Tattoo After-Care & Touch-Up Policy
1. After 1-3 hours, gently remove bandage. Do not re-bandage! Let the tattoo breath during the day
2. 3 times a day, until tattoo returns to pre-tattoo condition, wash your hands and then wash tattoo with warm
water & anti-bacterial soap. Pat dry with a disposable paper towel (not a cloth towel). Follow with
Skintegrity Hydrogel using a small bead and a thin covering over the tattooed area. We want it
moisturized and protected, but not suffocated. (or a light, fragrance-free moisturizer will work).
3. Each night for the 1st three nights, wrap with food service film (plain saran wrap, not press-n-seal). Wrap it
tight enough that it stays, but not so tight that it will cause decreased circulation.
4. Keep tattoo out of direct sunlight & tanning beds until tattoo is fully healed. (AT LEAST 14 days)
5. Do NOT soak tattoo in tub, sauna, hot tub, or go swimming until tattoo is fully healed. Showers are fine,
but keep water exposure limited.
6. DO NOT RUB, PICK, OR SCRATCH YOUR TATTOO!
7. Sun exposure over the years can and will fade your tattoo. This can be minimized by using a strong
sunscreen at least SPF 30.

In the case of neglect, your touch up will cost a min. of $30. Last, but not least, some tattoos (based on placement) are not touched up for free & are always a min. of $30.* *
