Wait one hour after tattoo to remove bandage. After washing hands, remove bandage and wash the tattoo with anti bacterial soap. Rinse and pat dry with clean paper towel. Continue to let air dry,  not trapping any moisture, before applying ointment. Use A and D ointment VERY LIGHTLY 3 times a day for 3 days. On day 4 stop using the ointment and switch to unscented hand lotion. Few times a day until healed. We also sell H2Ocean after care which comes with its own instructions on the bottle. But use one of the above methods unless your artist gives you different instructions.
