how do you use me?
well if you're an ink addict, then meet your new bff.
just get me wet.
i'll do the rest.
getting me ready:
Soak me in clean water until jelly-like. Gently (don't twist and wring) squeeze out excess water before using on newly inked area.
in the first few days of healing:
The first 24-48 hours is SUPER important when caring for your new artwork. After your ink session, use me to gently glide over your new tattoo to remove 'post-tattoo stuff' like leftover ink, plasma + blood in the first few days of healing.
during the healing process:
Continue to use me in the healing phase. Use me as your new tattoo heals - to soothe and condition skin with no additional soaps or cleansers needed.
Let skin air dry. Rinse me and squeeze out excess water (do not wring) and hang me dry until next use. I'll begin to harden when i'm dry, but just soak me again and i'll be ready when you are.
take care of me.
i don't like germs or bacteria.
I should be sterilized time to time.
here's how: just boil me in water or put me in a bowl in the microwave for 2-3 minutes. I can be used up to 2-3 months and will begin to shrink in size - that's when you know it's time to replace me.
P.S. I'm 100% biodegradable so I can be disposed of in your green bin. cool.
