-Keep the tattoo moist by applying lotion when the tattoo is dry for approximately 2 to 3 weeks DO NOT soak your tattoo in water (pools, hot tubs, bathtubs, ocean, etc...) DO NOT use petroleum jelly, bacitracin, neosporine or any antibiotic ointment on your tattoo DO NOT expose your tattoo to direct sunlight during the healing process (including tanning beds) DO NOT pick or scratch any scabbed or peeling skin Remember- the sun destroys tattoos over time. Always use a high-quality sunscreen during outdoor activities to keep your tattoo looking its best.
