3. Apply unscented Lubriderm hand lotion after a couple of days, massaging into tattoo. Do not leave soaked with cream as this will plug pores and create scabs, dab off excess with paper towel.

• Do not let tattoo stick to bedding or clothes, if this does happen soak it off in the shower till it is removed. If you just pull it of f it will damage the tattoo.

• After a few days it will go through an ugly stage with light flakes and scabbing, this is normal healing.

• Soak in bath tubs pools or hot tubs

• Use scented lotions or sun screen
