*NOTE* Do not pick at or scratch your tattoo during the healing phase. Avoid swimming or soaking your tattoo in the shower for two weeks. Avoid tanning beds or direct sunlight on your tattoo for three-four weeks. Wear clean loose-fitting cotton clothing to protect the healing tattoo. After the four week healing period always use sunscreen on your tattoo to keep it looking its best. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me.
