when can i stop washing my tattoo?

I got a tattoo on my upper arm almost three weeks ago. It’s done peeling and doesn’t look shiny. Also, if i’m done washing do i still apply aquaphore?? my artist only told me wash twice a day.

    Don't listen to Sophie. A tattoo cannot heal within a week so she's obviously not looking after them of she ain't trolling.

    It takes around 3-4 weeks to fully heal - even if you think it has, it hasn't. Leave it for the day and if it doesn't dry up or get itchy then it could be healed but I prefer to do the whole 4 weeks so there isn't any issues.

    I have tattoos all over my arms and sternum. They all healed perfectly within a week or so only apply ointment on it if the skin is pealing otherwise its healed! Don't worry about it!

    Hope this helps! :)
