What You Need to Know

After Care

Your tattoo will take a total of 3 weeks or less to heal 

upon leaving Studio 38 Tattoo & Gallery you will want to remove you bandage. 

Following the removal of the bandage you will need to softly was the tattoo with warm water and antibacterial one time.

(this is will be the only time you have a bandage, you will NOT reapply new bandage).

Dry the tattoo of the surrounding moisture and apply a thin layer of Aquaphore. (TAKE NOTE ALOT DOES NOT GO ALONG WAY AND GLOBBING IT ON WILL ONLY RESULT IN DAMAGING YOUR TATTOO) .

You will want to follow the above procedure for the first week.

After your first week you will want to substitute aquaphore with a non scented lotion.


Again a little goes a long ways.

During the two week healing process you will want to avoid sunlight contacting your tattoo, sitting water, such as baths, pools, hot tubs, lakes, rivers, oceans.

During the healing process the tattoo will peel and you will want to avoid picking, scratching or abrasion to tattoo. Ripping of skin to soon can result in loss of ink.
