Step 4 - After keeping dry for 1-2 days you can begin to apply a small amount of non-scented lotion or recommended tattoo aftercare product a few times a day, when itchy, dry, or irritated.
If bandaged with saniderm :
Step 1 - Leave saniderm on overnight.
Step 2 -
- (A). If on day 2 there is no excessive weeping/fluid under the saniderm, keep bandage on for one more night. Than move on to step 3.
- (B). If on day 2 you notice excessive weeping/fluid under the saniderm, we recommend you return to the shop to have the bandage replaced with a new one. This second bandage will stay on for another 1-2 days. Than move on to step 3.
Step 3 - Remove Bandage, wash your tattoo with antibacterial soap and leave dry for another 1-2 days.
Step 4 - Now you can begin to apply a small amount of non-scented lotion or recommended tattoo aftercare product a few times a day, when itchy, dry, or irritated.
