Default Reaction to second skin

I had second skin put over my tattoo. I kept it on for 3 days. Absolutely hated it though. It seem so have had a reaction to it. Has anyone else had this problem. Reaction to second skin-img_3472.jpg

Is that the same as Saniderm? If so I get the blistering on the edge of the film on certain parts of my body

never heard of it until now, and had to google to find out what it was

did the artist recommend it?

this from the website seems to ring alarm bells though(see bolded):

Quote:
You may experience some redness around the tattoo where SecondSkin™ was applied to the un-tattooed skin. This is also completely normal and may occur with any type of medical adhesive. If you do develop an adverse reaction on the tattoo, discontinue use immediately.

Yeah it's the same as saniderm. It was used as covering instead of cling film
And was recommended I keep it on for 4 days. Has to take it off eaely. I really didn't get on with it and now I have the blisters and "darker skin patches"

I use it for healing on my legs. It protects the area from dirt, debris, and excessive rubbing when I'm at work. It's usually a god send and have had many good heals from it. Mix that with aftercare and you have a perfect heal.

That's a fairly common reaction for many people. My girlfriend is extremely sensitive to any type of adhesives including medical grade. You'll be fine but probably should avoid in the future.

That doesn't look good but I'm sure it won't affect the healing of the tattoo. Looks like you've had a reaction to it. Next time someone tries to put it on just tell them no and explain why.
