Tat After-Care Instructions

1.  Always Wash your hands prior to changing bandage.

2.  Apply a thin coat of Vitamin A&D Ointment to your New Tat.  

3.  A thin layer of an antibiotic ointment may also be applied to the tat.

4.  Carefully wash entire area with a mild soap and cool water four times a day.  Blot dry using only white unscented tissue or paper towel.  Gently rub ointment into tat.  Leave a light film of ointment on tat.
5.  A protective scab may form in 2-3 days and normally flake off by the 7th day. Do Not Pick at any scabs.  Once the Scab is all gone, discontinue the use of ointment. You may notice a white scaled layer on the tat at this time. This is your top dead layer of skin and it will soon flake off.

6. Avoid sunburn, salt or chlorine water, or hot tubs until your tat is completely healed.

7.  Never clean your tat with any alcohol product such as Bactine.

8. Note: In the first weeks, the colors in your new tat may look "hazy" or not as bright as they did when it was first applied. Do not be alarmed, it is a normal course of healing and will clear up in a few short weeks.  

9. Most of the healing occurs in the first 7 - 10 days.  Complete healing may take up to 45 days.

 

IMPORTANT: ANY COMPLICATIONS OR SIGNS OF INFECTION SHOULD BE REPORTED IMMEDIATELY TO YOUR TAT ARTIST
