Tattoo Aftercare

Aftercare for Your New Tattoo

Follow these steps while your new tattoo heals to help keep it looking fresh.

Additional Info

Take cool to lukewarm showers. Scalding hot water will not only hurt but may fade the ink. Wear a physical blocker sunscreen with at least 7% zinc oxide sunscreen during the daylight hours and/or cover it up.

If your tattoo scabs a bit or develops hard layers, don’t worry. It’s normal. But never pick scratch, or peel it. You could get an infection or remove the ink.

If you think your tattoo is infected, or isn’t healing properly, go see your doctor as soon as possible.
