WILD ROSE HERBS HEALING INSTRUCTIONS 

 

* Treat your new tattoo as an open wound. Keep it clean. Do not touch healing tattoos with dirty hands. 

* Before cleaning the tattooed area, wash hands thoroughly with soap and warm water. 

* 2-3 hours after your tattoo session, carefully remove the gauze bandage and tape. Don’t rip it off. If the gauze sticks, use a tiny bit of warm water to remove. 

* Using mild or antibacterial soap and hot water, gently and carefully cleanse the area, and pat dry with a paper towel or let air dry for 10-15 minutes. Do not use bar soap or soaps with dyes and strong scents. 

* Begin using the Ink Spray. Mist the entire tattooed area. You will notice that the mist will dry quickly. It is not meant to moisten the tattoo, but to cool and heal it. Use the Ink Spray for 4-5 days. You can basically use this spray as much as you want throughout the day. When you start to get that itching sensation, this spray cools down your healing tattoo. 

* After 1-4 days, you can switch to the Ink Balm. By this point in time you will see your tattoo has begun to dry out and maybe even start to flake. The balm gives a little moisture to the tattoo to keep it from feeling too hard or crusty. The Ink Balm isn’t 100% necessary for a good heal, but it does add comfort during healing. If you prefer a drier heal, then just stick with the spray. You may use both the spray and balm interchangeably if you wish. 

* Healing usually takes 1 to 4 weeks, depending on the size of the tattoo. As it heals, expect peeling like sunburned skin. 

* Do not pick at scabs. Doing so can pull color out of the tattoo. 

* Avoid sunburn, salt or chlorinated pool water, hot tubs, saunas and steam baths, or any soaking while the tattoo is healing. 

* Itching is expected. Don’t scratch the tattoo. 

* Redness, swelling, and color weeping is normal but should pass after 1-3 days, depending on the location on the body. Some areas may stay swollen due to pressure from standing, movement, etc.
