Can I use Saniderm more than 24 hours after getting a tattoo? The answer is yes. Any time within the first 48 hours you can still apply a Saniderm bandage, however if the tattoo is no longer bleeding or weeping or if there is any scabbing at all you will need to apply a very thin layer of an aftercare ointment or lotion (our favorite is After Inked) to the tattooed area only. This lotion will prevent adhesion to the tattooed area. Even without scabbing, we still recommend using a thin layer of aftercare ointment before applying the Saniderm bandage.
