My artists tells me to just wash them with antibacterial soap and put unscented lotion on them periodically. But the lotion stings too much, even with out scent in it. A friend told me she uses a and d ointment on hers and it kept them bright. I've heard in the past that a and d is not a good idea. Although my artist used it while he tattoos. i usually do what my artist says, but tried the a and d today. little bits of the outline started to come leak ink and the ink looks weird. it looks like gel(?). i'm obviously going to stop using the a and d now, but i wanted to know what you all do for proper tattoo care. I can't seem to find the RIGHT way to do this!
