Carefully remove bandage after 2 hours. Wash tattoo with a mild, unscented soap. Make sure to wash off any blood that may be seen on your tattoo (use a wash cloth if necessary to get blood off for the first initial scrub, then use your hand only to wash the tattoo for the following 2 weeks).
*If using Burt’s Bees Hand Salve: Massage into your tattoo 6-10 times a day for 3-4 days then SWITCH to Lubriderm or Vaseline Intensive Care 6-10 times a day until healed.
*If using Burt’s Bees Almond Milk Hand Lotion: Massage into your tattoo 6-10 times a day until healed.
Make sure the aftercare is rubbed deep into the pores. Do NOT apply large amounts of Salve or Lotion to the skin; if you think you have too much on, gently dab with a paper towel to remove the excess.
