Please leave the bandage on for 3 days. This bandage can be left on for up to 7 days according to the manufacture however we have had best results with 3 days for healing tattoos so we recommend 3 days. It is designed to work with the body’s natural healing fluids so there will be fluid build up under the bandage. Do not be alarmed this is normal. We recommend to remove the bandage while in the shower as they come off much better this way. When the bandage is removed gently wash tattoo with warm water and clean hands while in the shower, without soap or a cloth.
When you get out of the shower pat the tattoo area dry with a clean paper towel and let it dry air dry. In a few days the tattoo may start to get itchy this is the time to apply a very small amount of aftercare lotion. You want to apply only enough to make it shine. Your tattoo must be able to breath so do not over apply this lotion. Once or twice a day is plenty.

A Few Notes On What Not To Do
DO NOT – Listen to your friends who think they have the perfect healing tips for your new tattoo. Even if they are tattooed every Tattoo Artist works a little different and is best suited to tell you how their work heals based on past experience.
DO NOT – Go swimming in a pool , soak in a hot tub, hang out in the lake or go swimming in the ocean. All of these can lead to a nasty infection.
DO NOT- Let your healing tattoo come in contact with any gym equipment.
100% of all gym equipment tested, showed positive for fecal mater and multiple other bacteria.
This too will lead to a nasty infection.
DO NOT- Pick, or scratch during the healing process.
DO NOT touch your tattoo with dirty hands and do not let your friends touch your tattoo during the healing process. Avoid contact with Pets
