Proper care of tattoos is important to prevent infection or scarring. Tattoos are forever, and you only get once chance to make sure that it heals correctly so that you can enjoy it for the rest of your life. Don't touch the bandage The bandage is in place to prevent your tattoo from becoming infected with airborne bacteria. You're probably proud of your new tattoo and eager to show it off to everyone, but it's not going anywhere, so give it the time it needs to heal. There's no getting past the fact that new tattoos are essentially open wounds, and it's important to treat them as such. After the bandage comes off Follow your tattoo artist's instructions on when to remove your bandage. Remember, just because the bandage is off doesn't mean your responsibility to care for your new tattoo has ended.
Gently wash the area with a mild antibacterial soap and lukewarm water. Don't use a washcloth -- they are abrasive and could damage the tattoo. Clean the area thoroughly to remove any leftover ointment or dried blood. To dry the area, pat it very carefully with a soft, clean towel or a paper towel. Do not rub. Follow with an application of an antibacterial ointment like Bacitracin. Do not pick at the scabs that form. This can lead to scarring, which can lead to a mottled tattoo, which will require touch-ups. If the itching bothers you, apply a mild lotion like Eucerin.
