Tattoo Aftercare with Bacitracin

  1. Do not touch Tattoo without washing hands with antibacterial soap. 
  2. Remove bandage after 1 hour and wash surface of tattoo with antibacterial soap containing no color or perfumes. Use a wash cloth and be abrasive enough to remove any blood or body fluids from the surface, this will speed the healing process and prevent possible scabbing.  Only use the wash cloth during the initial scrub done an hour after your tattoo.  From that point on just use your hand when washing throughout the whole healing process. (Directions may not apply to clients on bloodthiners, or that have a diagnosis of diabetes or blood disorder. Ask your Artist for more information.)
  3. Apply a very small amount of Bacitracin (that we supply free of charge). Or Emu Oil (prices vary) Massage into tattoo until shiny surface disappears. Note: Overuse of any ointment (bacitracin) will cause the ink to rise to the surface clogging the pores, resulting in a faded tattoo.  Use ointment as needed, no more than 3 times a day for 3 days.  Remember, less is better.  Your body will heal itself.  Topicals are comforting agents that should only be used when needed to hydrate the area.   Note: Overuse of ointment may cause skin irritation, such as pimples on and around the tattoo.  (Anyone with Ointment allergies should switch to our All Natural line of Emu Oil Tattoo Products.)  (We also highly recommend Aquaphor that can be purchased at any pharmacy)
  4. After 3 days of ointment or oil, switch to color and sent free lotion i.e... Lubriderm, Cruel etc... Use lotion until dry skin is gone.  DO NOT pick dry skin or itch tattoo while healing. Note: This will leave holes in your tattoo and will result in touch up @ your expense. 
  5. During your healing process, showers are fine. DO NOT soak in bathtub, hot tub, sauna, go swimming or tanning. Average healing time is 2 weeks, this will vary due to age, health, if your tattoo is color or black and grey and location of the tattoo.  

Note: It is very important to ask your artist, if you have any questions. NOT your friends.

Tattoos - Apply Emu Oil after new artwork is  cleaned to relieve discomfort and reduce inflammation and redness.  Emu Oil will help set colors and reduce plasma oozing.  Use 2 - 3 times daily on clean skin.

Piercing - Gently massage one drop of Emu Oil around the opening(s) of the piercing with clean finger 2 - 3 times daily on clean skin.

Stretching - Apply Emu Oil daily to clean area 2 weeks prior to streatching to help keep skin moist and pliable.  Emu Oil will help strengthen skin to prevent tears and blowouts.  Apply a drop of Emu Oil on new jewelry before insertion of larger gauge to ease glide.
