Why don’t you just stick to the aftercare you’re used to, why change it if it work’s perfectly fine for you.

Yep looking for a better way and this is the method that the artist recommends for his art. If we didn’t look for better ways of doing stuff we would still be living in caves.

I have heard from people that haven’t tried this method that it’s bad because it traps all the bacteria in there but at the same school of thought if you wash it with an anti bacterial soap then re wrap it wouldn’t it protect it from bacteria? So what I here from most of you that have tried it that it worked good for you.

I read somewhere that using antibacterial soap is bad because it kills the good bacteria your skin has?

Don’t know how accurate that is.

too hot in georgia or naples to stay wrapped that long,

I leave artists shop wrapped dry,
let it ooze and discharge for 3-4 hours
wash it and let it thoroughly air dry,
that night wrap it, very very very light a&d

wash clean in morning, long air dry, no wrap………dry heal or very very very light a&d if chewed up

same for 2-3 nights, peel 4th day, all set


currently wearing 250 hours, and many more to go, cant explain what my ink means, its personal, it is about who I am

My artist has me keep my tattoo wrapped about 2-3 hours. Once I unwrap it I automatically clean it with unscented soap and warm water and then when I rinse it, I use the coldest water possible for just a few seconds to close the pores. Then once it’s rinsed off and fully dry just use unscented lotion 3-5 times a day. I’ve been doing this with all of my tattoos and they’ve all turned out awesome in the end! Never had any problems

I’ve never used any soap for cleaning my tattoo’s just use warm water once a day.


Are you going to bark all day little doggy or are you going to bite?
