We ask all clients that use the suggested Tattoo Mafia Aftercare Products. Do Not touch your new tattoo without washing hands first!

Your tattoo artist spent time to clean, disinfect, sanitize, and barrier their station.  As well as sterile tattoo instruments and single use needles and materials.  Now it is up to you to take appropriate care for your new tattoo.

Your Tattoo is not permanent until it is healed !

TATTOO MAFIA, INC. Aftercare Kits Dover, DE


  • SOAP : This soap must be scentless & colorless.  Most scented or colored soaps contain alcohol in their perfumes, as well as dyes which can irritate and dry out your new tattoo.  Our recommendation is Dove soap.  It is a mild moisturizing soap that contains no alcohols or perfumes.  This way there is very little to no stinging or irritation and a reduced chance of allergic reaction.
  • OINTMENT : There is a list of ointment options available.  We recommend one of three different options, depending on your skin type and environment.  Bacitracin, Emu Oil or Tattoo Therapy.  If you have products that worked for you in the past and have had no issues with them.  Feel free to use them, according to the guild lines set below.  If this is your first tattoo, please take the advise of your artist and use their recommendation.  Failure to do so can result in rough healing.   All touch ups necessary to fix your tattoo, will be at your expense not the studios.
