After Care - Kline Family Ink


Please follow these After Care instructions below not only for general health but to keep that your tattoo looking great for years to come.

  1. Always wash your hands before touching or cleaning your fresh tattoo.
  2. Remove the bandage no later than 30minutes after you leave the parlor. This is very  important as a tattoo is an abrogate puncture wound and to promote healing it needs to breathe.
  3. JERRY-COLOR-LEFT-LEG-1To wash the tattoo: Dispense antibacterial fragrance free and lather with warm water. Gently apply the lather from your hands onto your tattoo begin careful not too over wash or scrub the area.
  4. Gently rinse the tattoo ensuring you have removed the entire soap residue.
  5. Pat dry with a clean, fresh towel and allow to air dry for 10 to 15 minutes. Do not dry with paper towel or toilet paper as the small fibers will cling to the fresh tattoo.
  6. Apply a thin layer of fragrance free body lotion to the tattoo 3 to 5 times per day.  We recommend: Eucerin, Lubriderm and Aquaphor. Do not over apply lotion as this will impede the healing process.
  7. Keep the tattoo clean and dry.
  8. Keep the tattoo covered in direct sunlight.
  9. Do not swim for 4 to 6 weeks as Chlorine will bleach the tattoo.
  10. Do not submerge, soak, scratch, pick or peel the tattoo.
  11. If you have any questions or concerns please call the shop or stop in, we are happy to help.
