Here are a few things you should do to help your new tattoo heal.

  1. Leave the bandage on for a few hours.
  2. Wash your new tattoo with warm soap and water.
  3. Apply a very small amount of Curel Fragrance-Free lotion - massage in 2-3 times per day, or as needed.
  4. keep your new tattoo out of the ocean/pools/hot tubs/the sun, etc.
  5. Do not use a friends' alternative method to heal your new tattoo - for example, do not use Vaseline, baby oil, vitamin E, butter, etc.
  6. Do not pick at your new tattoo.
  7. Your new tattoo will be healed anywhere from 4 days to 2 weeks, some flaking will occur during this time. This is normal.
  8. For any questions please feel free to call Sacred Tattoo or stop by. Happy Healing!
