Remove bandage as directed. Do not rebandage. Wash gently with mild soap & water. Pat dry with a clean towel. Apply a thin coating of Easy Tattoo lotion, rub gently into tattoo, repeat every 2-3 hours. Do not scratch, scrub, soak, swim, tan, shave or suntan. Healing time is 2-6 weeks. At best your tattoo will flake and peel like a sunburn. Do not disrupt scabs in any way. Healing can be affected by many factors, including personal hygiene, sleep, food, drink & medication.
