  • Leave your tattoo bandaged at all times during the time you are at Lucky 7s Electric Tattoo Company, LLC.
  • Leave your tattoo bandaged for at least 1-3 hours after your tattoo procedure. ( It is best to leave your tattoo bandage on until you get home so you can properly care for your new tattoo.)
  • Before you remove your tattoo bandage wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with warm water (do not use hot or cold water) with a sent free antibacterial soap.
  • Take off your bandage.
  • Put a small amount of sent free antibacterial hand soap in the palm of your hand, add a little bit of warm water and wash your new tattoo in one direction (Do Not scrub or rub hard.) and rinse completely with warm water until there is no more soap on your new tattoo.
  • Pat Gently with a clean paper towel ( Do Not use bathroom towels, hand towels, etc.) to dry off your new tattoo.
  • Apply a even light coat (Just enough to make your tattoo shiny.) of recommended aftercare on your new tattoo.
  • Never dip your fingers back into your recommended aftercare after you have used your fingers to apply aftercare to your tattoo without washing your hands first.
  • If you touch your tattoo wash your hands with antibacterial hand soap before and after you touch your new tattoo to prevent spreading or contracting an infection. ( Do not let anyone else touch your tattoo.)
  • Apply tattoo aftercare as needed throughout the day. ( Try not to have excessive ammounts of recommended aftercare on your new tattoo, it will prevent your tattoo from healing correctly. (Your tattoo needs to breath so a thin a coat is sufficient.)
