Leave the bandage on for 48 hours. It’s okay if it comes off on its own prior to 48 hours. When removing the bandage, it is best to peel it down along the tattoo instead of pulling it straight up. It is also easier to remove in the shower, if you let water run underneath the edge as you peel it away
Wash the tattoo well with liquid antibacterial soap and water. Pat dry with a clean towel
Apply a good quality fragrance free moisturizer 4-5 times daily for 7-10 days
In a few days the tattoo may begin to peel like a sunburn, this is normal. Do not pick or scratch the tattoo
