AFTER CARE Tattoo 34 Style:
What to do:
Leave bandage on for 2-3 hours
Wash hands thoroughly with an Anti-bacterial liquid hand soap
Gently take off bandage and gently wash the tattoo using clean fingertips and anti-bacterial soap
Gently pat dry the tattoo with a CLEAN towel or paper towel (or let it air dry)
Continue to wash tattoo approx. 2 times a day
After 24 hours start to apply a white, unscented, uncolored lotion
Use lotion only as needed, be mindful of over moisturizing
What not to do:
DO NOT use bar soaps, they hold on to all bacteria
DO NOT pick or scratch at your tattoo, it will itch, picking at it will RUIN your tattoo

DO NOT let your tattoo bake in the sun! keep it covered while it is healing
Avoid tight clothing, pet dander, scented soaps and lotions
TOUCH UP at Tattoo 34:
What it is:
As your tattoo heals it may loose some ink, due to the natural way skin heals or because of poor care after the tattoo. Your tattoo artist can tell you by looking at it if it needs to be touched up. Feel free to contact your tattoo artist or come in to the tattoo shop.
Our Policy at Tattoo 34:
If you cared for your tattoo properly and followed the After Care Instructions (above), the same tattoo artist who did your original work is happy to touch up your tattoo for free, within the first 30 days. *Exceptions if you live out of the area or healing time is longer than expected, communicate with your tattoo artist and we can work it out.
Your tattoo must be completely healed before a touch up will be done (about 2 weeks).
What it's not:
If you want to add some elements or new color to your tattoo, that is not a touch up and you will need to pay your tattoo artist for the additional work.
