Most tattoo artists recommend using it regularly during the healing period, which is usually no longer than two weeks. However, you should always follow your tattoo aftercare instructions carefully, and contact a healthcare professional if you have any concerns.

If you notice any changes in the color, smell, or texture of your Aquaphor product, it is best to discard the product and purchase a new one.
