Leave this bandage on for 1 - 2 hours, try not to exceed this time.
Do not rebandage with The Standard Bandage.
What is The Standard Bandage?
I apply a CBD water based product to the skin, which relieves inflammation, pain and irritation.Then I cover your tattoo with an absorbent pad and / or barrier wrap
From this point on, your tattoo artist is no longer responsible for any infections or problems you may have with your tattoo if you don’t take proper care of it, please review the information before and after your appointment.
It is very important that you follow these guidelines since your tattoo is an open wound.
Wash your hands every time before removing your bandage, washing your tattoo or applying aftercare.
I generally do not recommend petroleum based ointments in my aftercare:
Aquaphor, Vaseline, A&D.
After washing your hands thoroughly, remove the bandage and discard in the waste bin.
Using warm water and antibacterial unscented soap, gently wash away any glide, plasma, or blood away with your fingers to completely clean the area.
Do not use a washcloth or anything abraisive.
Use a clean paper towel to gently pat the area dry. Since paper towels are disposable it is the cleanest way to dry your tattoo.
Do not dry with your bath towel as it can have bacteria in the fibers.
After 2-4 days you may start applying a light, even coat of unscented lotion or Hustle Butter.
Wash the area before reapplying product, follow with blotting dry your tattoo with paper towel.
You don’t want to put lotion or butter on a wet scab.
Continuously use Hustle Butter or Lotion for 2 - 3 weeks or until healed to prevent dryness and maintain skin health.
How often to wash and treat your tattoo
It's best to follow twice daily washings, typically morning and at night. Use lotion or butter as needed or twice daily until healed.
Repeat the steps listed and make sure not to over care for your tattoo because over washing or applying too much product too often can irritate your tattoo and interfere with the healing process.
