Saniderm Tattoo After Care
Your tattoo has been covered with Saniderm Adhesive.
Taking proper care of your investment will assure it heals infection free, and stays looking fresh for years. We offer a complete line of H2Ocean aftercare products at our Studio for an additional $15 at time of check-out.
ALWAYS WASH YOUR HANDS BEFORE AND AFTER YOU CLEAN YOUR TATTOO, AND DO NOT WASH YOUR TATTOO UNLESS YOU ARE CLEANING IT. This is crucial in minimizing your risk of infection. Swelling, seeping, soreness, and itching, are all common in the first few days or week. Ibuprofen is best to relieve discomfort.
This adhesive should be worn for three days without removing it. At the end of the third day, run warm water over the adhesive and peel it off as you would a bandaid. After the adhesive is completely removed, wash your tattoo with Gold Dial Antibacterial soap, pat dry, and let air dry for around 10 minutes before applying a thin layer of H2Ocean moisturizing cream or fragrance free lotion. Wash, dry, and use moisturizing cream daily.
