What do you recommend for aftercare?

What to expect:
Your tattoo will take about 2 weeks to heal. It will be tender for the first few days, then it will develop light scabs and appear crusty, these will gradually flake off. During this period the tattoo may look ugly and it may seem that the color is falling out with the scabs. Don't worry, this is normal. The last stage is when the tattoo looks healed but is still waxy or shiny on the surface. The directions below should be followed until the tattoo is fully healed.


Leave the bandage on for at least 2 hours.
Remove the bandage and do not re-bandage it. Wetting the bandage while removing it will help prevent it from sticking to your skin.
Wash your hands, then wash the tattoo firmly using mild soap and warm water, rinse the tattoo off, and pat dry. NO SCRUBBING!
Each day keep the area clean and apply one of the recommended lotions once a day. Don't keep too much lotion on the tattoo. However, don't let it dry out completely between applications. Make sure your hands are clean each time you touch your tattoo and never let anyone else touch it.


For the ENTIRE period that the tattoo is healing, use ONLY the lotions that are recommended, NO EXCEPTIONS. This is extremely important. No Vaseline, baby oil, alcohol, alcohol-based products, peroxide, mineral oil, bag balm, Vitamin E, Aloe, Noxzema, natural remedies, etc. We also do not recommend Neosporin;. It is not a good product for healing tattoos. Many people have strong reactions to it and often times it actually pulls the color out during the healing process.

Recommended Lotions:

Aveeno (fragrance-free), Aquaphor, Curel lotion, Cetaphil lotion
On rare occasions, some people may develop a reaction to one of these lotions. You will know if you develop bumps or pimples around the area. This is not a problem, wash the area and switch to one of the other recommended lotions. Do not continue using lotion if you have a reaction.

Do's and Don'ts:

You can shower as normal. But, for the 2-week healing period do not submerge or soak your tattoo in any way. No swimming, hot tubs, or saunas. It will interfere with healing and can cause infections and scarring.
Do not expose your tattoo to direct sunlight for the 2-week period. Keep it covered with clothing.
Do not pick at the tattoo! Let the scabs fall off naturally. No scratching, rubbing, or abuse of the tattoo in any manner.
Once your tattoo is healed, you may go in the sun but keep in mind the sun rapidly fades your tattoo and if you plan on being in the sun, use sunscreen to protect it. Don't use sunscreen for at least a month after getting a tattoo and try to test an area to make sure you don't have a reaction.

Important notice:

Despite constant efforts to ensure all our pigments meet the highest standard of quality and purity, the application of some pigments to some individuals may cause an allergic reaction, due to the sensitivity of the person. Lizard's Skin Tattoos and whoever it may designate as its operators, disclaim any responsibility for an allergic reaction of any person to whom the pigment is applied. The tattoo is not guaranteed when you leave the studio. We have given you the very best in art, the very best in color, and the tattoo was applied expertly under the most sterile conditions. You are responsible for its care in the next few days. Follow these guidelines and enjoy your new tattoo!
