Default First Tattoo, aftercare advice

Hi there, I'm very new to tattoos but am getting my first tattoo done in a few weeks. It's going to be some poetry on my inner forearm, nothing snazzy just something that means something to me. I'm not nervous about the process of getting the tattoo, pain doesn't really bother me, but what I am nervous about is the aftercare process, and not ruining my ink.

Just wondering on what the aftercare process entails, how do I sleep with the new tattoo, how long do I leave the Saran Wrap on, ointment types, how much etc.

Really excited about this tattoo, I'm just nervous about the aftercare. When I get cuts and wounds they take a while to heal for me, I don't know if this will impact the tattoo.

You should bathe in goats semen for 48 hours. Works for me.

Follow your artist's advice, that's usually the safest bet.
Provided your artist is a professional of course.
If he's cockeyed and works out of his kitchen just do exactly the opposite of what he suggests and you'll be fine.
