Tattoo Aftercare, not an afterthought?

Hi, I am getting my first tattoo on my wrist on Saturday and was wondering if anyone had any advice about the aftercare. My friend is coming to stay for the weekend and we had planned to go out - will it be ok to drink after the tattoo as I know it thins the blood? Also - any recommended ointments or anything... show more Hi,

I am getting my first tattoo on my wrist on Saturday and was wondering if anyone had any advice about the aftercare.
My friend is coming to stay for the weekend and we had planned to go out - will it be ok to drink after the tattoo as I know it thins the blood?
Also - any recommended ointments or anything I should use on it?

Thanks in advance!
