After your tattoo artist places the bandage on your new tattoo, the bandage should stay on for five (5) to seven (7) days or as per artist’s recommendation.
NOTE: It is normal for blood and fluids to bubble up under the bandage.
Removing your bandage:
● The best way to remove the bandage is to find an edge and pull it towards the direction of hair growth. We do not recommend pulling it upward as it can be painful.
● We suggest removing the bandage while taking a warm shower so the steam and water will loosen the adhesive and make it easier to pull.
● After the bandage is removed, wash the area with mild soap and water, then pat dry with a clean towel.
Note: DO NOT USE washcloths, loofah, or sponge to clean your tattoo. These can irritate your new tattoo and may harbor bacteria.
● Always use UNSCENTED lotion to keep your tattoo moisturized for the rest of the healing process.
