Keep These in Mind
Day 1 - 3
Keep the tattoo aftercare film(saniderm, second skin or etc.) on your skin for 1-3 days.
Depends on if it stays on your skin perfectly or not, if stays well you can keep it up to a week. You can have a quick shower with the tattoo aftercare film(it's waterproof).
Please try not to sweat during these days, as your sweat will be blocked inside the plastic.
Remove the tattoo aftercare film immediately when:
Water goes in
Your skin has reactions to the Dermalize
If the Dermalize comes off after few hours, dono't worry, wash your tattoo with clean soapy water 1-2 times a day, wash off any liquid that comes out from the wound, use a clean paper towel tap during your tattoo.
Keep it try and clean for the first 24-36 hours.
No cream is needed before the wound is fully closed.
Then, start the "day 3/4" process.
Day 3 - 4
Gently remove the tattoo aftercare film(saniderm, second skin or etc.) under lukewarm running water, wash the tattoo with soapy water to remove the
remaining ink and the liquid from the wound.
Sometimes there might be some glue from the plastic sticking to your skin, DO NOT scrub or rub with
sponge or towel, using cream or coconut oil can help to remove the glue.
Use a clean paper towel to tap dry your tattoo, then apply a very thin layer of the cream.
Apply 2-4 times a day.
Day 5 - 10
Keep moisturising your tattoo about 2-4 times a day.
Day 10 - week 4
Keep moisturizing once a day.
Keep your tattoo clean.
- pick or scratch your tattoo
-expose your tattoo to direct sunlight or sunbeams, always use sunscreen after it heals.
-soak in a bath or swimming pool / any kind of water / Sauna
-exercise before your tattoo is fully healed.
-cover your new tattoo with cling film by yourself.
-lean on your tattoo and avoid wrapping anything around fresh tattoo
*make sure your hands are clean before you touch your tattoo
*be careful with pets as they shouldn’t have contact with fresh tattoo
*it’s the best to change your sheets as fresh tattoo, will have contact with it during the sleep
Why does my tattoo fade?
1. Your immune system
Getting a tattoo is not natural for your body, which sees the ink as an invader. This means your immune system will try to attack and disperse the ink over time.
2. The Sun
The UV frequencies in sunlight are energetic enough to break down the ink molecules over time, so tattoos that are always exposed fade quicker than those covered by clothing.
3. Poor initial care and overall skincare
A few minutes of skincare per a day can leave you with a great looking tattoo for decades to come.
4. Friction and sweating
Not all areas of the body are primed for tattooing. Some are best left alone, especially areas that get a lot of contact, friction, and sweat. Generally, the more contact and friction there is, the more wear on your skin, and the faster the ink will fade.
