Make sure to always keep A+D or Aquaphor ointment on your tattoo, as letting it dry out will cause larger scabs to be produced. This may cause your tattoo to lose color as they crack and peel. A thin layer of ointment should be applied with clean hands at an average of 3-6 times a day to keep it moisturized. The tattoo should be washed 2-3 times a day, or whenever it becomes dirty. Until the tattoo is healed, you cannot go in a lake, the ocean, a pool, or take a bath. Do not tan or receive prolonged exposure to the sun without covering it.
• Use Listerine 3-5 times a day and reapply every time you eat, drink or smoke for the first three weeks
• Tongue piercings can sometimes be changed within 2 weeks after healing, or longer if necessary
• Lip piercings can be changed within two months like non-oral piercings
• Labret piercings (or your lower lip) require both the care of oral and non-oral piercings
You should clean your piercing with any unscented hand soap 2-3 times a day for the first 3 months. Do not use alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, or any Vaseline-based products on your piercing. Make sure to wash your hands before cleaning or touching your piercing.
