Tattoo Aftercare

Leave the bandage on for 6-24 hours.

After removing the bandage, wash thoroughly with mild soap and warm water. A final rinse with ice cold water will seal the tattoo and prevent it from weeping etc. Do not re-bandage! After 24-36 hours wash the tattoo again, allow 2-3 hours to air dry and then apply a mild, unscented lotion such as Lubriderm or Aveno. Apply lotion sparingly 1-2 times daily, work the lotion into the tattoo thoroughly and remove any excess gently. Continue until the tattoo is healed. Avoid swimming, hot tubs, suntanning, picking, scratching etc until your tattoo is fully healed. Approx 1 1/2- 2 weeks.

If you have ANY questions or concerns please contact us directly at the URGE 3 Tattooing.

Wash tattoo with clean hands, warm water and mild hand soap.

Apply a thin layer of non-scented, non-coloured hand lotion (A+D ointment or aquaphor) from one week to one month, depending on the size of the tattoo. (Lubriderm or Aveno)

Repeat the process morning and night, or after any time your tattoo was exposed to dirt, heavy sweating, or any outside elements.

No swimming, soaking or suntanning for at least 3 weeks. This does not mean you can’t take a shower, this means you can’t soak, do not pick or scratch a tattoo.
