Every tattoo practitioner has their own advice so predominantly listen to your artist. These are basic guidelines.
Keep your tattoo away from pets or places pets have been such as pillows and bedsheets
Keep your tattoo clean and wash it twice a day with soapy water, if possible, until the tattoo has healed
Avoid direct sunlight and using sunbeds
Don't submerge your tattoo until it's completely healed, this include swimming pools, baths and sauna's
Don't use any other creams – definitely no Savlon or Sudocrem, creams that are antiseptic will fight the ink and ruin your tattoo. To provent infection, keep the tattoo clean by using soapy water twice a day, keep away from dirty areas and wear loose clean clothing over your tattoo when outside or around pets
