I use A&D ointment for the first 2-3 days, and I actually use saran-wrap to cover it when I go to bed at night to keep cat hair and stuff out of it. After that, it's fairly frequent washing with dial anti-bacterial followed by Lubriderm.
I'm diabetic, and my best friend (who passed away last year) used to do my ink and I've never had a problem with any of my tattooes when using this method. :o)
Preparation H, the ointment not the cream. I know that sounds weird but my tattoo artist recommends it especially for diabetics. I'm apprenticing to be a tattoo artist, so I also know a little background about it. I've used it on all three of my fairly large tattoos and it healed fine. After that I used Aveeno. Looks goood. Blot and cream/ointment, rub lightly, and only a small amount. Keep it out of direct sunlight. You should be goooood
