Always wash your hands before touching your new tattoo.

  • Please, leave your bandage on overnight and no longer than 24 hours.
  • Take off bandage in shower.
  • Rinse your new tattoo with warm soapy water.
  • Gently lather it with your hands, using a non-fragrance, unscented soap.
  • We recommend Dr. Bronners liquid soap .
  • Lather tattoo with your hands until all the "icky gooey stuff" is gone.
  • Rinse thoroughly.
  • Use a clean towel to pat dry area.
  • When you pat dry your tattoo, it will still feel slightly moist.
  • Wait about ten to fifteen minutes until it is dry.
  • Wash your hands and apply a small amount of Out@sea or Curel lotion to your tattoo.
  • Massage in and wipe off excess.
  • Your tattoo should feel like the rest of your skin
  • If it feels wetter, remove excess lotion, if it feels dryer, apply lotion


We recommend using Out to Sea Tattoo Lotion or Curel lotion "original formula".
