Tattoo Aftercare

·   Leave the tattoo bandaged for a minimum of 2 hours.

·   Gently remove bandage under warm running water to reduce the risk of damaging the tattoo.

·   Once bandage is removed, using an unscented soap (Dial Soap), wash the tattoo off well with your hand and warm soapy water.

·   When done washing the tattoo, gently pat the tattoo dry with a clean towel or paper towel and allow the tattoo to air dry for about 5-10 minutes.

·   Apply lotion:  the suggested aftercare product provided at 6 Skulls 4-6 times a day.

·   The lotion can be applied to the tattoo daily for about 10-14 days or until the tattoo is finished peeling.

·   Once bandage is completely removed DO NOT re-bandage the tattoo.

·   NO working out for at least 48 hours! It’s better if you wait until your tattoo is completely healed.

·   DO NOT pick or scratch tattoo while it is peeling.

·   DO NOT soak the tattoo for 3 weeks. No swimming, baths, hot tubs or saunas for 3 weeks.

·   NO shaving or waxing the area until tattoo is completely healed.

·   DO NOT apply alcohol, vaseline, petroleum jelly or sun block to the fresh tattoo.

·   NO direct sunlight on tattoo for the first 3 weeks. Once it is healed, if you go out in the sun, use a high SPF sun block.

·   DO NOT listen to your friends or so-called tattoo experts. If you have questions, call/text/email or visit the artist that did your tattoo!!

·   First 3 days, some ink can come out with plasma. It’s nothing to worry about but always wear clean shirts and sleep on clean sheets.

·   Once you leave the tattoo studio,  proper care of your tattoo is your responsibility.

·   Consult a health care professional at the first sign of infection.
