Can I take Saniderm off after 3 days?
Leave your Saniderm wrap on for at least 3 days, no more than 6 days. During this time your tattoo is going to weep and the bandage is going to fill up with body fluid called plasma. This plasma will also mix with excess pigment and create a murky colored fluid and will most likely cover your tattoo.

If your tattoo IS scabbing underneath Saniderm, as long as there are no signs of infection or contamination, we recommend leaving the bandage on. Removing Saniderm from a scabbing tattoo may pull the scabs off prematurely, disturbing the ink and resulting in color and detail loss.
While we don’t recommend taking a bath or going swimming after applying your Saniderm, taking a shower isn’t an issue. … Although you can easily wash after applying Saniderm, it is important to still monitor the time you spend in the shower.

The best way to remove Saniderm is to find an edge of the bandage, and then to pull it back over itself in the direction of hair growth. Pulling upward on the Saniderm can be painful, so we don’t recommend it.
When the adhesion of the Saniderm bandage begins to weaken, that’s your cue to remove or replace the bandage. If you notice excessive weeping or fluid under your currently applied piece of Saniderm, it’s okay to carefully replace it with a new one.
If that doesn’t cut it, sparingly use 70% isopropyl alcohol on a clean paper towel to gently remove any remaining glue.

Liquid under the Saniderm is normal*. It may look dark or murky. This liquid is a combination of blood, plasma, lymphatic fluid, and ink (AKA your body’s natural healing juices). This liquid oozes from your skin when your body is repairing itself.
