FAQ's & AFTERCARE
TATTOO AFTERCARE STEPS:
1. Remove bandage & wash area with soap and water. ( We recommend GOLD DIAL ANTIBACTERIAL)
2. PAT dry with towel. . No luffas/wash cloths should be used.
3. Once dry apply a very very small amount of healing ointment. (We recommend Aquaphor or tattoo salve). over use of ointment will cause the tattoo to suffocate.

IN SHOWER: showers are preferred over baths throughout healing avoid piercing when using any soaps,scrubs etc rinse thoroughly at the end of shower
Make sure your clothing and bedding is new/changed each day throughout healing to reduce risk of infection
Wear comfortable, breathable clothing that protects but allows air flow day and night (cotton)
• WHAT IS NORMAL? •
Scabbing - fluid (not pus) that will form scab/crust after showers or cleaning
dryness - itchiness (area may feel tight or "stuck" throughout healing, this is normal DO NOT force jewelry to move)You may apply warm water compress as needed for dryness or itchiness.
Even healed piercings, years later will close if jewelry is left out, so if you want to keep your piercing, keep jewelry in it!
