Cosmetic Tattoo Aftercare Instructions

  • Always Wash your hands thoroughly before touching the tattooed area.
  • Clean by gently rinsing with lukewarm water and a fragrant free dye free soap. Then thoroughly rinse followed by patting dry with a disposable paper towel as needed.
  • Apply a very small amount of fragrant free dye free lotion when the tattoo becomes dry. A small amount of Vitamin E is a good option. I also have Tina Davis Aftercare healing gel available for purchase in the shop.
  • DO NOT USENeosporin, ointments, peroxide, or alcohol based products.
  • DO NOT pick or scratch at the dry skin and let it fall off naturally.
  • Picking can cause scarring and premature loss of pigment.
  • IMPORTANT: Once the flakes have fallen off, a shiny layer of healing skin will completely cover the hair strokes. It will appear as though the eyebrows are gone. Within 1-2 weeks, the hair strokes will slowly reappear at a lighter shade as your skin regenerates.
  • DO NOT apply make-up to the tattooed area for the first 2 weeks. Chemicals of any kind may interfere with the healing and color of your tattoo.
  • No facials, swimming or soaking the tattoo while it is healing.
  • Do not dye or tweeze the area during healing.
  • Avoid blowing your nose during lip procedures to avoid staph infection​.
  • Blot treated area with a tissue.
  • Apply thin layer of the product with a cotton swab 3 times per day for 3 days.
  • Gently wash the area with a non-scented soap or cleanser morning and night for 7 days
  • Do not pick, scratch, or irritate the tattoo.
  • Avoid hot tubs, steam rooms, pools, long hot showers, sweaty exercise.
  • Avoid direct sunlight or tanning beds for 2 weeks.
  • Avoid putting makeup on the area for the first week.
  • Avoid facials, chemical peels, or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
