Tattoos And The Wrapping Process

Wrapping occurs once the tattoo artist has finished their work:
1.First, they disinfect the area using an antibacterial cleanser or mild soap.
2.Once the skin is entirely sterile, well-protected from germs and bacteria and dry, the artist will wrap the area with professional tattoo film (recommended) or simply plastic foil.
The wrap is meant to act as a shield from harmful bacteria and germs that can cause unwanted infections.
This wrap protects your tattoo and wound until a fresh layer of new skin has grown over the area.

Benefits of Protective Tattoo Films
The benefits are many:
● More comfort. No bleeding messing up your bed for the first days.
● Regenerative. Help your skin to regenerate faster.
● Breathable. We know how important it is for a new tattoo to breath.
● Waterproof. Easy to get a shower without thinking much of your new tattoo.
● Easy to apply. You can do it at home, no need of professional supervision.


Should I Keep My Tattoo Wrapped After The First Day?

Depending which type of product (tattoo film or plastic foil), your tattoo may require a wrapping for more than one day. 

It is also reliant on a couple of factors, including your tattoos' location and whether it is easily exposed to germs, or if you have a condition that may cause you to heal at a slower than average speed.

If Using Regenerative Tattoo Film

Keep your tattoo wrapped for the first 3-5 days, then remove it and start your cleaning routine.
The thin self-adhesive film provides a moist healing environment during the initial, and most critical, healing stage of a tattoo wound. It protects the new tattoo from friction and provides a waterproof, antibacterial barrier that prevents pathogens and external contaminants from entering the wound.
