-peel (pull towards you, not against the grain) the saniderm off after 1-3 days.

 If stubborn, take a paper towel (no towels because of microfibers) and dab it with warm water, or take it off in the shower, until it peels off completely. 

Do not drench the tattoo during this process

 

-wash the tattoo with fragrance-free anti-bacterial soap and pat dry no more than once per day. (keep it clean and out of harm's way!)

-always wash hands before touching the tattoo to avoid contamination

 

-use “pea-sized” ointment at a time until a thin coat covers it. 

Do not over-moisturize (can lead to plugged pores and moisture for bacteria to grow)
