Here to help with understanding tattoo aftercare for the best result.

Recovery Derm Shield Maintenance

  • Leave saniderm on for at least 3-4 days.

  • Submerging the saniderm in water, like swimming or bathing, is strongly discouraged. However, showering for short periods of time and light work outs should be fine. 

  • If a bubble forms, DO NOT POP IT! 

    • ​The bubble is a mix of ink, blood and plasma. This actually aids in the healing process of the tattoo. 

Recovery Derm Shield Removal

  • Gently grasp the edge of the term shield.

  • ​Slowly pull from the edge back over the wrap. - Do NOT pull upwards or outwards! This can cause trauma to skin and tattoo.​

    • Using water can help make this process be less painful and help protect the skin and tattoo.​​​

  • Wash the skin with a gentle, fragrant free, soap. ​

    • We recommend Dial Gold Antibacterial soap.​

  • Pat completely dry. 

General Tattoo AfterCare

  • Wash your tattoo with a mild antiseptic scent-free soap. Continue to wash your tattoo at least twice daily for 1-2 weeks or until it has healed.

  • Moisturize your tattoo with a scent-free lotion or antibiotic ointment.

  • Wear loose clothing until your tattoo is fully healed to avoid any rubbing or pulling off scabs.

  • Avoid direct sunlight after the tattoo session.

  • Avoid swimming or submerging the tattoo until it is fully healed. 

  • Do NOT pick or peel the scabs or flaky skin on the tattoo. Tattoos are open wounds, let your body heal!
