After recommended amount of time, please wash your hands throughly and then remove your bandage.
(Personally I find the best way to remove the second skin bandage is in the shower. DO NOT rip bandage off like a wax strip, let the water loosen it and gently pull it off.)
After removing the bandage wash the area lightly but thoroughly with unscented soap.
Be sure to clean off any excess ointment, blood and/or ink.
Pat dry with clean towel.
Repeat washing + drying morning and night.
After 2-3 days, when the tattoo becomes dry and itchy, begin to apply a thin layer of unscented moisturizer to your tattoo after washing and drying.
Do not over moisturize your tattoo, applying thick layers of moisturizer can suffocate the tattoo and cause an infection.
Do not scratch your healing tattoo.
Do not pick off any scabs - it will pull out the ink, let them fall off naturally.
Do not soak your healing tattoo in a pool, bath tub, hot tub, lake, puddle, toilet, swamp, ect... for at least 3-4 weeks.
Avoid direct sunlight and tanning the area for the first few months.
