How to care for your tattoo:
WASH your hands!
REMOVE saniderm/tegaderm after the first 24 hours under warm water
WASH your tattoo with unscented body wash
PAT DRY with a clean towel or let air dry for 20 mins
APPLY new layer of saniderm/tegaderm with CLEAN hands, if someone is helping you make sure their hands are clean!
LEAVE this new layer on for 5 days.
APPLY unscented dye free lotion AFTER the 5 days is over. Remove the saniderm following the same steps. Use a SMALL amount.
Things to know:
Blood and ink pooling up in the saniderm is normal, this is just the tattoo going through the healing process let it run it’s course
DO NOT apply the saniderm with unclean hands, the saniderm is a protective barrier to keep out Blood Bourne Pathogens, Bacteria, etc. Applying with unclean hands is just trapping bacteria under this “second skin” that you are applying
DO NOT submerge in water. Though saniderm is waterproof for shower use, do not go swimming or take a bath with it.
DO NOT apply any ointments till AFTER you remove the second saniderm after the 5 days is over.
KEEP AWAY from directly sunlight on your fresh tattoo
If the second layer comes off before the 5 days is over due to excessive sweating or hard labor you can contact us for further instructions
How to make it heal “faster”:
It’s not a secret, there’s no magic trick to making your tattoo heal faster except the obvious. The better you care for your body, the easier the healing process will be. Eating a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water, and getting enough sleep helps give your body the “magic” it needs to supply nutrients to the healing “wound”.
