The first piece of Dermalize Protective Tattoo Film can be left on the skin up to max 24 hours, the exact time will depend on the amount of fluids that the wound exudes: this will vary from person to person. In case of copious bleeding or weeping, the film can be replaced with another piece before 24 hours (a change after 4, 6 or 8 hours is also possible). In most cases people choose to wear the first piece for the first 24 hours, but it is advisable to change it whenever it gets dirty, too loose or full of liquids. When removing the film, make sure to carefully wash the area with suggested soap and water, and gently let the tattoo dry for 30min.
This will also make it easier to remove it later on. Any further application of Dermalize can be kept on for a variable amount of time, depending on the client’s need, changing it when you deem it necessary. The total suggested use of Dermalize, covering all applications, is between 6 and 7 days.
if Dermalize is hard to pull off the skin, simply let some warm water run under the tattoo film, so that the glue becomes tender and removal of the film is easier.
After that the tattoo will be dry but dont worry moisturise with some lotion coconut oil , bepanthen to avoid going to dry.
