The best way to care for your tattoo is to listen to your artist and follow the directions!
At Sinning Angelz, we will apply a Tattoo Goo and clear wrap to protect your artwork at the end of each session. We would like for you to keep your tattoo covered for the first 24 hours – only removing it to wash the area and apply Tattoo Goo. Wash your new tattoo 3x a day with a mild cleanser, cool water, and your hand. Do not use washcloths or anything abrasive! Pat the area dry or let it air dry and apply Tattoo Goo – a thin layer will do. If you are still within the 24 hour period, apply more clear wrap before any fabrics touch your new tattoo.
To recap – LISTEN TO YOUR ARTIST – but generally…
Day 1 – wash 3x a day, apply Tattoo Goo, apply clear wrap
Day 2 – wash 3x a day, apply Tattoo Goo, keep exposed to air as much as possible
Day 3 – wash 3x a day, apply Tattoo Goo, keep exposed to air as much as possible
Days 4-10 – wash 2x a day, apply Tattoo Goo, wear clothes as usual IF and WHEN you healed over.
DO NOT PICK, SCRATCH, or RUB the newly inked skin. You should also avoid tight fabrics for as long as possible.
