The Right After Care
Remove bandage within 2 hours and wash it with luke warm water. Pat dry with dry paper towel and apply the ointment. (One that has been suggested by the artist.) clean any wet areas remaining with a clean paper towel.
Wash tattoo twice a day with luke warm water while its healing. Apply ointment to avoid dryness. Shower is OK, but donot soak your tattoo in water. Hence avoid bath tub and swimming pools for 2 weeks.
Donot pick or scratch any scabblings. Allow it to peel of on its own. Usually flakes off in 7 to 10 days. Keep it clean and keep using the ointment to avoid any troubles in the process of healing.
Donot expose the healing tattoo to sunlight. Avoid gym for 2 weeks. Keep it clean.
