So we’re coming up on our 30th anniversary and its going to be one to remember! We’ll have several guests sitting in tattooing ! More details to come soon so make sure you check back in!
Hey guys hope everyone is having an awesome week. One very common mistake made among people new to getting tattooed is looking at your artists portfolio. Although we are in the business of fixing up poorly done tattoos, it’s just so much easier to do it right the first time ! Here at I&R we have guys that can fill anyone’s tattoo needs. Some prefer certain styles as opposed others, but no matter what you want, chances are we can take care of it. Look through the artist’s section or stop by any of the locations!
Ok guys so this will be the last post on aftercare instructions for awhile. Make sure if you’re new to getting tattooed that you really look these over!
Leave the bandage on for at least 4 hours and preferably overnight!
When the bandage is removed, wash your tattoo thoroughly with antibacterial soap and warm water. Do this 2 to 3 times on the first wash if necessary.
Wash the tattoo at least 3 times a day in the early stages of it healing.
Wait 48 hours after removing the bandage to begin applying lotion. Do not apply lotion more than 3 times a day!
For the next one to two weeks your tattoo will peel, flake, and lightly scab. Do not pick at your tattoo!
