Aftercare

Follow these aftercare tips to ensure your ink stays vibrant

Things to expect: Peeling, dry skin, and sometimes scabbing. A slight itch is not uncommon. This is due to the hair follicles regrowing. Do not pick or scratch! Pat, slap, or rub Burt’s Bees deep into tattoo to relieve itching.
Things to avoid: Excessive sunlight, tanning, chlorine, saunas, baths, and hot tubs for the first two weeks of healing.
Please note: It’s very important to wash your hands every time before applying burt’s bees, and Never double-dip the container without washing hands in between…
And as an added preventative measure, DO NOT share your burt’s bees with anyone… this prevents against cross contamination.

Tattoo Aftercare Instructions

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.
