  1. my recent routine to customers has been:

    -take bandage off 1-2 hours after getting tattooed

    -wash with warm/hot water and antibacterial soap to open up the pores and let out excess blood/plasma, then rinse with a cool/cold water to close the pores

    -let air dry then apply THIN layer of aquaphor or preferred ointment (a&d, tattoo goo, h2ocean...whatever works for ya)

    I dont recommend re-covering/bandaging as the tattoo tends to be swollen/irritated after and with the warmth/blood/plasma could potentially be a bacteria breeding ground.....but everyone has their way!

  2. hello all, glad to be a part of this forum and hope to gain some new online friends and learn as much as possible! looks like a great place for artists as well as collectors to meet and look forward to the future
