All our artists wrap each individual client with saniderm or a equivalent derm. We also offer tattoo aftercare to purchase for when the derm is removed. Please follow your aftercare instructions from your artist.
Saniderm Pro Team
We proudly use and represent Saniderm as aftercare in our shop.
Unlike Saran Wrap, Saniderm is a medical-grade, breathable, waterproof tattoo bandage. Saniderm is engineered to be permeable to gasses, like oxygen. These bandages alleviate many of the pitfalls that come with other tattoo healing methods. Primarily, Saniderm drastically reduces the risk of contaminants entering the wound site of a fresh tattoo. Wearing Saniderm protects the area from unwanted shear/friction and allows the body to keep itself moisturized. Plus, it conveniently eliminates sessions of washing and applying aftercare to a new tattoo. The result is a tattoo healing experience that is safer, smoother, and more efficient.
-Cut and trim Saniderm to fit around the tattoo – include an extra inch around all sides. TIP: Cutting the edges of the bandage to be round will help it adhere better and feel more comfortable.
-Peel the white paper wrapping from the sticky side first and place gently over the tattoo.
-Once the adhesive side of the bandage is in place, remove the see-through second layer from the top side and smooth bandage over the tattoo.
-Keep the first applied bandage on for anywhere from 3-24 hours, depending on how much the wound is weeping. Replace within 24 hours. It’s fine if there is some plasma/blood/lymph fluid buildup under the bandage during this period, but don’t leave it longer than 24 hours.
Saniderm Removal and Reapplication of 2nd Bandage
-To remove Saniderm, find an edge of the bandage and pull it back over itself in the direction of hair growth. The shower is the ideal place to remove Saniderm. Running water will help loosen the adhesive and relax the skin, making the removal much more comfortable. Dry removal of Saniderm may cause discomfort and added trauma to the skin.
-Discard the used bandage and wash the tattoo with a mild soap, preferably fragrance-free.
-Allow the tattoo to air dry or pat dry with a clean towel.
-Apply a thin layer of aftercare product to your tattoo. Keep the product on the tattoo only if using a second or third bandage. Saniderm does not adhere well to wet/moist skin.
