Restrictions for 3 weeks:
- No swimming, baths, or submerging your tattoo under water.
- No direct sunlight. (Once healed, apply SPF 50 to your tattoo when exposed.)
- We do not recommend working out while your tattoo is healing. That being said, we know some of you fitness junkies might find that hard. Be cautious about working out and visiting a gym. You want to avoid going to a gym for at least 1 week (2 is safer) since your tattoo is an open wound and could get infected. If you work out, make sure you wash your tattoo before and after. Applying a plastic wrap covering during the work out may help prevent irritation and aid in keeping your tattoo protected from bacteria. Make sure to remove wrap and wash directly after work out.
Note: Your tattoo will start to flake, peel, and/or scab after a few days, this is normal. Do not pick, peel, or scratch your tattoo during this process. Wash and apply lotion as needed.
