TATTOO AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS: SANIDERM
-Leave Saniderm bandage on overnight. Remove bandage while in shower the following morning. The bandage is VERY sticky. The method below has proven to be the easiest way to remove the bandage.
- With a safety pin or needle poke as many holes as you can in the bandage (being careful not to touch your skin) before getting in the shower. This will allow soap to get under the bandage and help break down the adhesive
- Once in the shower lather the unscented over the bandage as though it just a dirty part of your skin. Still using soap start rolling the bandage from the top down. Eventually the bandage will begin to slide off.
-Using your finger tips and liquid unscented soap, gently wash your tattoo under warm running water.
-Pat dry using a clean paper towel.
TIPS FOR WORKING WITH SANIDERM
– For larger sessions where shading or color is applied you will need to re-wrap your tattoo with a fresh Saniderm bandage.
-For maximum comfort, ensure skin is in a neutral position when applying Saniderm.
-When cutting the bandage for application, keep in mind that rounded corners provide the best adhesion.
-Saniderm bandages may be overlapped by 1/2 inch (1 cm).
-When applying to elbows and knees, the joint should be in a neutral position — neither straight nor completely bent.
After 3 days remove the bandage, wash the lymph and excess ink drainage from your new tattoo using soap and water, pat dry and lightly moisturize.
-When very little bleeding will occur, for instance a tattoo with line-work only, you may not need to use another Saniderm bandage.
