When you walk into Ink Couture NYC, you’ll notice a Moto-Guzzi motorcycle standing between the artist stations on the right side of the parlor. Moto-Guzzi made only 400 of this particular model for the world, and we own number 337. Just like how rare and classic this model is, Ink Couture NYC is nothing like the generic tattoo parlors throughout New York City. We are a rarity among the thousands of tattoo parlors. Our experienced tattoo artists will produce amazing quality tattoos that stand out among the tattoo crowd.
Owned and founded by Frank Russo, a businessman with an extreme passion for tattoos, Ink Couture NYC is filled with an array of talented artists ready to accommodate you for walk-ins or you can make an appointment.

Leave that bandage alone because your artist took the time to ensure that air-borne bacteria does not enter your body through your new tattoo. A new tattoo, as awesome as it looks, is a potential breeding ground for bacteria and infection since a new tattoo is an open wound. So leave that bandage on for at least two hours MINIMUM.
After a two hour minimum of leaving the bandage on, you can remove the bandage and use lukewarm water and mild liquid antibacterial or antimicrobial soap to gently wash away any ointment, blood and/or plasma. Make sure to completely clean the area. Do not use a washcloth or any abrasive material; your hand is your best tool in this case.
If your tattoo feels slimy or slippery, you have probably been oozing plasma. Gently remove as much of the plasma as possible because when plasma dries on the skin surface, it creates scabs.
Next, pat (do not rub) the area firmly with a clean towel or paper towel to get it completely dry. Follow up with a very light application of your choice of ointment. We recommend you use either Ink-eeze healing lotion or After Inked aftercare lotion. Apply either of these lotions for 2-3 days.
DO NOT use neosporin because some people have an allergic reaction using neosporin, which causes little red bumps. When the bumps go away, so the does the ink and you will end up with a polka-dot tattoo. We recommend using Ink-eeze tattoo numbing spray or Ink-eeze Black Label tattoo numbing spray if you experience swelling and bleeding.
After 2-3 days, while keeping the area clean, you can continue using Ink-eeze healing lotion or After Inked aftercare lotion when needed. This will keep the skin soft.
Showering, Bathing, Hot Tubs, and Swimming
Yes, you can and absolutely should shower with a new tattoo. It’s perfectly fine to get your tattoo wet, just do not soak it. We highly recommend that you do not submerge your tattoo in a bath or a hot tub for at least 2-3 weeks if you wish to avoid serious damage.If you get soap, body wash, or shampoo on your tattoo, quickly rinse the area with water. Swimming – pool, fresh water or salt water – should also be avoided for at least 2-3 weeks.
Protection from the Sun
After your tattoo is healed, you must always protect the tattoo from the sun’ ultraviolet rays because the rays can fade and damage your tattoo. Before spending time laying down on a warm sand with a hot sun over your head, protect your tattoo with a minimum 30 SPF sunblock. This will keep your tattoo vibrant for many years to come.
Ink-eeze is a brand we highly trust for all aftercare needs on tattoos.
Ink-eeze healing spray is petroleum-free and made with vitamin A, C and E, soybean, sunflower, oats, cucumber, green tea, cranberry, sweet almond and pomegranate extract. With minimal use, you can get the moisture you need without clogging your pores. There is no need to rub the tattoo area with the healing spray. we recommend you spray once over the clean, tattooed area for 3-4 times a day until the tattoo is healed.
Ink-eeze healing lotion is a cream-based aftercare that moisturizes the skin and heals your tattoo. This lotion is great for people with sensitivity to ointments and would prefer to heal with creams. Apply thoroughly to the clean tattooed area as needed.
Ink-eeze daily moisturizer is specifically formulated to keep your tattoo protected, help prevent fading and look good on an ongoing basis. Keeping your skin hydrated is a key component in keeping your tattoos pristine. Apply generously to the skin daily or as desired.
Ink-eeze tattoo numbing spray is a powerful 5% lidocaine liquid anaesthetic. It contains a vascular constrictor to aid in reducing swelling and bleeding. Fast-acting, easy to use, and powerful – this product is effective against broken skin. Spray and lightly wipe throughout the area, and let it sit for 90 seconds.
Ink-eeze Black Label numbing spray is made without epinephrine (the vascular constrictor), a component that some, but not all artists desire. This version of the numbing spray contains benzalkonium chloride, known to kill 99.9% of microbial bacteria.
After Inked tattoo moisturizer and aftercare lotion is non-petroleum based tattoo lotion that is highly recommended by professional tattoo artists. After Inked is paraben-free, fragrance-free, gluten-free, enriched with grape seed oil (a potent antioxidant), and is dermatologist tested and signed. After Inked is formulated with natural ingredients to preserve and protect your tattoo for life.
