1. Protection Duration:
  - Keep the protective covering on for a minimum of 24 hours, but ideally for 3-4 days.

2. Removing the Protection:
  - Remove the protection in the shower once it's time, or if it starts to fall off and exposes part of the tattoo.

3. Washing the Tattoo:
  - Wash your tattoo carefully with warm, soapy water using clean hands. Avoid using a sponge or anything abrasive.
