Tattoo Aftercare


Before you leave the shop, we will wrap your tattoo with plastic wrap to protect your new tattoo from bacteria and dehydration.

Leave the wrap in place for around an hour and then take a shower, being sure to wash your tattoo well (no washcloth). Dry your tattoo by patting it dry; do not rub.

Apply a thin layer of A&D ointment or petroleum jelly, and then wrap the tattoo with plastic wrap.

Remove the plastic wrap every three hours; wash your tattoo thoroughly and apply more ointment before re-wrapping your tattoo.

Continue this process for the next three-four days and your tattoo should be nearly healed after a week.
