How to care for your new tattoo

1:: Remove bandage after 4—6 hours. DO NOT RE-BANDAGE!
2:: Wash tattoo gently with anti-bacterial soap and warm water to remove all medication, excess color and dry blood.
3:: Dry tattoo by blotting with soft, clean, dry towel. DO NOT RUB.
4:: During the healing process which will take between 7-14 days, you will want to wash and dry your tattoo 2-3 times daily as described above.
5:: After washing and drying your tattoo, apply a small amount of moisturizer [original Curél is recommended]. Do not over apply, you simply want to keep the skin moist, you do not want to seal out the oxygen.
6:: A slight protective scab will form in about 2 days. DO NOT scratch or pick at tattoo. You can scratch around the tattoo or slap [lightly] it to relieve itching.
7:: DO NOT expose tattoo to direct sunlight.
9:: DO NOT soak in bath and NO swimming until skin is completely healed.
Proper care during healing will insure detail and color.
