It is recommended that one submerge the stuck clothing in warm water for a couple of minutes. However, if your tattoo covers a large area on your body or if it is on that part of your body where your hand cannot reach, for instance your back, then you must take a warm shower with the garment on.
After the clothing has been soaked in properly in the warm water, pull it off gently. However, if the piece of cloth is still stuck or causes you pain while you are removing it, you must soak the clothing in warm water yet again or take another warm shower for a couple of minutes.
Try again removing the piece of clothing that is stuck to your tattoo. It should now be removed easily, and will not cause you pain. After removing the clothing from your tattoo, wash the tattoo with a mild soap that was recommended to you by your tattoo artist. Dry your skin with a towel gently, and apply the ointment that was suggested to you by your tattoo artist.
