Our tattoo studio provides the latest in aftercare. All of our artists use Saniderm bandages for the semi-immediate healing processes. If you are allergic to medical adhesives or latex please make sure you have let your artist know so we can accommodate you with a standard bandage.
With the saniderm, leave the bandage on for 24-84 hours. The saniderm will pool with blood, plasma, or ink. THIS IS OKAY. Any excess can be drained by pressing the liquid to the bottom of the bandage and absorbing it with a paper towel.
The bandage is waterproof and you can shower with it.
Remove the bandage in the shower slowly at your leisure.
Upon removal of the sandier apply a thin layer of Aquaphor, Lubriderm, or any other non scented lotion for the next 2 weeks or until the skin has returned to its pre-tattooed state.
Stay out of direct sunlight or tanning booths until the tattoo is completely healed.
NO gym, or working out for at least 4-5 days while the saniderm is in place. If you work out before with your exposed tattoo this can lead to INFECTION.
DONOT SCRATCH PICK, OR RUB THE TREATED AREA WHILE IT IS HEALING. THIS CAN CAUSE INFECTION AND LOSS OF COLOR.
Apply sunblock to your tattoo (SPF 15+) after it has healed and whenever you are exposed to the sun to protect it from DAMAGING ULTRAVIOLET RAYS. SUN EXPOSURE CAN FADE YOUR TATTOO OVER TIME.
Your tattoo should heal in as little as two week, Saniderm may help it heal faster but we all heal differently and likewise healing times can vary.
Consult a physician if any of the following signs or symptoms develop: REDNESS AT SITE, GREENYELLOW DISCHARGE, FOUL SMELL, FEVER
Everyone heals differently and taking care to follow the above after procedures is
