Anything with vitamin E in it. Webbers is good stuff it's like polysporin without the smelly. It has to be unscented.

Some people use Preperation H, too. Keeps it moisturised and keeps the swelling down! I used Prep H on one of my tattoos. No scabbing at all, good stuff.

By the way, you should be putting vitamin E gel/cream on it like 24 hours after the work is done. It should always be moist until it is fully healed!

1. As soon as you get home remove bandage, wipe off the ointment and oozing body fluid with a tissue.

DO NOT WASH

Water content of the Tattooed area is a major factor in the speed of healing.

KEEP DRY !

2. Apply a thin layer of A&D ointment, Bacitracin, or comparable product.

The biggest problem is not the selection of ointment ( all comparable ointments of this type will produce good healing ). Getting any ointment and using it as directed and having you follow these instructions is critical for promoting proper care and healing for your new Tattoo. This is more important than fretting over what type of ointment to purchase.

A&D ointment is the preferred product to use due to the fact that some people have an allergic reaction to the zinc and other ingredients in Bacitracin or Neosporin ointment. If you are not allergic to these products they are fine to use. Otherwise buy and use A&D ointment because it contains none of these allergic reaction causing ingredients.

BUY A&D OINTMENT IF AVAILABLE.

3. Wait 15 minutes and see if bubbles of fluid appear on the surface of the Tattooed area.

4. If they do, wipe of with a tissue and reapply ointment.

5. REPEAT THIS TILL NO MORE BUBBLES APPEAR ( 2 to 5 times ).

STOP AND READ STEP 1 TO 5 AGAIN.

THE BETTER YOU CARE FOR YOUR NEW TATTOO

IMMEDIATELY AFTER GETTING IT

THE BETTER IT WILL TURN OUT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE !

IT IS CRITICAL TO REMOVE FLUID FROM THE TATTOO AND KEEP MOIST DURING THE FIRST FEW HOURS AFTER GETTING YOUR TATTOO.

You can use your CLEAN finger tips to apply the ointment.

DO NOT BANDAGE.

When oozing stops, apply a thin layer of ointment 4 times a day.

No skin to skin contact with people or pets.

No scratching.

No picking.

No peeling.

No swimming.

No sauna.

No Jacuzzi.

No tub.

No sun.

No tanning salon.

No contact sports.

No shaving.

Be very careful at work, keep clean.



If you work in a Hospital or other medical or clinical setting ( nursing home, doctors, dental office, labs ) be very careful not to come into contact with anything in the building with your new Tattoo. Bandage with a sterile NON-STICK bandage while at work to protect from any such accidental contact. Use surgical type hand scrub at home after work before caring for Tattoo.

The better you care for your new Tattoo immediately after you get it the better it will heal and look for the rest of your life.

At night, just before bed, wipe the area down lightly with alcohol to help control microorganisms on the surface of the skin during your hours of sleep.

You must keep the Tattoo dry during showers.

Coat with Vaseline ONLY during showers so as not to allow Tattoo to get soaking wet. Wipe off after shower.

After 2 days stop using the A&D ointment and SWITCH TO A MOISTURIZING SKIN CREAM OR LOTION ( a dry skin or hand lotion ).

Lubriderm is the preferred hand or skin ointment, lotion to purchase.

BUY LUBRIDERM IF AVAILABLE.

The type of skin lotion you purchase is not as important as the act of actually getting ointment and using it. Buy a brand name lotion preferably without a lot of fragrances or odd ingredients, purchase a quality name brand, such as: Vaseline intensive care dry skin lotion, Jergens, Nivia, Lubriderm.

Lanolin in some lotions causes allergic reactions in some people.

Bee’s wax in some lotions can clog pores and is not recommended.

Use moisturizing lotion for 3 to 5 times a day for another 4 or 5 days.

Keep very lightly moist, DO NOT ALLOW TATTOO TO DRY OUT.

It is true that Petroleum jelly or any petroleum based products tend to drain the color from a Tattoo.

Please do not be stingy with the purchase of Tattoo aftercare products. You probably will spend a lot of money for a nice Tattoo, so the amount spent on care products is negligible.

Your New Tattoo is a wound that MUST BE PROPERLY CARED FOR !

Tattoo Goo, the bacitracin and other chemicals mentioned have adverse effects on the ink.

Vasoline was not reccomended (specifically) by: EVERYONE! Try Preperation H as is mentioned previously. It does not efffect the internalization of the ink as is suggested in one or more posts in favor of other chemicals/treatments.
