Tattoo Aftercare

Different tattoos require different aftercare depending on the location and stage of the Art’s completion.
Every Tattoo Artist has their own Aftercare Procedure – so what WE are outlining here is somewhat basic.
When in doubt, one should always consult with a PROFESSIONAL Tattooer. Preferably the one who did the piece.

The SSS Tattoo Aftercare is as follows:

1. Pear’s Transparent Soap is the brand we recommend for washing your tattoo. Your regular soap is fine too – so long as your tattoo doesn’t get irritated.
The most important thing is to keep your tattoo CLEAN and DRY. If you are going to be sweating, working, or dirty;  wash it with clean hands ASAP afterwards. Pat it dry. NO rubbing. NO friction

2. For moisturizing we recommend any unscented hand lotion (i.e.: Lubriderm, Curel, etc.)
Moisturizing is good but needs to be done SPARINGLY.  If your whole tattoo has been moisturized and your skin is dry enough that you can snap your fingers- that is perfect. (The tattoo should not be slimy or slippery after moisturizing.)
DO NOT moisturize immediately after showering or cleaning your tattoo. Ideally only moisturize it once or twice a day when it is dry.

3. No sun-tanning, swimming, hot-tubs, (or any kind of UV exposure or soaking in water) for 3 weeks after receiving your tattoo.

4. The healing stage:
You can expect the fresh tattoo to feel comparable to a ‘bruisy sunburn’ for up to a week. The tattoo can flake or scab which is fairly normal – the key when this happens is to cut back on moisturizing, the reason being that the flaky and/or scabby tissue needs to come off. When you moisturize that tissue, you prolong this stage of the process which increases your risk of infection. HOWEVER DO NOT PICK OR TRY TO PEEL THE SKIN OR SCAB. It will come off naturally.
