Have questions about your new ink?

New Ink FAQ

How long should I keep the bandage on my new ink?
Keep the bandage on the tattoo for at least two hours after the work is complete (or longer, depending on the tattoo artist’s instructions). Remove the bandage very carefully and throw it away. This allows your skin to breathe and begin the healing process. Do not re-bandage the tattoo.
How should I care for my new ink after I take the bandage off?
Put a drop of mild antibiotic soap on your hand and lightly wash the tattoo. Gently pat it dry with a washcloth (not a paper towel) taking care not to rub it. Dab an over-the-counter water- or petroleum-based ointment on the cleaned area. Do not use an ointment that contains zinc as it may cause an adverse reaction. Continue to lightly apply antibiotic ointment to your tattooed skin for the first few days, then switch to a plain skin lotion that is free of dye, perfume, lanolin, Vitamin E, aloe or alcohol.Expose your healing skin to air as much as possible but avoid prolonged exposure to the sun. Avoid getting a lot of water on your new tattoo – showers are OK, but no swimming or baths for a few weeks.
It's starting to itch! What do I do?
Resist scratching the skin or picking at scabs, no matter how much it itches. Itching means that it’s healing. Wear clean, loose and comfortable clothing over the tattooed area. Your skin should heal completely in about two weeks. Also, apply sunblock to your tattoo after it has healed, to help prevent burns and fading.
Something's not right with my new ink, what do I do?
If, after getting your new tattoo, you experience extreme swelling, unbearable itching, excruciating pain, fever, a rash or any other unusual symptoms that may indicate infection, allergic reaction or other serious complication, contact a doctor immediately.
How long Will it take to heal?
All tattoos heal at different rates. Diet, rest, and stress all have an effect on how quickly your tattoo will heal. Your tattoo will be applied using sterile equipment and sanitary practices. It will be your responsibility to care for it afterward. The number-one tip for making sure your give your tattoo the best care is to listen to what your artist tells you. They should emphasize the importance of aftercare. Artists also have a wealth of experience with tattoo healing and customer concerns, so they will be able to answer all your questions. Tattoo aftercare requires your special attention and commitment. Improper aftercare will result in an infected, or a badly healed tattoo. Avoid this by really committing yourself to the care of your tattoo so you can enjoy it for years to come.
What Should I expect while I am healing?
During the days following getting tattooed, you can expect to see you tattoo weep. Your body is undergoing a normal healing process, and it causes the tattoo to discharge fluid in the same color as your tattoo. It is best to care for the tattoo by not letting it get wet for long periods of time and preventing it from rubbing against clothes or shoes. Do not sleep on your tattoo. You want to get your tattoo moisturized, but be sure to not go overboard with lubrication. After the first few days, you will begin to notice a thin layer of skin peel or flake away from the entire tattoo. Much like sunburnt skin, this is completely natural in the healing process. Keep it moisturized with basic unscented lotions, and avoid touching it as much as possible. Your tattoo is still very sensitive at this time. Do not pick at any scabs because you could end up with holes in your tattoo.Pay attention and be careful with your tattoo for the weeks following getting it. Do not soak you tattoo in any water, pools, or hot tubs. Saunas are also not recommended during the healing time. You can shower normally because your tattoo will need to be cleaned regularly, but do not use very hot water, or keep it wet for a long time. Your tattoo’s scab will be falling off. However, just because your scabs are gone, does not mean your tattoo is done healing yet. It requires an extra couple days after all the scabs have fallen to complete the healing process. The number-one tip for making sure your give your tattoo the best care is to listen to what your artist tells you. They should emphasize the importance of aftercare. Artists also have a wealth of experience with tattoo healing and customer concerns, so they will be able to answer all your questions. Tattoo aftercare requires your special attention and commitment. Improper aftercare will result in an infected, or a badly healed tattoo. Avoid this by really committing yourself to the care of your tattoo so you can enjoy it for years to come.
