I'll tell you what,if your tattoo artist you are going to see does not give you complete instructions on how to care for your new tattoo then do yourself a favor an go see a real tattoo artist that does ,you will be so glad you did !
Hubby just got his first tattoo last night. The artist told us to wash it with cool water and antibacterial soap. Apply the soap with your finger and rub lightly. DO NOT scrub or rub it hard. When done, rinse with cool water and pat dry. Then apply antibiotic ointment very lightly. You need to let the skin breath but still apply a very thin layer of ointment. Do this process 3-4 times a day for 3-4 days. After that apply a white NON scented lotion to it periodically to keep it moist.

It is best not to use Aveeno on a new tattoo. If the tattoo is still fresh it is best to use Aquaphor or A&D ointment.

If you have a new tattoo it isn't recommended to have your tattoo in water for an extended amount of time. If you are going in the water you could use medical tape, saran wrap, and whatever ointment your tattooist recommends for the healing process. I, personally, would put ointment on the tattoo, cover it with the saran wrap and then use the medical tape to hold it on. Doesn't sound very attractive, but it will allow you to spend time in the water and not affect the tattoo.
