THINKING TREE'S AFTERCARE
Caring for your new tattoo is pretty straight forward, and every artist will have slightly different advice. In most cases, the goal is simple – speed up healing and prevent infection. For a more in depth guide, see my tips below.
LEAVE YOUR SPECIAL TATU DERM’S BANDAGE ON FOR A MINIMUM OF 24 HOURS: Leave your bandage on for a minimum of 24 hours and no longer than 36 hours. Clean tattoo with warm watered paper towel and pat dry with clean paper towel. Do not soak your tattoo in water, showers are fine.
APPLY A THIN FILM OF GIVEN VITAMINS A&D OINTMENT : 3 times per day for 2 weeks, clean tattoo before each application. Always wash your hands before touching your tattoo!
DO NOT PICK OR SCRATCH ANY SCABBING: allow it to come off naturally. Scabbing usually flakes off in 7-10 days. Wear clean, loose clothing to protect tattoo while healing.
DO NOT: expose healing tattoo to sun, swimming, hot tub, sauna, unclean conditions, irritating clothing, extreme exercises, bungee jumping, karate, dungeon hunting, pillaging, fencing, boogie-woogie or anything that may hinder healing.
ONCE TATTOO IS HEALED: Use high SPF sunblock when exposed to the sun. So you can continue on your silly adventures, salsa, bow hunting, riding a laser-eyed panther, boogie-woogie, or whatever floats your goat, so yeah!.
