Tattoo Aftercare

Information you need to know to make an informed decision.

This page has a lot of information for you to empower yourself. Browse through it carefully so you can make an educated decision.  Please be aware that we do not automatically accept all tattoo projects.

Taking care of your tattoo is vital to your health and the health of your tattoo.

Here’s what you need to know

Wash hands thoroughly before touching your tattoo while it’s healing.

You may remove the tattoo dressing that you left the studio with when you get home.  Wetting the bandage may help remove it if if gives you any resistance.

Wash your tattoo every morning and night.  You should also wash throughout the day if it gets dirty.  Use common sense.  You may use a mild soap.  We recommend using Blue Green Foam Soap that we sell in the the studio as it does not require rinsing.  Rinse all other soap off with warm water.

Pat the tattoo dry when washing.  Never rub it.

Use a hot compress 2-3 minutes every morning and every night.  You may use a clean cloth and put under hot tap water and then apply it to your tattoo until it cools.  Repeat 2-3 times twice per day for one week.

After you have cleaned your tattoo and used the compress apply an ointment (we recommend Aquatat which we sell in the studio) lightly over the tattoo.  If your tattoo looks wet or shiny there is too much ointment applied.  Blot with a clean paper towel and rub in what is leftover. Do this three times per day

After 3 days cease using an ointment and switch to a moisturizing lotion.  We recommend Ocean Foam which we sell in the studio.  Use the moisturizing foam 3 times a day until healed.

Do not re-wrap your tattoo again for any reason.

You may not soak your tattoo for two weeks including but not limited to bath tubs, hot tubs, lakes, rivers, oceans, etc…..

Keep your new tattoo out of direct sunlight for two weeks.

Flaking is common and while the tattoo is fresh you will notice pigment flaking with skin.  This is normal.

By using the proper tattoo aftercare products as directed you can decrease the discomfort and the healing time of your new tattoo.

“Super clean environment!! Definitely a plus! I waited for maybe two minutes to go back. Before the service was performed James made sure that I was well educated on what to expect from the whole experience. Everything is sterilized right in front of you. The piercing was super fast and they use high quality jewelry!"
