So, how can you make sure that new tattoo is something you don’t end up regretting? Follow these steps while your new tattoo heals.
When you get home: Remove bandage within 1 - 2 hours after getting your tattoo. Do not re-bandage. Your tattoo needs to breathe, just like an open wound. Wash your tattoo with an anti-bacterial liquid soap. Be gentle, do not use a washcloth or anything that will exfoliate your tattoo. Only use your hands. Gently pat your tattoo dry with a paper towel. Do not rub, or use a fabric with a rough surface.
Always wash your hands before touching your tattoo!
The first 3-4 days: apply 3-5 times daily TIGER SPIT TATTOO BALM on your tattoo. Always use clean hands and do not place your fingers back into the ointment after touching your tattoo. Make sure to rub TIGER SPIT TATTOO BALM in so that it is not shiny, or greasy– you want the thinnest amount possible.
A 15 days process for a lifetime artwork on your skin!
On the first night, you may want to wrap your tattoo in saran wrap to prevent sticking to your bedding. Do not use any cloth bandages or pads, as the fibers of this material can adhere to your open tattoo and hinder the healing process. Wear clean, soft clothing over your tattoo for the first 2 weeks– nothing abrasive or irritating. On the 3rd or 4th day your tattoo will begin to peel. This is normal! Do not peal the skin. Keep using TIGER SPIT TATTOO BALM for minimum 2 weeks, 3-5 times daily.
