Congratulations on your new tattoo!

All bodies are unique, and some people can take longer to heal, so please be patient, stay healthy and be gentle with your tattoo at all times.

Cleaning Instructions:

After the tattoo is completed, your artist applied an ointment to your tattoo and covered it a dry-loc pad and/or plastic wrap. This covering is to be removed as soon as you arrive home (no more than 2-3 hours after applied).

To clean your tattoo:

  1. Wash your hands

  2. Remove the bandage from your new tattoo

  3. Gently rinse the tattoo with warm water and very carefully wash the tattoo with antibacterial hand soap. Paying special attention to any bloodspots. Do not use a washcloth!!!

  4. Pat dry with clean paper towels, don't use a towel and don't re-bandage. Once it's off, leave it off.

  5. Apply a thin layer of aftercare ointment. We recommend Aquaphor or Hustle Butter. This thin layer should be only enough to make it shiny; this gives the tattoo a protective barrier.

Repeat steps 3 thru 5 after washing your hands and washing the old ointment off the tattoo as many times as necessary throughout the day to keep the tattoo shiny for the next 2-5 weeks.​

***Don't submerge underwater for at least two weeks***

Avoid direct sunlight and tanning for at least two weeks. After the tattoo is completely healed, you may apply sunscreen to the area in order to tan or have extended exposure to the sun. This keeps the color of your tattoo brighter. We recommend a minimum of SPF 50 or higher***

Aftercare: FAQ


  1. Remove the Saniderm after 5 days. 3 days minimum.
