So i just got a tattoo yesterday. and it was made with a home made tattoo gun so i have absolutely no idea what to put on it…some state coco butter then others tell me to stay away from that. I’ve read from people online that its okay to put neosporne on it but then i also herd that neosponre pulls the ink right out….right now it is scabby and i have a band aid on it,,,,,, i cant go to the store to by anything until the end of the week so what should i use……

ALSO i have no unscented lotion its all scented can someone please help me out!

make sure that you don't wash it with in the First 2 hours

Wash and Treat
After you remove the bandage, you’ll want to wash your tattoo. Use lukewarm water and mild, liquid antibacterial or antimicrobial soap (Satin and Provon are my highest suggestions. Dial tends to be too harsh - generic brand antibacterial soaps are actually better) to gently wash away any ointment, blood and/or plasma and to absolutely clean the area. Do not use a washcloth or anything abrasive. Your hand is your ideal tool in this case. (If your tattoo feels slimy and slippery, you’ve probably been oozing plasma. Try to gently remove as much of this as possible - when the plasma dries on the skin surface, it creates scabs.)

Then pat (do not rub) the area firmly with a CLEAN towel or paper towel to get it absolutely dry. Follow with a very light application of your choice of ointment. A&D vitamin enriched ointment would be my first choice, but if you don't have any, Bacitracin or a similar antibacterial ointment is acceptable.

**Do not use Neosporin. This is a wonderful product for cuts and scrapes, but not for tattoos. Some can have an allergic reaction to the Neosporin, which causes little red bumps. When the bumps go away, so does the ink, and you end up with a polka-dotted tattoo.**

I was also told that vaseline will work too

1) take off bandage.. once you got a tattoo.. the bandage should have been left alone for a minimum of 2 hours soo i suggest you take of the bandage right away!

2) Wash/treat
- Don't use wash cloths/use your hands
- Pat dry don't rub

3) When showering (DON'T SOAK TAT) mild body soap(* don't have i recommend you get some ASAP)

4) Scrathing/peeling - apply moist lotion *coco butter i'm not that sure but it should work (DON'T PICK OR PEEL)

If you had a tattoo you need a brain transplant.

If you did it yourself even that's probably too late!

What's wrong with your body that you have to mutilate it?

I would never employ anyone with a visible tattoo because I would think he/she was an idiot!

Bepanthan or something like that its for nappy rashes an smells like a new baby which is kinka cool If you no what I mean.

Don't let it get wet, let the air get to it so it drys a scabs up

The biggest challenge is that the (Home Made) tattoo-related skin infections are antibiotic-resistant. Health officials state sufferers are buying street drugs to try to treat themselves.

well considering its scabbing already. Go to the store and use ad ointment. Its typically in the baby section. I believe you use that for two weeks. Then swich over to unscented lotion.

AD OINTMENT QUICK and DON'T pick the scabs it will ruin your tattoo and pull the ink out

AND oh my..take the band aid off immediately you have to let air get to it lol

hahaha :]

first take the band aid off as it will suck the ink out, and any thing with a moisturiser in it

The guy who did my tattoo told me to use savlon.
