The aftercare of your tattoo is extremely important.  The approximate healing time is two-four (2-4) weeks.  You will need H2Ocean Aquatat Tattoo Ointment, H2Ocean Blue Green Foam soap, and mild skin lotion.

1.  Keep your tattoo bandaged for approximately two (2) hours. 

2. Carefully remove the bandage and wash with H2Ocean Blue Green Foam soap and cool water.  

3. Pat dry the area and apply H2Ocean Aquatat Tattoo Ointment.  Use only a thin coating and continue to re-apply the ointment for two to four (2-4) times daily for three to five (3-5) days.  Do NOT rebandage the tattoo, as it can cause damage to your tattoo.

Avoid direct sunlight, salt or chlorine water, and hot tubs.  It is OK to shower but do not take a bath, as you do not want to soak your tattoo until it is completely healed. Sometimes mild scabbing can occur, do not pick at the scab or attempt to wash it off.  Apply a mild skin lotion to keep flaky skin to a minimum.  

Please contact City Roots Tattoo Gallery for any questions.  Seek medical attention if your tattoo becomes infected or painful, or if you develop a fever shortly after receiving your tattoo.
