Two things are bad for new tattoos - dirt and abrasion. Tatu-derm is a bacterial barrier that eliminates exposure to dirt and abrasion and most harmful effects of the environment. When applied correctly the tattoo stays clean as long as it in place.
Tatu-derm uses the theory of moist wound management, which allows the skin cells to migrate without interruption of infection or abrasion, resulting in an improved tattoo experience. Designed to breathe like skin, the Tatu-derm film has micro pores which allow vapor transfer. Solids are contained because the molecules are larger than the pores. Keeping the new tattoo moist eliminates scabbing.
Unlike topical moisturizers, Tatu-derm is a waterproof bacterial barrier that protects the new tattoo from exposure on the job and at home with pets. Tatu-derm protects a new tattoo for days at a time eliminating the need to wash multiple times each day.
Moisture from the open skin prevents the adhesive from sticking to the new tattoo.
Apply Tatu-derm to clean dry skin with no residue from the tattoo process. Tatu-derm should completely cover the tattoo with one inch all around for good adhesion. Glycerin in green soap residue will react with the adhesive and should be rinsed well before Tatu-derm is applied.
Tatu-derm should stay in place for 12 to 24 hours while skin is open and producing fluid. After 24 hours the Tatu-derm can be removed and replaced. The second application can stay in place for couple days as long as it is sticking well to the skin and there is no fluid build up. If the tattoo is done lightly and there is no fluid buildup the initial application can stay in place longer.
If redness occurs remove the Tatu-derm and discontinue use. If you are allergic to adhesives test a small piece on your skin. Redness will clear up once the Tatu-derm is removed and the tattoo will not be affected.
To remove Tatu-derm, peel it back SLOWLY from the edge or corner. Peel it back over itself, not away from the body. Avoid stretching the skin.
Once Tatu-derm is removed, clean and dry the area and proceed with your preferred topical aftercare.
