Tattoo Afercare

Aftercare instructions 

The life of your tattoo depends on the care it receives in the first few days. Please follow our recommendations for the proper care of your tattoo.


(Aftercare instructions may vary artist-to-artist. This is a good point of reference, but if you have questions, always feel free to reach out to your tattoo artist.)

DAY 1-2:

After 1 hour:

1. Remove plastic or bandage and wipe ointment and plasma off with a moist paper towel. DO NOT RUB. Dried blood and ink may be removed with gentle washing (using your finger tips) with anti-bacterial/anti-microbial soap and water. DO NOT scratch or pick at the wound. Use a clean paper towel and pat dry. Once completely dried go to step 2.

2. Apply a thin layer of aftercare ointment such as Hustle Butter.  DO NOT use Neosporin, Lanolin, or any petroleum based product. Bandaging is NOT necessary. It is critical that you remove the fluid and keep the tattoo hydrated.

DAY 3-4:

Wash your tattoo twice a day using anti-bacterial/anti-microbial soap. Apply a thin coat of aftercare three times a day. 

DAY 5-15:

Apply an unscented body lotion as needed, If your tattoo itches, resist the urge to scratch. Remember, tattoos take 4+ weeks to heal.


DO NOT scratch, pick, or peel. DO NOT allow the tattoo to dry out.


DO NOT expose to direct sunlight.


NO swimming; soaking in tubs or Jacuzzi; NO saunas; NO tanning; NO skin to skin contact; NO Vaseline, Lanolin or Petroleum products; NO contact with people or pets; avoid contact sports. After showering, pat the tattoo dry with a paper towel and re-apply aftercare ointment or lotions according to healing stage.

All consultations and pricing must be done in person, at the shop. We do not give price quotes over the phone / online. We need to see you, along with what your idea is in person to give you a fair price quote!
