Tattoo Care

After one hour: Remove bandages (if gauze sticks to skin, wet the area with luke warm water and then remove the gauze carefully).

Once the tattoo is exposed, wash carefully in warm water Gently applying antibacterial soap with fingers (never use a cloth) to remove all surface blood.

Pat dry with a clean paper towel and apply a thin layer of Tattoo Goo salve sparingly, repeat 3 times a day until completely healed.

After 3 days the tattoo may start to peel (this is normal like sunburn) and scab, do not pick or peel the skin away, let it fall off naturally during washing or application of Tattoo Goo.

Fresh skin will soon replace the dead skin.

Colours may appear to fade during this process but will return when healing is completed. Tattoo Goo will keep your tattoo from drying and the skin areas soft and moist. Always apply sparingly. Too much prevents the skin/tattoo from breathing and can cause leeching of the colour.

  • Do not rub, scratch or pick tattoo.
  • Do not expose the tattoo to direct sunlight, sun beds, swim or soak in sauna,
    steam bath or bath tub for two weeks.
  • Be sure clothing is clean, soft and loose-fitting.
  • Do not re-bandage tattoo.
  • Do not apply Vaseline, lanolin or petroleum based products.
  • Do not apply alcohol.
