How Do I Care For My Tattoo?
A: Proper aftercare is the most important step of the process to ensure your tattoo remains vibrant and free of infection. Marcus recommends a simple aftercare protocol that ensures the highest level of protection for your new art. Come in for your appointment with clean skin; with the area to be tattooed free of lotions or products. Marcus will prep the area and continuously use a sterile technique to ensure the area stays clean. After your tattoo is complete, it will be cleaned and Saniderm bio-film will be applied. This dressing will keep your tattoo clean and moisturized for the best possible outcome. After 24 hours, you will need to carefully remove the Saniderm. Gently peel up an edge and stretch the film away from the tattoo, making sure to stay parallel to your skin. Do not pull directly up from the area to prevent damaging the skin. Wash the area with antibacterial soap and allow to air dry for 20-30 minutes. You will be given an extra piece of Saniderm that will need to be reapplied and worn for 3-5 days, until the tattoos stops weeping. Using clean hands, or preferably gloves, pull the paper backing off of the Saniderm sheet. Align and gently press the film over the tattoo area. Make sure there is 1/2 in to an inch area covered around your tattoo. Smooth over the area and then remove the second plastic sheet leaving just the film on your skin. See the video below for an example. You can also visit www.saniderm.com for more about the product and application tips.
