  • Please wait 6-8 weeks for full healing of the tattoo before booking the touch-up session.
  • A $25 set-up fee is charged for all touch-ups.

G. Tattoo Aftercare

  • Remove bandage after 4-6 hours, or leave on overnight if it feels secure. If removing the bandage on the first night, the tattoo might stick to or stain bedsheets. Maintain clean bedding throughout the healing process.

  • After removing the bandage, immediately wash the tattoo with warm water and unscented soap.

Process for washing a fresh tattoo:

  1. Carefully remove bandage
  2. Make lather in your hands with soap and water
  3. Gently clean tattoo using a circular motion until all ointment, blood and fluid are removed
  4. Rinse the tattoo and repeat once more, until the skin is clean
  5. Pat dry with a clean paper towel
  • Only use clean hands to wash your new tattoo. No washcloths, towels, sponges or loofahs.
  • Apply Eucerin’s Aquaphor healing ointment once the tattoo dry.
  • Apply a thin layer of ointment onto the tattoo twice a day for the first 3-4 days then switch to a lighter non-scented lotion for the remainder of the healing process.
  • Fresh tattoos may weep during the first couple of days; this can be patted off with a dry paper towel.
  • Wash once a day in the shower, pat dry and apply lotion until completely healed. Usually 2-3 weeks
  • Do not scratch your healing tattoo. You risk damaging it permanently by picking or scratching at a new tattoo.
