How To Care For A New Tattoo
Leave your bandage on overnight. In the morning, take the bandage off in the shower. Wash your tattoo with soap, rinse well, pat dry and let air dry for 10 minutes or so before applying A&D vitamin ointment (provided). You only need a very thin layer of ointment. If your tattoo looks shiny you have applied too much. Tattoo should be washed, and ointment should be applied twice a day for the first 3-5 days. It will take approximately 2 weeks for the tattoo to heal completely. Dry skin and itchiness is a natural part of the healing process.
Avoid submerging tattoo in water (bath, swimming, etc) during this time.
