Please follow the steps below to ensure the easiest and fastest healing process. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ​email me.

Second skin bandages are used by our resident artists, unless an allergy has been pre-disclosed. This bandage should be ​left on for a minimum of 24 hours, but can be left on for 2-3 days.

Leaving the bandage on for longer can help to speed up the healing process and protect the tattoo during the first few ​days of healing. It is normal to see blood, plasma and leftover ink under the bandage.

  • When you are ready to remove your bandage, please do so in the shower. Wash your hands before starting this ​process.
  • Run warm water over the bandage and slowly remove it. If you can stretch or tighten the skin, this will help removal as ​well. Slight irritation may occur under the bandage if removed from an area of sensitive skin, but should not cause a ​problem to the healing of the tattoo.
  • Once the bandage is removed, wash the tattoo well with warm water and an unscented soap. Fragrances in soap can ​irritate a healing tattoo, so please use unscented soap for the entirety of the healing process. A healing tattoo should be ​washed every day for the first few days, or if it gets dirty or sweaty. An unscented Dove bar is an ideal soap to use.
  • After you have washed the tattoo, pat it dry with a clean towel (or paper towel).
  • For the first few days of healing (once the bandage has been removed) do not use any moisturizers or creams on the ​healing tattoo. Allowing your body a few days to start the healing process without interfering with moisturizer or tattoo ​cream can drastically improve the healing process. You should still continue to wash and dry your tattoo during this ​time.
  • After a few days of dry healing your tattoo, use a small amount of unscented water based moisturizer or tattoo cream to ​soothe the tattoo when it is particularly dry or itchy. Be sure not to over-moisturize, as this can prolong the healing ​process. I like Cetaphil, Lubriderm or Hustle Butter

While you have a healing tattoo, please keep the following in mind:

  • Do not completely submerge the tattoo in water. This includes pools, hot tubs, bathtubs, lakes, and oceans.
  • Be careful to limit sun exposure. Sunscreen should not be used on fresh tattoos, so be mindful to cover your tattoo with ​clothing if you are going to be out in the sun. A sunburn can do serious damage to a healing tattoo.
  • Do not scratch at or pick at your tattoo. Some scabbing and flaking is completely normal while your tattoo heals. ​Itchiness is completely normal, and can be soothed with a small amount of unscented moisturizer.
  • If a tattoo gets dirty during the day (from sweat during a workout, you spill food on it, a dog licks it, etc) make sure to ​wash the tattoo immediately after, following the instructions above
  • if you are concerned about infection during the healing process please seek medical attention.
