Wash your tattoo with warm water and regular LIQUID GOLD DIAL SOAP. Be sure to use a good lather, scrub with your fingertips, and rinse the tattoo thoroughly with warm water.
Pat dry your tattoo with a clean paper towel and apply a small amount of PALMERS COCO BUTTER to the tattoo. Massage all of the coco butter COMPLETELY into the tattoo as if you were using any other lotion. BE SURE THERE IS NO EXCESS LEFT BEHIND.
******Healing ointments may vary from artist to artist so be sure to check with your artist to be sure you are using the ointment or lotion he has recommended for you*******
Continue this process for the first three days.
On day 4 your tattoo should start to flake and peel much like a sunburn. During this process be sure to ONLY WASH your tattoo with soap, no coco butter is required. Do not pick at the flaking skin, as it must slough off naturally at its own pace to ensure proper healing. If you do have any scabbing do not pick at the scab, let it run its course.
Once the tattoo has completely flaked and peeled you may resume use of the coco butter until your skin has regenerated to its normal state.
Certain areas of the body require touch ups because of the placement of the tattoo not the application. The foot, fingers, hands, and neck are all areas that do not heal very easily. For example, in the case of the foot tattoos generally don't hold as well due to the high rate of exfoliation. In these cases these tattoos may require a small payment for touch up, please consult with your artist in regards to this issue upon getting a tattoo in any of these areas. Touch ups are done Monday through Thursday by appointment only, please consult with your artist in regards to your touch up.
As a general policy we offer the first touch up for free, although some areas as described above will require a small payment. Please consult with your artist.
*****For any additional touch ups thereafter we ask you consult with your artist. It will be at the individual artists discretion as to the pricing of any further touch ups*******
