So I got tatted on Monday and took of the Saniderm tape but it has left an ugly red mark & im so tired of it! Will it go away? Also got lots of little bumps on it.

I get that too, all the rash/redness will go away 100%

I currently have this issue and it has been 2.5 days since I took my Saniderm off.  How long did it take for the redness to go away? Any advice on how to help the redness disappear?

 

It isn't itchy, but the skin around my tattoo feels like the tattoo, kind of like sandpaper/healing. This is my second time using saniderm, no issues the first time, not sure why my skin did not like it this time.

I get redness and bruising after taking the saniderm off , it's 100% normal and it will go away in a week or so,maybe more maybe less. I depends on you and where the tattoo is also.

I use Aveeno a couple times  a day after I take off the saniderm.

I use tegaderm only atm for my clients because its the safest on sensitive skin, I have used cheaper versions of this wrap that just completely suck and leave the skin red and irritated like this. Second skin is a decent brand no doubt but atm I find tegaderm to be the best one.

I have used tagederm and saniderm and IMO it's the same stuff and both have given me the same results.

    • Just butting in... read the thread, and I couldn't really understand how you got from the inspiration images to an eagle... but it looks nice and clean. Forget the olive branch... that's just complicating the tattoo... once the clouds are in there and everything is shaded it will look impressive. Trying to change or modify the design when the agreed upon plan is in progress never ends well. I'd vote for black and grey or black grey and grey-blue... but that might change after seeing the artist's portfolio. Trust your artist... it looks like you chose the right person for your project so far.
    • Stop using lotion. Within 48 hours you should notice a difference. lotion should be used as sparingly as possible, and it is usually the cause of people's worry. Too much lotion can breed bacteria. Let it dry out. Itching is normal.  Itch next to it, or tap it... don't itch it directly. If the issue worsens, go to see your doctor for anti-biotics. As for it being raised... leave it alone and look at it again after 3 weeks. If it is still raised after the scab has gone, use cocoa butter daily for a few weeks. Don't over-wash the tattoo... you don't have to stop using soap... keep it clean like you would normally.  If you get sweaty, take a shower, if you get dirt or mud on it... wash it.  Don't rub it in dog poo ect...
