TATTOO Aftercare Instructions
As a retailer of Pride Aftercare – the best aftercare on the market, we highly suggest
you purchase Pride to help heal your tattoo.
*If you do not buy aftercare, we suggest Hydrocortisone cream or Aquafor.

Remove your bandage after 1-2 hours and wash with a gentle soap.  
Use light finger pressure to wash your tattoo until debris and blood is washed away.  Do not use anything but your
clean fingertips and gentle soap to wash with.  Rinse soap off and pat it dry with a towel.  Repeat 3x per day.
Do Not Re-bandage! Do not pick the scabs from your tattoo!  Apply a dime-sized drop or so of lotion.  Gently rub
lotion in until it is gone from sight, repeat after each wash and dry.  Use lotion until fully healed (30 days in most
cases).  Full healing has occurred when your skin is no longer reflective.
No direct sun or tanning for 2-4 weeks! No swimming for 2-4 weeks!

Please consult a physician as appropriate at the first sign of infection.

a warm soak.

cup for 5-10 seconds in a microwave.

Careful not to burn yourself!!!

slight pressure until the cotton ball is cold. This should take between 5-
10 minutes. After the warm soak, gently dab the pierced area with a
cotton swab to remove any debris left on the jewelry.

*At night, it is recommended that you perform a warm soak
to the piercing area as your 3rd cleaning of the day.
