Clean and dry the new tattoo and surrounding skin (lotions or ointments are not necessary).
Cut the Saniderm tattoo aftercare bandage to allow at least 1 inch of Saniderm to be in contact with undamaged skin. Extending the bandaged area beyond 1 inch where available is suggested in highly mobile areas.
Peel off the paper backing to reveal the adhesive side.
Gently apply the bandage using light pressure. For best results, ensure that the skin is in a neutral position.
Remove the plastic backing, leaving only Saniderm on the skin.
Wear the first bandage for 8-24 hours, depending on how much the tattoo weeps. Remove the first Saniderm bandage, clean and dry the area, and apply a second bandage.
