You should wash your tattoo with warm soapy water and pat dry 2-3 hours after getting tattooed, and twice a day for 1 week.
Starting after 24 hours from your tattoo apply a thin layer of FRAGRANCE FREE lotion to your tattoo at least 4 times per day.
It is normal for tattoos to peel and or scab, don't panic! Just keep them clean and moisturized and let them be, never pick or scratch at your tattoo. If it itches its healing, a gentle pat on and around the area takes care of it!
