Start by washing your hands with liquid antibacterial soap.
Remove bandage after 2-4 hours, gently wash your tattoo with unscented liquid antibacterial soap and hot water, no scrubbing.
Rinse thoroughly with hot then cold water, pat dry with paper towels and allow to air dry for 2-3 minutes.
Apply a thin layer of unscented white lotion or Aquaphor, blot away excess until damp looking.
Cover tattoo with plastic wrap before bed for the first 2-3 nights, leave uncovered otherwise.
Check tattoo every 2-3 hours, if it looks dry, reapply lotion, if using Aquaphor, only use 2-3 days then switch to unscented white lotion.
Wash tattoo a few times per day.
After a few days, your tattoo will start flaking and peeling, don’t pick, pull or scratch.
Until healed, no soaking or swimming.
For small tattoos, leave on for 5-6 days
For larger tattoos, first piece stays on for 4-5 days.
Saniderm may fill a bit with blood and/or plasma, this is normal, do not drain or pop.
To remove Saniderm, it is best to run comfortably hot water on it for 1 minute then, using an unscented liquid antibacterial soap, get a soapy lather on a corner or edge of Saniderm to get it to lift or roll. Grab lifted part and peel about half an inch to one inch, repeat water-soap-peel until Saniderm is removed.
Do not peel Saniderm quickly!
Once removed, wash tattoo gently with unscented liquid antibacterial soap and pat dry with paper towels.
