Remove your bandage in about an hour. Do not re-bandage your tattoo! Cleanse it with antibacterial soap and water, rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Apply a small amount of ointment and rub in well. Repeat this process 2-4 times daily for 3-5 days or until tattoo peels. Do not share ointment with anyone else! After tattoo peels, follow the same instructions for cleaning and apply unscented/ dye-free lotion instead of ointment 1-3 times daily for about 2 weeks. Do not go into hot tubs, swimming pools or lakes during healing process. They can fade your tattoo and cause infection! New Tattoos peel, itch and can scab but be careful not to pick or scratch them because you can transfer bacteria from under your fingernails to the tattoo and cause infection and light spots after healing ends. Average heal time for a new tattoo can take 2-4 weeks depending on the individual and placement on the body. If you experience excessive redness, itching, swelling, pain, allergic reaction, or infection please contact us and your personal physician. Take good care of your new body art and apply sun block during the summer to help keep it looking great for years to come. If you have any questions about the healing process please call us at (303) 230-TAT2 (8282).
CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSIDE THE MOUTHRinse mouth with cleaning solution for 30 seconds after meals and at bedtime (4-5 times daily) during the entire healing period. Cleaning too often or with too strong a rinse can cause discoloration and irritation of your mouth and piercing.
CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE EXTERIOR OF LABRET (CHEEK AND LIP) PIERCINGSSoak in saline solution and/or wash in mild, fragrance-free liquid soap-preferably anti-microbial or germicidal. WASH your hands thoroughly prior to cleaning or touching your piercing for any reason. SALINE soak at least two to three times daily. Simply soak directly in a cup of warm saline solution for five to ten minutes. For certain placements it may be easier to apply using clean gauze saturated with saline solution. A brief rinse afterward will remove any residue. SOAP no more than once or twice a day. While showering, lather up a pearl size drop of the soap to clean the jewelry and the piercing. Leave the cleanser on the piercing no more than thirty seconds. RINSE thoroughly to remove all traces of the soap from the piercing. It is not necessary to rotate the jewelry through the piercing. DRY by gently patting with clean, disposable paper products. Cloth towels can harbor bacteria and snag on jewelry, causing injury.
WHAT IS NORMAL?For the first three to five days: significant swelling, light bleeding, bruising, and/or tenderness. After that: Some swelling, light secretion of a whitish yellow fluid (not pus). A piercing may seem healed before the healing process is complete. This is because they heal from the outside in, and although it feels fine, the tissue remains fragile on the inside. Be patient, and keep cleaning throughout the entire healing period. Even healed piercings can shrink or close in minutes after having been there for years! This varies from person to person; if you like your piercing, keep jewelry in-do not leave the hole empty.
