No, Iíve healed most of mine that way and I think itís fine. Aftercare is one of those things where everyone will have different advice. Do what works for you.

Having said that, I had a couple of tattoos in the summer that I wrapped with cling film for a day or two. I then had another appointment with a different artist and they kindly put saniderm over them. I find it really convenient as I travel about a lot and healing with cling film is pretty horrible when itís hot.

Saniderm is permeable and breathable so wouldn't be too bad, no?

I've used Tegaderm in Texas and it wasn't bad.

Was more responding to this, which is also very true. If I'm healing with cling film I gotta leave that body part out of the covers at night so I don't get heat rash lol

One of the benefits of using saniderm is that it reduces the occurrences of scabs. I'm sure it doesn't eliminate the possibility completely but I haven't had a single scab when I use it.
I got a scab under saniderm on my latest tattoo....

Luckily it didn't pull the scab off when I took it off but I am still worried about how that area is going to heal up. Scab didn't fall off yet.

Well scab fell off and its looking pretty good now. What do you guys use on your tattoos after they are through the initial healing phase? I was thinking about picking up some bio oil to make sure it doesnt scar up at all under where the scab was. It doesnt look like its going to though...

Guess I am just looking for product to use on all my tattoos in general now that they are healed.

Scabs have everything to do with ooze. If you wash it frequently it wonít happen. The amount of trauma, saturation, details only determines how frequently you have to wash it. It means you have to watch your tattoo and adjust depending on what you see. ďWash it twice a day and be doneĒ doesnít work for every tattoo you get.

Bio oil is good for laser. I use Aveeno moisturiser on tattoos. Natural, unscented stuff is best.
