Aftercare for your new tattoo is the most important part of making sure your tattoo looks its best! Follow these simple instructions and you should have no problem getting through the healing process!

- Leave bandage on for at least 1 hour
-After removing bandage, gently wash with antibacterial soap and water then pat dry
