After returning home from getting your brand new piece of art, remove your bandage. Using your hands, (washclothes can harbor bacteria in their fibers and be abrasive to the fresh tattoo)along with lukewarm water use a liquid or foaming antibacterial soap, free of dyes or scents. Gently wash and rinse the tattoo and pat dry using a paper towel. Once again, do NOT use a hand or bath towel. Let your new tattoo breathe for a bit before applying a thin layer of H2Ocean Tattoo Aftercare, Aquaphor, Lubriderm or Aveeno- depending on personal preference. Do not use heavily scented lotions.
