We recommend H2Ocean products for the after care of both tattoos and piercings.
Please print out and follow the directions on the card below.


  • Remove the bandage after 1-2 hours.
  • Immediately upon removing the bandage, wash the tattoo. Use clean hands with warm soapy water and a small amount of antibacterial or non-scented mild soap.
  • Wash your tattoo 2-3 times daily during the healing process.
  • Pat the tattoo dry using a clean towel.


  • Use a non-scented hand lotion like H2Ocean or any other alcohol free non-scented lotion.
  • Do not pick or scratch your tattoo.
  • Your tattoo should heal within 7-14 days. It is normal for it to scab, flake and peel.
  • Avoid hot tubs, public pools, tanning beds, direct sunlight and the ocean during the healing process.


  • Do not touch the body piercing or rotate jewelry during the healing period.
  • Spray or soak the piercing 3-5 times a day with the directed aftercare product.
  • Do not take it out. Body piercings may take many months to completely heal. Changing or removing jewelry should be avoided during this time.
  • Don't let the body piercing come in contact with another person's bodily fluids.
  • Never use alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, or hand soap because they may damage healthy cells and cause scar tissue.
  • Products that contain petroleum are not recommended as it may collect and promote the growth of bacteria.
  • Avoid hot tubs and public pools until the piercing is completely healed.
  • Avoid alcohol, smoking, chewing tobacco and spicy foods with a new oral piercing.
  • Avoid direct sunlight, tanning beds, oils and lotions.
  • Tight fitting clothes may irritate a new piercing.
  • Practicing good hygiene helps during the healing period
