Standard Bandage Aftercare
Remove the bandage after recommended timeframe given from your artist. Usually spanning between, 2 to 12 hours. Wash your hands with an antibacterial hand soap. Then wash the tattoo with the same soap and lukewarm water. Moving you fingers gently in circle motions, clean the tattoo with soap and rinse with water. Pat dray with a clean hand towel or clean paper towel.
Apply aftercare to the entire tattoo. You will saturate the tattoo with your chosen aftercare. We provide packets of a and d ointment and our preferred brand VitaliTree we carry for sale. When rubbing the ointment or salve into the tattoo make sure to spread an equally amount everywhere. You want to have a thin layer, so your skin can still breathe.
Repeat washing and applying ointment or lotion three times daily, for 10 to 14 days until scabs have flaked off by themselves. You may wash and lotion up to four times daily if you sweat or frequently get dirty at work.
Things to know:
Apply ointment/lotion only after washing the tattoo. If you have not washed the tattoo first, please do not rub new ointment/lotion into the last layer of ointment/lotion, previously applied.
Please refrain from scratching, picking at scabs, or touching the tattoo during the healing process. The only time you should be touching it is while you are cleaning and applying ointment/lotion.
Stay out of the pools, hut tubs, lakes, rivers, saunas, tanning beds, during the healing process. If you think it may be a bad idea because your tattoo is not healed, it probably is.
If you are given a Saniderm bandage you will wear the first bandage for 24 hours.
After removing the bandage you need to wash the tattoo with soap and water. Then, pat dray with a clean hand towel or clean paper towel.
After the tattoo is clean, we must sterilize the arm for the second bandage. You will saturate a paper towel with rubbing alcohol and then properly sterilize the tattoo. Wipe the tattoo and surrounding skin down with rubbing alcohol.
Let the tattoo air dry and then you will apply the second Saniderm bandage for 5 days.
It's normal for the tattoo to leak blood and plasma out throughout the healing process. This is completely normal and it will all wash away once the bandage is removed after the 5th day.
Because the Saniderm bandages are adhesive, some peoples skin can have slight irritation. If your skin becomes irritated you may remove the bandage at any time and begin taking care of your tattoo with our first set of instructions.
