Tattoo help?

got my first tattoo almost 3 weeks ago, it’s small, just one word, not itchy or scabby/flaking. Was just wondering when I can switch from aquaphor to just lubriderm (unscented + recommended lotion). Just tired of my arm being sticky all the time lol

    If your arm is sticky all the time you are using too much aquaphor.  You shouldn't need to switch to lotion at all, the aquaphor is just fine to use for the entire healing period. 

    You don't need a lot of product, just enough to massage into the skin and keep the tattoo moist.  You don't want so much that your arm is sticky.
