Tattoo care instructions

The basics are to keep the new tattoo clean and moist. Your tattoo was wrapped up before you went home. And you are expected to keep that bandage on for at least three hours. Once that time period is over you should wash your hands and then remove the bandage. Wash the tattoo gently with antibacterial soap and water. Rinse it real good and pat dry. Here is the important part: put a LITTLE bit of hand lotion on it and RUB IT IN. Don't put a bunch on it. And rub it in. Repeat the washing procedure as often as you can. Don't pick at it.

Lip, labret, monroe, snakebites etc

Rinse your mouth out with alcohol free mouthwash once in the morning and once at night. Other than that you should rinse your mouth out with water after you eat, drink or smoke. For the outside of the piercing you should follow the facial care instructions. Avoid oral sex and kissing during the healing period.

facial, ear piercing

Wash your hands thoroughly first with antibacterial soap! apply ear care solution or saline wound wash to a cotton swab then to your piercing. Peel off all the crusty matter if there is any and then leave it alone.

​Navel, nipple

Wash your hands thoroughly first with antibacterial soap! Then lather up the piercing area and peel off any crusty matter that may have formed. Then rinse all the soap away. Pat dry with paper towel. After this you should leave the piercing alone and don't touch it.

Genital piercings

All genital piercings heal quickly. Wash your hands thoroughly first with antibacterial soap! Then lather up the piercing area and peel off any crusty matter. Then rinse all the soap away. Your best bet is the shower since washing these piercings in a public bathroom might draw stares.
