1

Your tattoo is covered with the bandage or plastic-wrap, leave it on for 2 hours.
2

Once exposed, wash your hands with an anti-bacterial soap (never touch a new tattoo with un-washed hands); wash the tattoo thoroughly but gently, using only your hand and a good anti-bacterial liquid soap. (There are many brands, just be sure it is anti-bacterial, clear and unscented.)
3

Do not re-bandage tattoo! Depending on the nature of your job, it may be necessary to wear clothing that will serve as a loose fitting bandage, but do not keep tattoo covered from fresh air.
4

For the first 10 days or so, apply a small amount of the unscented lotion or tattoo aftercare ointment (Lubriderm unscented, Tattoo Goo, etc.), 2-3 times a day. Use sparingly and rub it in like you would hand lotion, then blot off any excess with a tissue.
5

Never rub, scratch, or pick at tattoo. If a scab forms, let it fall off naturally, never pick at it!

Do not expose tattoo to direct sunlight or tanning beds for at least 2 weeks. After that, use at least SPF 50 or higher, or keep tattoo covered.

6

Do not swim, soak in bathtub or in sauna for at least 2 weeks. The sun, saltwater, and chlorine act like bleach and the result will be a faded or ruined tattoo.
7

Be sure that any clothes that touch your tattoo are clean and soft.
8

Healing time is usually one to three weeks, however this may vary.
9

To keep tattoo bright, apply a quality lotion from time to time.
