*Do not use Saniderm if you have a sensitivity to adhesives.
Keep the Saniderm on for a minimum of 48 hours, and a maximum of 4-5 days. The longer you are able to keep it on, the more your tattoo will be able to heal while bandaged.
During this time there will be a buildup of fluid (plasma,ink,blood) underneath the bandage. This is normal and should remain contained within the Saniderm. It may make your tattoo look blurry, it is just the fluid, your tattoo is fine. If it does leak(and the seal between the Saniderm and your skin is broken) remove the bandage and replace or continue to heal with traditional aftercare instructions.
To remove Saniderm-slowly peel-roll the Saniderm up or down, side to side but not away.
Thoroughly wash tattoo with soap and warm water with clean hands (no washcloth or towels).
Allow to air dry or use a clean paper towel. Moisturize with lotion daily until healed. Apply in thin layers. Avoid lotions that contain perfumes, synthetic pigment, glitter or alcohol.
Avoid sunburn, salt or chlorine water, hot tubs, lakes, rivers etc. until your tattoo is healed.
