Do NOT re-bandage your tattoo.

Always wash your hands before touching your tattoo. Do not use a washcloth or anything abrasive on the tattoo. Treat it as if you have a sunburn.

Do NOT pick or scratch at the tattoo as it heals. You will scab throughout the process to shed skin.

Do not submerge yourself in water. Showering is not the same as bathing. Avoid hot tubs, public pools, lakes and the ocean during the healing process. Again, do not soak your tattoo with water.

Avoid direct sunlight or tanning beds for 2-3 weeks. Avoid tanning oils, lotions and sand.

Avoid tight fitting clothes that might irritate a new tattoo.

Touch-ups are included in the cost of a tattoo at Dreamworx Ink but will NOT happen within the first 3-4 weeks of healing.
