Now you're tattooed! What's next?
A tattoo isn’t completed until it is fully healed. Tattoos are an investment and require active participation on your part.
You will need:
Make sure to dilute antibacterial soap such as Dial or Softsoap (or any mild white / clear soap that contains no dyes, perfumes or fragrances) with water.
Unscented white lotion such as Lubriderm, Aveeno or Jergens. Cocoa butter lotion may be used, but is the only exception to the unscented rule.
Healing tattoos has a lot to do with common sense. Listen to your body and act accordingly. There is nothing worse than messing up a great tattoo with poor care.
