The original bandage should be removed after a couple of hours and should not be re-bandaged as the wound will need airflow for best healing. You will need to treat the area with antibacterial ointments for about a week. The best choices are Vitamin A& D ointments, Bacitracin or Zinc Oxide ointments. For those allergic to such antibiotics, a water based antibiotic cream such as Curel can be substituted. Under no circumstances should you use hydrogen peroxide. Not only can it bleach the colors of your tattoo but the bubbling effect can wash the color right out from the skin.

When cleaning the area of your new tattoo, you should do it by hand very gently with warm, soapy water. Do not scrub with a rag or apply much pressure. Rinse the soapy water off with cold water and then gently pat the area dry. No not rub or scrape across the tattoo with a towel as this can easily extract the ink or push it around and out of place to blur your design.

What cream are you using? Remove the original cover bandage after one hour.

When I had mine done I used savlon and put it on the night after it was done, then a few times a day after that, worked fine for me :)
