It's up to you to take care of your fresh tattoo. This begins by washing it 3x a day with a non-scented anti-bacterial soap and hot water. Do not use a washcloth or anything else abrasive, your hand is the best tool. Then, after allowing it to dry for 10 minutes, apply a light layer of Aquaphor. Afterecare is very important because your artist can not be responsible for infections or problems if you're not taking proper care of your tattoo. An awesome tattoo can turn into a disaster if you dont follow through with your aftercare.
Scabbing and peeling will begin within a few days; this is normal. If excessive scabbing occurs use A&D vitamin enriched ointment on that area. Do not use Neosporin as it will pull the ink out and cause little red bumps. You will also notice itching- please do not pick or scratch at your tattoo. Avoid the sun and swimming for up to 10 days after getting your tattoo. After the healing process has ended you can use a aloe vera lotion on your tattoo.
