Tattoo After Care

In order to ensure premium tattoo quality please adhere to the following instructions, and using only the following products:


Dial Liquid Soap (Gold) . Aftercare Ointment.


Please be aware that the tattoo is an open wound and should be treated as that. During the first two days of healing, leave the recommended bandage on that I have applied, ensure to drink orange juice, and take two Tylenol tablets twice a day. Hands should always be washed before handling the tattoo cleaning process. To remove the bandage on the second day, apply Dial Liquid Soap and warm water over the bandage. Allow the water to soak beneath the bandage for smooth removal. Slowly peel the bandage off beneath the warm water. After the bandage has been completely removed, continue to wash the tattooed area for 10 minutes every 2-3 hours using a small amount of Dial Liquid Soap and warm water, ensuring there is no slimy residue or plasma build-up.

After you have completely washed and dried the tattoo each time, apply a thin coat of ointment over the area. It is extremely important to keep the tattooed area clean and moisturized. However, do not over-apply the ointment, as the tattoo needs to be able to "breathe" in order to heal. For the next 2 weeks, please continue to properly wash the tattoo as specified (for 10 minutes every 2-3 hours) and monitor the tattoo in between cleanings. If the tattoo becomes dry, rewash, and apply a thin layer of ointment to the entire area as needed. Do not swim, soak in a hot tub, sit in a sauna, or take a bath for the first 2 weeks. Do not expose your tattoo to the sun for the first 3 weeks or engage in gardening and/or activities with direct sun exposure and/or sweating. Avoid contact with animals near the fresh tattoo until fully healed. Monitor signs and symptoms of infection, including but not limited to intense pain, redness, worsening of swelling, tenderness of the procedure site,

red streaks going from the procedure site towards the heart, fever, pus draining, firm bumps, excessive bleeding, chills, or sweats. Seek medical attention if you experience severe symptoms or pain that lasts for more than a few days.
