After getting a tattoo, I don't have one, just curious of about how to go upon taking care of it after the actual tattoo is done (As I am looking into one). Thanks for the help, also will the tattoo parlor you go to explain the proper pre cautions?

Your tattooer should give you an aftercare sheet and explain how they recommend caring for your new tattoo.

I personally will wash it when I shower (just soap suds and no wash cloth), apply Lubriderm lotion (dye-free and fragrance-free), and leave it the fuck alone. If I have a spot that isn't healing happy, I'll use some antibiotic cream (never ointment). And I'll use hydrocortisone cream when it gets to the itchy phase.
