546 Tattoo Studio - After Care
Leave your bandage on your new tattoo for 30 min. after leaving the studio
Wash hands thoroughly before touching your new tattoo. This will help prevent infection. *NEVER TOUCH YOUR NEW TATTOO WITH DIRTY HANDS. NEVER LET ANYONE ELSE TOUCH YOUR NEW TATTOO.
Wash your new tattoo with antibacterial soap without fragrance. (Such as "Dial Gold" bar soap) Use only your clean hands to wash it. *NEVER USE WASHCLOTHS, ETC.
Rinse your tattoo completely. *If your tattoo feels "slimy" wash it again.
Pat your new tattoo dry then apply a THIN layer of ointment over the tattooed area (Bacitracin/A&D)
*NO SWIMMING, BATHS, HOT TUBS, OR SOAKING YOUR NEW TATTOO IN ANY WAY. This can and more than likely will cause a nasty, possibly severe infection.
*NEVER SCRATCH, PICK, OR RUB YOUR NEW TATTOO. If it itches, smack it lightly. Your tattoo will also peel...this is normal.
*NO SUN EXPOSURE (THIS INCLUDES TANNING BEDS) Use a sunblock of SPF50 or higher to prevent damage to the pigments. This should ONLY be done after the tattoo is COMPLETELY healed.
Allow 2-4 weeks for the total healing process. At this time you may contact your original artist and set up an appointment if any touch-up work is needed.
If you have any questions or concerns of any kind, Please feel free to contact us. We will be more than willing to assist you. *Calling the studio will get the fastest response 567-424-6200
