Sacred Eagle  Tattoo Care

 

Keep bandage on for at least 2 hours.

12 hours is recommended.

DON'T EVER USE SARAN WRAP...IT WILL BREED BACTERIA!!!

Carefully wash with soap and water.

Pat dry, never rub.

Apply a very light coat of ointment, so that it soaks right in.

Do Not over apply ointment.

Use ointment 2-3 times a day until all scabs are gone.

This may take 1-2 weeks.

BACITRACIN OR A&D OINTMENT.

Do not use triple or neosporin, they are too strong and can cause allergic reactions.

DO NOT PICK OR SCRATCH.

Let all scabs come off by themselves.

No swimming until all scabs are gone.

Yes, you can shower, but don't soak tattoo.

Excess water will make the scabs soft and you will lose color.

NO SUN FOR 30 DAYS

After use sunblock spf 45 or higher.

When all scabs are gone you can use skin care lotion.

This speeds the next stage, Lubriderm works great.

 

DON'T WORRY IF:

A clear fluid drains.

The tattoo is sore and scabs form.

It bruises or is red and puffy.

The color looks strange at first.

-these are all normal-

 

IF YOU GET A RASH, STOP USING OINTMENT AND CALL!
