Tattoo Aftercare

Tattoo artists have varied approaches to tattoo aftercare, however, some pro tips:

-Do not use A&D ointment.  

-Moisturize your skin with unscented hand lotion.  

-Drink plenty of water, because water helps to maintain the elasticity of skin.

-Avoid alcoholic beverages as they can cause dehydration, which would be the opposite of hydrating your skin.

-Avoid using cocoa butter, and any lotions, soaps, or shower gels that have microbeads or fragrances of any kind.

-No direct sun for two weeks. Do not apply sunscreen to the tattoo.

-Take short showers and do not swim or saturate your new tattoo.

-Do not scratch or pick at it whatsoever.
