Quoting ~Elliott's.Mommy~:" they didn't give me any ointment. they never covered it either, and I thought you were supposed to have it covered..."
Oh man. It sounds like it could start peeling before it's supposed to, which can cause it to scab and pull ink (the tattoo on my right forearm... I started lotion too soon and a part of it scabbed and completely pulled the ink out). The tattoo artist is supposed to cover it, and leave it covered for about 3-4 hours. Then when you take the wrap off, you wash it with antibacterial unscented soap and water, and then apply aquaphor. Do that for 3-4 days. Once it starts looking scaly, stop the aquaphor and switch to unscented lotion until it's finished peeling, and do the lotion up to 5 times a day.
How big is your tattoo?
