Saniderm Aftercare

The first piece of Saniderm can be left on your new tattoo for 8 to 24 hours. If you notice excessive weeping or fluid under the saniderm, remove and replace it with a fresh piece.

If your artist gave you an extra piece of Saniderm, In 24 hours, remove the Saniderm and gently wash the tattoo area with a mild antibacterial soap. Allow the tattooed area to dry completely.

Once dry, apply a second piece of Saniderm. This  piece will stay on for up to 6 days.

Helpful tips:

The best way to remove Saniderm is to find and edge of the bandage and then pull it back over itself in the direction of hair growth. Pulling upward on the bandage is painful and we don't recommend it. You can also remove the bandage in the shower under warm water.
