This is for a tattoo adhesive bandage which should remain on your tattoo for 5-7 days (do not confuse this with a regular, store-bought plastic wrap). To be applied by a licensed professional only.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Day 1 - Day 3
Plasma and ink will pool under your bandage. This is completely normal. Leaking from the bandage is also common. Tip: Avoid wearing light-colored clothing during this time.
Day 4 - Day 7
Edges may be lifting up at this point. This is ok as long as it is not exposing air directly to your tattoo (needs to be free of bacterial exposure). Carefully trimming the lifted ends with clean scissors may help. Remove bandage at minimum 5 days, but preferably 7 days if possible.
Once it's time, take off your bandage in the shower slowly under running lukewarm water. Use Dial Gold antibacterial soap to wash your tattoo as you gently guide the bandage off. Don't rip it off, or you may pull out pigment and/or irritate your skin.
Once the bandage is off, follow the Aftercare Routine.
