In general you should leave the first piece of Saniderm on your tattoo for at least 24 hours after your artist applies it, but no longer than 7 days. The length of time will depend on how much fluid your tattoo weeps which can affect the adhesion Saniderm.
Besides, do tattoos heal faster with Saniderm?
Tattoos using Saniderm heal faster, experience less scabbing and peeling, and undergo significantly less early tattoo damage.
Also question is, will my tattoo scab with Saniderm?
Some peeling is not uncommon during the tattoo healing process with Saniderm. However, it is not normal for a tattoo to be scabbing under the tattoo bandage. Once again, we always advise users to change the first Saniderm bandage within the first 24 hours, take it off, and clean the tattoo like normal.
Can you leave Saniderm on too long?
Saniderm should not be worn for more than 7 days total.
When you use Saniderm to heal your tattoo, you will find the process much easier. While we don’t recommend taking a bath or going swimming after applying your Saniderm, taking a shower isn’t an issue. If you get your Saniderm wet, it’s no big deal! Saniderm stays on skin even when wet.
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.
You will know that your tattoo is completely healed when there are no scabs, the texture of your skin where the tattoo was placed is the same as a similar surface of skin, and the colors on your tattoo are no longer faded.
After the Removing the Bandage: Keep the tattooed area clean and dry. Gently clean with unscented soap at least once daily. Only use CLEAN HANDS to wash your tattoo.
This is completely normal and your tattoo isn’t getting washed out. All tattoos will peel away along with excess ink at this stage, and personally, every single one of my tattoos have done this, and every single one has turned out absolutely perfectly.
