For how long should I wash my tattoo?

I got a pair of angel wings on my forearm yesterday. the tattoo artist told me to leave on the bandage overnight then remove it and wash my tattoo with soap & water. - I did that, & washed it pretty thoroughly.
MQ: how long(weeks/months) should I keep washing it? and just once a day?

I've always been told to take the bandage off in like an hours...but wash it with antibacterial(unscented) soap 2-3 times a day for about 2 weeks and put a thin thin thin layer of aquaphor over it just enough to keep it moist! DON'T SMOTHER IT...then after it heals use cocoa butter to keep it fresh

Every time you take a shower but make sure you rub it gently not hard or it will ruin your tat, after you take your shower make sure you put that cream on and wrap it back up.

Keep it clean and sanitary. Do not pick the scabs off.

I used Vaseline on mine. Keep it clean, don't mess with it. Should be good to go in about ten days.
