Now that you have your new tattoo, you will want to take care of it.
From this point forward, your artist is not responsible for any infection or problems you may have with healing your tattoo if you don not follow our recommended aftercare.

We Recommend:
Dial Antibacterial Liquid Soap (we sell Dial Gold for $3.00) and Aquaphor or Tat Wax. Do not use bar soaps (even Dial or antibacterial) as bar soaps may contain spores. If you are allergic to any recommended aftercare, please refer to your artist.

Do Not Use:
Neosporin, Vaseline, A&D or any other healing ointment. These products are wonderful for cuts or scrapes but not for tattoos as they sit on the surface of your skin, keeping the tattoo too moist, attracting dirt and dust and cutting off your tattoos access to much need air to heal.Caring for your tattoo is about scab maintenance instead of healing. Your body will do exactly what it needs to do to heal your tattoo. Your job is to make certain your scabs don’t get over moisturized, causing excessive scabbing, which will cause large chunks of ink to be missing when your scabs fall off as the tattoo heals; or too dry, which will cause your tattoo to crack and bleed, often creating dots, thicker lines, or other imperfections as well as pain.

It’s important to follow these guidelines:
Leave your bandage on for 2-4 hours. Your artist took care to cover your tattoo for a very good reason. You are leaking plasma and your tattoo is very susceptible to airborne bacteria. Wash your hands first and wash the tattoo with clean hands immediately after removing the bandage and do not re-bandage after washing. Your cleaned tattoo will need to air dry and heal.After removing your bandage you will need to wash your tattoo with warm water and liquid dial antibacterial soap. Make sure to wash away any blood, plasma, excess ink, ointment until the area is completely clean. Use some pressure and your hands to wash. Never use a wash cloth or sponge. If you leave any plasma on your skin after washing the plasma will dry and immediately scab, so try to remove as much plasma when washing. Allow your tattoo to dry completely before applying a thin layer of Aquaphor or other tattoo specific balm such as Tat Wax (We sell Tat Wax for $5.00).

Bathing, Showering, Swimming, & Tanning:
You can and should shower with your new tattoo. Do your best to avoid shampoos or body washed running on to your tattoo because they’re abrasive. You should not soak your tattoo completely so please avoid bathing and swimming for 3-4 weeks. You can get staph infection from soaking your tattoo.Please do not tan with your fresh tattoo. If you must tan, bring a clean fresh towel and cover the area loosely. Staying out of the sun while your tattoo is healing is the most recommended option. Once your tattoo is healed, you should apply an SPF 30 or higher sunscreen on the tattooed area whenever you’re in the sun. UV
rays break down the ink in the skin, leaving your tattoo a faded, blurry example of what it once was.


Your tattoo will take on a waxy look after a few days and that waxy new skin will

take a couple week to come off. While that tattoo is in the ‘waxy’ stage, it will
look faded and blurry. Your artist has taken all the necessary precautions in
accordance with the state to prevent infections. It is now your job to follow the
instructions in this aftercare. Should you have any issues or questions regarding
your tattoo, its your responsibility to contact your artist or one of the shop
affiliates to evaluate your tattoo.All artist at Raven Ink are independently
contracted. Any and all touch ups are to be done by the original artist.

We are with heavy hearts. We lost one of the good ones this weekend. These words could never do justice to who he was. Not having Pete here with us is surreal. He will leave a hole that can never be filled... with anything.

Packard Pete was a part of not just the Raven Ink family but a part of many families. Pete was a modern day viking, cowboy, pirate. He lived his life how he wanted to live it. He celebrated his life everyday in his special Pete kind of way. He rode his bike like he stole it, he crafted his unique art with mastery, he brought old, rusty junk yard hot rods back to life with a relentless self discipline, never satisfied, always learning, always improving his crafts. Pete was a hot rod builder, an amazing artist, a chopper builder, the consummate perfectionist, a true man. He carried himself with a gruff exterior but there was always a twinkle in his eye. His heart bigger than his own self. He saw the humor, the often black humor in everything, very often at the expense of all of us. He would drop anything he was doing and help anyone out who needed it, more often than not at the plight of his own. He was the guy you could call at 4am and he'd come help you change a tire on the side of the freeway. He'd give you the shirt off his back and then wash it for you, fold it and let you keep it. He brought so much to so many people and those people know this, If you don't you missed out.

Pete was the best kind of human. A realist, a true brother, a son, a best friend, a shoulder to cry on, a reality check, a comedian, an expert, a lover, a hater, the life of the party,

Pete lived this life. And at the end of the day we have to celebrate and be inspired by his passing. Not for what happened, but for who he was and how he lived. If just a little of that rubbed of on you, you too are lucky.

Pete you will be missed, loved and celebrated forever. And one day, we will see you, we will see you riding your bike, left hand off the handlebars on your leg, burning down the ethereal highway at 90, with that look of total satisfaction knowing you did it right - that hearty laugh echoing in the skies, and you'll welcome us back into your pack and show us the way to live that next life that you've already mastered. Brother, You did it with style. You did it with class. And you did it your way. Love, Honor, Respect.

- Eric Powell
