  4. My Tattoo is Scabbing Underneath My Bandage. Is That Normal? What Should I Do?

My tattoo is scabbing underneath my bandage. Is that normal? What should I do?

It is not normal for a tattoo to be scabbing under the tattoo bandage during the healing process. Once again, we always advise users to change the first Saniderm bandage within the first 24 hours, take it off and clean your tattoo like normal, and let the area air dry for about 20 minutes. Apply the second bandage, and leave that on for 3 to 5 days.  If you experience scabbing underneath Saniderm, you may want to apply a small amount of lotion or ointment under the bandage to provide a little extra moisture.
