How they used to take care of tattoos
Anyhow, here's how Tattoos were smeared with petroleum jelly and covered with clingfilm - the skin would stink, the pigment would not come out, and the smell was not the most pleasant either. This beauty could get infected, up to the point of scarring. All the instructions included the phrase "don't peel off the crusts!": they did appear, falling off with the pigment. Now crusts or peeling is a sign of poor healing, the tattoo should be moisturized and soft. If the master recommends a food wrap, we recommend going to a more professional person who keeps up to date with tattoo innovations.
It's all bad.
A tattoo with no care, as if it had started to puddle
There are stories when guys used aftershave cream and "Rescue" - in the latter case, "Rescue" saved everything, including the paint. The tattoo came out completely If you want a quality drawing, heal according to the instructions above.

Self-healing with Dermalize film and comparison with Suprasorb F film
Good afternoon dear tattoo lovers. Hello to all those who just looked at my review. Today, I want to tell you about a film that will minimize your wasted care time.
I'm talking about the Dermalize PRO tattoo healing film. This is my first experience with this film, but in the not too distant past I healed tattoos with a similar film, namely Suprasorb F. This time, I had a tattoo done in another city and the tattoo shop did not have any of the healing films. The prospect of healing was sad because I had to deal with diapers, antiseptics, ointment. But as it turned out, not all was lost. The master sent me to a specialty store for tattoo equipment and oh, the miracle! There was a film for sale, but unfortunately not Suprasorb F. I was a little disappointed because suprasorb action is already familiar to me and I saw how to stick the film. And this is a different film, albeit similar, but different. As assured me the seller:
The only thing that made me a little apprehensive was that I could only glue the film on a few hours after the tattoo was done. And in the instructions was even a point that it is undesirable to glue the film after a long time after the work is done.
Is 8 hours a long time or a short time? Last time they glued the film to me in half an hour, but here it's been a quarter of a day. And I have to glue it myself. This time the tattoo is small and in a convenient place for me Before I started gluing, I watched a few video instructions on YouTube. There is nothing complicated. Treat the surface with chlorhexidine, wipe the place with a sterile towel and stick the film as gently as possible. That's what I did. And thank Gods, it worked! And after 5 days with the film I had no difficulties at all. There was practically no crusting, just like the last time.
The advantages of Dermalize Pro film
- can be purchased by yourself
- convenient way to heal
- Time and money savings (one sheet of film costs 150 rubles)
- Excellent healing result without crusts and loss of pigments
- easy and painless removal
What shouldn't you do while wearing the film?
- visit saunas, swimming pools
- Engage in sports and physical activity that will result in heavy perspiration production
- expose the tattooed area to sunlight, go to a tanning salon
- Soak for a long time in the bathtub (it is allowed to take a shower).
- Break the integrity of the film, otherwise the film might get infected and the healing will not go according to plan.
Comparison with Suprasorb F film
Well, now I can summarize and compare Dermalize PRO to Suprasorb F.Let's talk about the differences:
1. Unlike Suprasorb F, this film, after 5 days, comes off quite easily. With Suprasorb F I had to struggle to get it off. But, the Dermalize PRO has a higher early peeling rate.
2. In the instructions, it says that Dermalize PRO must be applied twice. The first time immediately after the session, and the next time several hours later. This is done so that the sundowness does not arrive in the sterile film all the time the healing process takes place. I, of course, only glued it once. Suprasorb F is only glued on once for the entire duration of wear. If you follow the instructions, applying Dermalize PRO becomes a not-so-budget option, especially if you have a massive tattoo.
Let's talk about the similarities.
1. both films offer us quick healing without much effort
2. Both films are resistant to humid environments, which means we can take showers and baths during the healing process. However, I would not recommend films in contact with water for a long time, because I have seen some people's edges peeling off after bathing (this applies to Dermalize PRO).
3. After removing the films the skin with tattoo cream should be moisturized. After removing Suprasorb F, my skin peeled off for about a month. This time I was luckier and the tattoo peeled off 6 it and almost imperceptibly.Photo of the tattoo
If I have to choose between traditional healing or Dermalize PRO, I choose Dermalize PRO. I recommend that you try Dermalize PRO and evaluate its results Healing with Suprasorb F film - https://irecommend.ru/content/otlichnaya-alternati...

Consequences of improper care
Remember, the tattoo master is not responsible for the tattoo if you have not taken care of it correctly, and he is not obliged to monitor you and to remind about the necessity of treatment of a tattoo and about abstinence from alcohol. If due to neglect of the master's recommendations problems occurred - it is entirely your fault, and the consequences of this can not always be easily eliminated. And the consequences can be very serious, both for you and for the tattoo. For example:
- Discoloration of the tattoo, in some places a complete loss of pigments;
- large scars;
- The blurring of the design's contours;
- An allergic reaction that can last for years without treatment.
Tattoo care - options
There are two ways approved by the masters. Below we will talk about each of them.
The primary compress is made by the master immediately after the session. Take it off and change it after 3-4 hours. Before that, wash the tattoo with warm water and liquid soap and gently blot the skin. Then apply the healing cream.
Once absorbed, cover the tattoo with a diaper and fasten the compress. Change the bandage 3 times a day - in the morning, afternoon (at lunch) and evening (before going to bed), 5 days.
From the 6th day the diaper is not used. Remains only the cream recommended by the master (another 2 weeks). Apply it 4-5 times a day, not letting the skin dry out.

Be sure to wash your hands before you start processing!
After the session, the master seals the tattoo with a special film (for example, Suprasorb). It is designed to heal and protect against friction, moisture, dust, and is worn for 5 days.
How to remove Suprasorb safely
You need to steam the film with warm water or a hair dryer. The main thing is to keep the temperature comfortable. Then pick up the edge and pull it as far as possible to the side
It is important to keep the Suprasorb fabric stretched at all times. Continue to peel off without tugging or force
Then rinse the tattoo with liquid soap and thoroughly rinse off the foam. There is no need to take loofahs and rub. Any aggressive action is contraindicated.
It is possible that the skin will peel - do not worry. Apply the healing cream 3-4 times a day.
General rules: Hot water and steam, ultraviolet light, exercise, sweat irritate and traumatize the skin. Therefore, during the healing period, refrain from going to the gym, sauna, sauna. It will help to keep the pigment bright and the image - saturated for a long time.
We recommend excluding direct contact with synthetic, woolen fabrics.
Protection from the sun
Fully healed tattoos no longer require special care, except for one thing: it needs protection from UF rays. Due to exposure to the sun, as well as in a tanning bed, the pigment fades. Therefore, going to the beach or for a walk in the summer day, do not forget the cream with UF filter. It should be applied in advance, 15-30 minutes beforehand.
During the healing period (the first 2-3 weeks) it is not recommended to expose a tattoo to the sun. It is better to hide it under clothing.If you have any questions about the care and healing of the tattoo, you can call our salon Tattoo Academy on the phone our administrators will help!
SUPRASORB A (SUPRASORB A) CALCIUM-ALGINATE DRESSING
- A dressing based on hydrophilic calcium-alginate fibers has the following advantages
- - Strong absorbency, which allows the dressing to be changed at less frequent intervals
- - In contact with the wound exudate the bandage fibers form the gel that fills the wound cavity. The gel does not stick to the wound, so removal of the dressing is painless for the patient.
- - The gel creates a moist environment in which the new epithelium grows well, and the wound heals faster
- - as a result of ionic exchange, the Na+ ions contained in the exudate are absorbed by the alginate and exchanged for Ca+ ions. Swelling of the wound is decreased.
- - the dressing can stay in the wound for up to 7 days. The period of use of the dressing is determined by the attending physician based on the stage of healing and degree of exudation. Gel leakage from the wound is an indication for changing the dressing.
- Calcium-alginate dressing Suprasorb A can be used for wounds with abundant exudation, such as ulcers, bedsores, fresh skin graft wounds as well as for infected wounds.
- The dressing is available in the form of square sections and as a tampon. Deep wounds and cavities are more convenient to treat with SUPRASORB A tampons.
- For fixation, dressings such as SUPRASORB H or F can be used, as well as the CURAPOR post-operative dressing or the CURAFIX patch.
- OUTPUT FORM: in individual sterile packaging
How to take care of the tattoo right after application
When can I remove the bandage?
In the salon, the artist "wraps" your tattoo in cling film, or in a baby absorbent diaper (the latter is preferable). The recommended time to wear a protective film dressing is up to 4
hours. An absorbent diaper has the advantage over ordinary food film in that it absorbs blood, blood suds, plasma and pigments, and can be wornfor up to 12
for up to 12 hours. In any case you need to clarify the time of wear with the master.
Also, there are special professional healing films, which are glued directly on the tattoo and worn until the complete healing. But, it is rather expensive pleasure.
How to flush a tattoo?
After removing the bandages, the tattoo should be rinsed with boiled soapy water, or if there is no possibility of using/preparing it, use drinking water with soap and "CHLORGEXIDIN". Contrary to misconceptions, a freshly applied tattoo should not be washed with alcohol and hydrogen peroxide! When washing, do not rub the tattoo, with gentle and smooth movements remove everything that was released from the "wound" and let it dry. Do not wipe the tattoo with towels, napkins or cotton disks, lint can cause irritation and inflammation!
What to lubricate the tattoo with?
After drying, a healing ointment should be applied to the tattoo. There is a great variety of them, from usual, sold in drugstores, such as "Dex-Pantenol" and "BEPANTEN" to professional, available only at tattoo-masters, which are recommended to use specially for tattoos healing. Before choosing the ointment, consult with your master.
After applying the ointment, you need to seal the tattoo again. Use an absorbent diaper, food wrap is only good for walking from the salon to home.
SUPRASORB H HYDROCOLLOID
- It is a self adhering dressing with a good absorption capacity for the treatment of uninfected superficial wounds with a low to medium degree of exudation such as ulcers, bedsores, oozing 1st and 2nd degree burns, abrasions and granulation wounds. It can also be used as a secondary dressing for wounds and fistulas in combination with Suprasorb A, G, C.
- As an outer protective layer the dressing has a semi-permeable polyurethane membrane that allows gas exchange, on the inner side there is a hydrocolloid layer. The hydrocolloid layer consists of absorbent particles that absorb exudate and create a moist wound environment, which promotes the processes of granulation and epithelization.
- Due to the formation of a gel-like structure, the dressing does not stick to the wound, which makes the dressing painless.
- The dressing can remain in the wound for up to 5-7 days.
- IN SUPPLICATION: in individual sterile packaging.

The properties of the healing film allow it to give effective results and stand out among the outdated methods of care for freshly applied tattoos. The features of the modern dressing are as follows:
- Reducing the healing period by about a factor of three. Tissue recovery takes less than a week, whereas previously the process took up to two weeks;
- Reliable fixation, with any form of clothing;
- Does not create discomfort, prevents friction of the tattoo on clothing and bedding;
- Protects against the emergence and development of various bacteria;
- Does not allow the penetration of moisture, with the film you can take water procedures and play sports;
- Condensation and pus formations do not form under the dressing, thanks to the permeability feature. The film does not interfere with the breathing of the skin, the liquid freely exits through it, and does not penetrate back;
- The dressing has a bactericidal adhesive, so that skin irritations and allergic reactions do not occur under it;
- Transparency allows you to watch the healing process through the film;
- The film is simply and easily removed from the body after the healing of the skin.
To use the film is quite simple, you need:
- Separate the paper layer from it;
- Press the side with the adhesive tightly against the tattoo over the entire area;
- Remove the top layer of film.
It should be noted that the bandage should overlap the area of 1.5 cm more on all sides of the tattoo. If the picture is big, it is necessary to glue several films with overlap more than 2 cm. It is necessary to remove the old film and use a fresh one in the same way as when gluing on a small tattoo.
How to use
Suprasorb-F is quite easy to use. The application process is as follows: - It is necessary to measure and cut off the necessary piece. Note that the edges of the film should extend at least five centimeters beyond the borders of the design; - Then you need to bend the red layer and separate it from the main film; - Remove all the paper layer; - Put the product on the skin surface and gently smooth the film to avoid crinkles and wrinkles; - Carefully iron for maximum fixation.
To remove the tattoo film, after healing, you need the following: - Pick up one of the edges of Suprasorb-F; - With a careful but firm movement, pull the film to the opposite side; - If the film does not come off, then you can moisten its surface a little and try again. Usually, the process will begin to work right away. The product should not be excessively moistened, because it may then tear in pieces and the procedure of its removal will be long.
The manufacturer offers several options for skeins of tattoo film: in one or ten meters. A large skein, of course, will be relevant for tattoo parlors. But for home use a small size will be enough. Get more information about Suprasorb-F quality tattoo healing film at Suprasorb-F.com.ua.
The main tool for applying the image is a needle. In the salons use special tattoo machines, in which they insert a needle of the desired size. Machines can be rotary and induction. The principle of operation they have the same - a special mechanism (motor or electromagnet) makes the needle move rapidly up and down. Thus, it significantly reduces the time of the master. If before it was necessary to do a lot of movements up and down with a brush to draw a small line, thanks to the machine, producing up to 2-3 thousand strokes per minute, the process goes noticeably faster, and most importantly less painful for the client. The thin needle, combined with the high precision and speed of the injection, causes less trauma to the skin, deep and uniformly introduces the paint. And the pain sensations are muffled by the machine's vibration.
Rotary typewriters are the best and easiest option for contouring tattoos. As for the induction machines, it is already a professional technique. They can be designed to draw the contour and or paint large fragments.
The main functions of the tattoo healing film
Effective functional features of the healing bandage advantageously distinguish it from the outdated ways of caring for fresh tattoos. These include:
- Reduced skin healing time by almost 3 times. Now tissue regeneration occurs in 5-6 days, instead of the usual two weeks;
- reliable fixation, does not require wearing loose clothing;
- no discomfort, no trauma, no rubbing of the pattern on clothing, bedding;
- protection of the wound from infection, penetration of pathogenic bacteria and their development on a favorable nutrient environment;
- preventing the ingress of moisture, which does not require the cancellation of water procedures and sports activities;
- No greenhouse effect and risk of suppuration, since Suprasorb has a breathable effect. The film allows the skin to breathe naturally: liquid is freely evacuated through it, but it does not get inside;
- Due to the hypoallergenic bactericidal adhesive there are no symptoms of allergic reactions or irritations under the dressing;
- the transparency of the film allows to visualize the healing process, to observe its course without damaging the tattoo;
- simplicity and ease of material removal after tattoo healing.
New Aries Tattoo
These properties of the bandage cause its considerable popularity in tattoo salons and with professional masters who do not save on the health of the client.
With all its advantages, Suprasorb is also easy to apply: first the paper part is separated from it, and the adhesive side is pressed tightly to the tattoo over the entire surface, after which the additional film on top is removed. It is worth knowing that the size of the bandage should overlap not only the tattoo itself, but also 1.5 cm from its edge. On large drawings, several overlapping bandages with a width of at least 2 cm are glued.
When to remove the healing film from the tattoo
Let's take a detailed look at how long to walk around with a tattoo tape and what stages you will be able to notice:
- The first day you will not notice much change;
- The second day is characterized by the formation under the film of crusty mixed with the unattached pigment;
- On the third to fourth day, the fluid evaporates and can start to pull the skin down a bit;
- On the fifth day, it is recommended to remove it.
But you need to know how to remove the healing film from the tattoo to make the procedure painless. To do this, first steam it (a normal warm bath for 20 minutes will do), then proceed to gradually remove it from the skin. It happens that such a measure does not help, then you should dry it additionally with a hair dryer and after 15 minutes try again. We hope we were able to answer the main question about how long to wear the tape for tattoo healing. This method is very popular, because it is possible to carry the healing process unnoticed and comfortably. Of course, you should definitely follow the recommendations of the master, who will definitely reiterate how long to keep the film on the tattoo after the procedure is completed.
How to take care of the tattoo?
The beauty and quality of the tattoo depends not only on the master
It is very important to follow the recommendations for care! If this is not done, even the best work will cease to be so. No one guarantees that the color will remain bright and the contours will be as clear as in the beginning
You have to take care of your tattoo all the time: protect and moisturize your skin, and in summer you have to use a cream with UF filter.
How to take care of a freshly made tattoo?

The sponge base contacts the wound surface, absorbs exudate, swells and fills the entire wound cavity, thus creating favorable conditions for moist healing and granulation development.
- The dressing is very soft and easily adapts to wounds of different sizes. Can stay in the wound up to 5-7 days.
- Combines with SUPRASORB A, C, G.
- If the surrounding skin is damaged, it is recommended to use SUPRASORB P non-adhesive.
- INDICATIONS: Uninfected superficial wounds with moderate exudation (bedsores, venous ulcers) and granulation wounds.
- IN SUPPLICATION: in individual sterile packaging.
Tattoo healing stages
Day 1: Tight, bright and fresh drawing on the skin
Your new tattoo looks just like the sketch. This is the best time to see how the tattoo will look healed, although it is a little brighter than the final shape. Your tattoo is an open wound at this stage, so keep it safe and clean.
Stage Two. The tattoo is two to six days old.
Your skin is probably pushing plasma out of the open wound. This is perfectly normal. Plasma is essentially a liquid protein that makes up 50% of your blood and helps in the healing process by forming clots, scabs and moving other substances through your bloodstream. When you film on a tattoo, you can see ink everywhere - it's ink combined with blood and plasma pushed through your tattoo to heal the damaged skin.
Tattoo inflammation: symptoms and signs of tattoo infection
Your tattoo may give off some heat: this is part of the healing process. Your white blood cells and plasma reacting to an open wound is natural inflammation, your body's way of destroying any toxic agents (like potential infections) and repairing tissue. Your body does the hard work to tighten that first layer of skin, the epidermis, so the tattoo can live in your second layer of skin, the dermis. Some people who have immune disorders, struggle with hydration or are prone to bruising may get a bruise at this stage. Watch out for this. Still keep your fresh tattoo clean and follow your master's instructions for wound care. By the end of this step, your tattoo will probably begin to dry.
New Sleeve Tattoo for Girls and Guys
Tattoo 6 to 14 days: debris and peeling
Your epidermis heals itself, and the tattoo is no longer an open wound: White blood cells, the protectors of your immune system, have worked together with the plasma proteins in your body to create a crust on your open wound. The ink is still down there, but the first layer, which is in the epidermis, will peel off.
Do not scrape, peel, press, or pick at the tattoo. How you treat this step can affect the final result.
Days 15 to 30: fresh and clean tattoo
All the scratches and peeling are gone and your tattoo is slightly taut-it's still new, but the healing is almost complete. Your nice, new layer of epidermis over the tattoo hasn't completely settled in yet, but it will eventually look like the rest of your tattoo, thanks to the natural exfoliation from dead skin cells. This is a good time to moisturize regularly and return to your normal routine. From now on, your tattoo should look its best.
Why does the tattoo become inflamed?
Remember, when following the instructions for tattoo care, you must make sure that your treatment process goes smoothly. Keep your tattoo clean, moisturized when necessary, dry when necessary, and treat it with care. If anything is suspicious, see your doctors, not your tattoo artist, as he or she is not certified to diagnose the problem
SUPRASORB A+Ag CALCIUM-ALGINAT GOVERNANCE WITH SILVER

- SUPRASORB A dressing with silver can be used to treat infected wounds:

Tattoo complete healing
How long does it take for a tattoo to heal?
Full tattoo healing, on average, takes about two weeks. The duration of healing depends on both the characteristics of your body and the size and density of the tattoo. During the healing period you need to make some adjustments to your leisure time, so that it does not damage the tattoo and your health.
Tattoo correction is done 30-40 days after the tattoo session.
Tanning in a tanning bed and in the sun
Ultraviolet light, acting even on a healed tattoo can lighten the coloring pigments. On a not healed tattoo the impact is much stronger, so until the healing of the tattoo should be protected from ultraviolet light. If you really want to sunbathe, use sunscreen on the tattoo, 30 SPF or higher.
Showering and Bathing
In contrast to the special treatment of a tattoo by washing, during showering or bathing together with water on a tattoo rust, dirt and bacteria can get there, which can cause inflammation. As a consequence, some of the coloring pigments may come out of the skin. You will have to refuse long baths, swimming in salt water, swimming pools and public reservoirs, visits to bathhouses, saunas.
If you want to take a shower, lubricate the tattoo with an oily healing ointment and cover it with food film, this measure will be enough to prevent water from getting on the tattoo.
Sports, Alcohol, and Drugs
During sports activities, drinking alcohol, as well as taking some medications may increase blood pressure, resulting in the coloring pigment simply "squeezes" out of the skin along with the blood. In addition, taking certain medications can cause the body to reject the dye in your skin. Unpleasant allergic reactions are guaranteed in this case. In addition, during sporting activities will produce sweat, which can cause irritation.
How much to apply tattoo and what ointment?
According to the rules, the tattoo should heal in the open air, so while at home it should not be wrapped or bandaged. Care for a fresh tattoo after removal of the primary bandage is simple - it is regularly washed with clean water and antibacterial soap, not allowed to get dust and dirt on the surface and smeared with ointment recommended by the master. The ointment should be special not to damage the pigment and the contour of the tattoo. Usually lubricate with Bepantenom, D-panthenol or just panthenol. In this case, it is better to use an ointment rather than a gel or spray.
For a month and a half it is necessary to forget about going to the pool, bath, sauna - the water used there is chlorinated, and it can severely damage the healing skin and etch even very good dye.
If the healing of the surface is long and extremely painful, it is necessary to forget about the solarium and the beach. Even after the healing process, when you go to the beach or a tanning salon, you should apply a tattoo surface cream with protective filters to protect it from fading. Fading is caused by ultraviolet rays.
The clothes that have stuck to the tattoo should be soaked, removed and the tattoo should be treated as usual.
For owners of sensitive skin, which is very difficult to heal, you must immediately find out what ointment to use. Otherwise, the healing will be painful.
The surface of the skin, where the tattoo was made, is constantly kept treated with a cream or special ointment. This is especially true for showering and exercising.
Healing film for tattoos Suprasorb F - reviews
Advantages heals well
Disadvantages when you remove the film glue stays on the skin and it sticks to everything is not very nice
I am a tattoo artist and became familiar with this product half a year ago. I have tried other analogues, but SUPRASORB F surpassed all expectations! I believe that a tattoo artist who wants to develop should not be afraid of progress, both in terms of application and in the important aspect of taking care of his work! Respect your work, colleagues!
In general, enough with the film individually - now I go to her (only analogue of Dermalise Pro - essentially the same product - they differ only in elasticity and adhesive base) 4-th time (2 contours and 2 paint was) using the film. On the contours quietly on the 4th day all healed (there everything is fast and you can glue at least immediately after the session, not even waiting for an hour). On zarasah enough for me 1 hour to "flow around" and at about 10 * 15 full size black-gray-white paint excretion in the morning almost none, but it's my peculiarity - some have half a day could leak a stream (especially if something else thinning blood used).Zakrasy wear 5 days, the contours could be and on 3. For removal - if in the shower to remove, then the glue wash out for a long time have (long fresh tattoo can not wet still and so for a few approaches all washed will need, but during the breaks all to it will stick), and if to remove dry, then painfully, but the glue almost does not remain on the skin.
Handy thing seems to be in comparison with the food film) But I was advised by my master to change it several times a day, and with this film just do not work. But I guess it's not necessary. Nice work, by the way. Congratulations on your renovation.
After removing the film you have to moisturize it for about 2 weeks with baby cream or Vaseline. The film lasts for 7 days. Properly
Wonderful thing, by the end of 5 days of course there is some discomfort, but the fact that you do not have every 3 hours to wake up, wash and oil the tattoo pleases most).
Comfortable, comfortable, very practical.
I ordered 5 films over the Internet (products of a German manufacturer, not sold in our drugstore) on the doctor's advice before a small operation to protect the postoperative scar. It is great stuff! This film allows me to do without bandages for longer, as it could be glued directly to the medical dressing and take a shower in peace, because it is waterproof. And after removing the therapeutic dressing, this film was glued directly on the postoperative stitches to protect them and heal as quickly as possible and to avoid secondary infections. The film is transparent and you can clearly see the healing process underneath. It holds up very well even when you move it, because it is elastic and uses a special adhesive to hold it in place. The film is easy and painless to remove. There is no irritation from it, the skin breathes and everything is very comfortable and neat. I had enough film size 15 by 20 cm, but depending on the size of the surface in need of protection, the manufacturer offers different sizes of films.
Bright tattoo. No crust. No peeling. No need to wash the tattoo every 3-4 hours, apply special ointments, change the compress. Just put it on and forget about it.
Hi there. Here I am the owner of the new tattoo. In the salon advised the film suprosorb I agreed and did not regret a bit. The previous tattoo, was done at home, and the fact that it needs to look after it no one told me, well, the view of this tattoo leaves much to be desired. So after the drawing on his skin, I prolonged the film. To walk with it it is necessary within 5 days. For 5 days I removed it safely, the tattoo looks very bright, not itchy and there is no crust.
Holds up great
This site has already presented all the positive aspects of this wonderful film in terms of tattoo healing. I, however, want to give this film a description from a different point of view. I have a prominent tattoo on my body. It just so happens that at work it is forbidden by contract to have tattoos on exposed parts of the body. I have to hide them. Suprasorb helps me with this: Apply a little foundation, wait until it dries, put the film on - and you can wear transparent tights, without fear of getting them dirty with foundation or that the capron will smear the cream and the picture will be visible. Just the same is good that the film does not roll up and stay on the skin for a long time.
Convenience and comfort
Good day! I want to share my impressions of the wonderful film for healing fresh tattoos Suprasorb F from the German-Austrian company LOHMANN & RAUSCHER. I got interested in tattoos quite a long time ago and now I am actively tattooing myself. For a long time (before the appearance of this film in the Russian market) had a rather scrupulous care of the fresh tattoos. For a long time (before this film appeared on the Russian market) I had to take care of fresh tattoos rather scrupulously. And if your fresh tattoo is in a hard-to-reach place (say, your back), then changing the bandages alone becomes a torment. Plus, if you spend all day at work. The real revelation was the healing tape. It is sold in ready pieces of various sizes: 5x7cm, 10x12cm, etc., or in rolls of 10 meters, if you plan to take it from head to toe. Actually the whole beauty of this film and its analogues - you stick it once and forget about all these washes and ointments. You can safely take a shower with it, it does not let water in. But at the same time your fresh tattoo breathes, because the structure of the film does not prevent the access of oxygen, and this is extremely important. You can ask your tattoo artist to glue it to you after your session, or you can do it yourself at home. The main thing is to wait until the blood and bloodstream stops flowing. On the 4th or 5th day, you just take it off... or rather it is not so easy to take it off )))) you need to take a bath, so the film gets steamed up and carefully peel it off. Who gets a lot of clogs for sure knows how tattoo care is exhausting. With the film you can forget about the hardships and deprivation )) Good luck everyone! Beautiful and quality tattoos and easy healing!
Hello. I recently (literally a week ago) got a tattoo. I read that it is very painful to look after it, it stopped me most of all from stuffing (well, and the minor age, I doubt someone would have me stuffed at 17. And here I learned that there is a miracle film Suprasorb f, type it for 5 days to stick, no need to look after, just glued it and quietly walk.
I asked about it in a tattoo parlor, they told me, they say, 500 rubles and the film is 10 × 10 is yours. I began to look for lower prices, and as you know, he who seeks will always find, and I found too. In another tattoo parlor, the same film and the same size cost, attention! 100 rubles! If there is no difference, why pay more?
In short, the film I bought in one salon, tattooed in another. The tattoo artist stuck the tape on me after the session and I waited. How I wanted to quickly remove it and see the result! I've read all sorts of things about it - that it hurts to remove it, and if you do it beforehand steamed under a shower, there will be glue on the skin. Moreover, I read this on the third day after the film was glued. To be honest, I was very scared.
This is what the skin under the tape looked like (the first day, a few hours after the session).
The day X came. I washed my hands thoroughly and prepared myself for a wild pain. However, it was better than I thought. Yes, it hurts a little, it's unpleasant, it's scary - but it can be tolerated. In the reviews, people had a lot of paint left on the film, but I had very little:
I was getting very little redness, by the way. And this is what my skin looked like after the film was removed:
Yeah, it was peeling for nothing. They told me to use a moisturizer until the skin was completely cured (about 10 days).
I washed and blotted(!) with a towel and used the Panthenol spray.
Then I realized that I did not like it, so I used another cream, two in one - both moisturizing and panthenol available:
I dab every time the cream is absorbed - I do not know if you really need to so often - about every hour and a half. After the cream is absorbed, the skin flakes less and looks groomed:
But in the morning the peeling again, which I think is quite normal.
In the photo, the cream is already absorbed, but the flaking is noticeable:
I take off one star, why... Maybe it should be, but my contours are a little blurry. Also, when I took off the crusts (it is not noticeable, but if you suddenly overdo it, it will leave a scar and the picture will be spoiled, and no one is safe from that).
After a complete healing I will post more photos, but in the meantime observe
My tattoo story is long and a little weird. You can read about it, if you are interested
a little bit later. For now, we're going to talk about a film that effortlessly heals a tattoo. It sounds a little strange, doesn't it? When I first heard about such a miracle, I took it with skepticism. And told me about this film my tattoo artist. I decided to read reviews on the Internet and came across the reviews of tattoo artists. They were all positive and I decided to take a chance and try it out on myself.
What makes a tattoo heal? Let's find out.
- the skin under this film breathes and this speeds up the healing process
- the film is glued once and this prevents germs and pathogenic substances from getting onto the skin * only if you do not accidentally break the integrity of the film
- Preservation of the sundowness and its accumulation and evaporation.
What not to do?
- If bubbles or folds form when gluing the film, you should never puncture or try to smooth the already glued film.
- It is impossible to sweat heavily, in consequence to be engaged in active kinds of sports, to visit bathhouses as sweat remains under the film and it can be detrimental to the result of healing of the tattoo.
- To expose a tattoo with a film in direct sunlight
- To remove earlier 5 put days, not counting day of session.
What is the advantage of the film over the usual way of care?
- Price (in my case, the traditional way of tattoo care with D-panthenol and its analogues, as well as diapers, would come out more expensive than the film Suprasorb F)
- convenience ( the film is glued once for 5 days, while the diaper should be changed every 3-4 hours with the usual method of healing)
- brighter result (I can not see it myself, but according to feedback from the master and other people, when using the film the color of the tattoo is preserved better)
- no crusts are formed
- less risk of getting infected
- The film is transparent, so you can always watch the tattoo and its condition.
After the tattoo session I walked for half an hour in a bandage and only then the master glued me the Suprasorb film. During the gluing some small bubbles and creases appeared, but there is nothing wrong with that. One to three days after gluing, there will be a little bit of treasure, and these bumps will serve as a repository for it. But in my case, there was almost no treacle, so there was no "dirt" under the film and the treasure did not leak and accumulate at the bottom of the shin. I was a little worried, so I decided to read about it on the Internet, but I couldn't find anything like that, unfortunately. When I took off the film, I saw that there was a little bit of treasury, but not much. Asked the same question to his master, he told me that "it's all individual and there is nothing wrong.
With each day the film was tighter and tighter pressed to the skin. On the 4th or 5th day it even felt fused to the skin. On the second day I involuntarily peeled off a little foil with my hand, but there was still a lot of space before the tattoo and I sealed the place with a plaster, so as not to "accidentally" continue tearing off the foil before time. Let's see some pictures of the Suprasorb F film in action.
These are pictures on day 3 or 4 after gluing.
As you can see, dirt accumulates at the border of the film and the skin, but it does not affect the healing process in any way. Only the aesthetic appearance is spoiled.
It's the evening of the fifth day, which means it's time to get rid of the film. I carefully read the memo again and proceeded to remove the film. In the instructions, it says to pick up the film from one upper edge and pull it forward and upward, as if stretching it. I did not quite follow the instructions, but I tried. After removal you should take a shower and wash the tattoo with soap and water, then gently blot with a towel and put on moisturizing cream.
P.S. Do not pre-moisten the film as glue from it may remain on the skin (I think it will be difficult to remove)
Here are pictures of the result immediately after the session and after removing the film. I think the pigment is almost the same as it was before the film was removed. The difference in lighting and photo quality makes the tattoo look faded after removal, but that's not really the case.
Tattoo after session
And a little more on the aftermath.
After removing the film you need to smear the tattoo with a moisturizer or baby cream as the skin flakes a bit. After the rest of my shin heals, I'll post the full tattoo and maybe learn some more trivia.
PEACE BE WITH YOU ALL.
Also, I tried healing the tattoo with Dermalize Pro film. If you're interested, you can check it out -
As you know, after a tattoo is applied, it must be carefully cared for, otherwise you can ruin the work. The process of care is very labor-intensive: several times a day it is necessary to wash the tattoo with warm water and antibacterial soap, then moisten it with a special cream and wrap it with an ordinary diaper. Not everyone has the opportunity to devote time to their tattoo every 3-4 hours, because we all work or study. Are there alternative ways to care for a freshly tattooed tattoo? Yes!
Suprasorb F (Suprasorb F) is a special wound healing film, which includes tattoos. With this film you can save a lot of time and effort.
How does it work? Suprasorb F film is simply glued on the tattoo and you can literally forget about it for five days. As long as your tattoo is covered by the film, you don't need to take care of it in any way. All you will have to do is not remove the film prematurely or scratch it.
How much does Suprasorb F film cost? The cost of a roll of film varies depending on the size. A roll of 10 cm x 10 m will cost about 2,800 rubles. The price may vary depending on where you buy it.
Buying a whole roll is not reasonable. You can't use up the whole roll in a lifetime, even if you stuff your whole body with tattoos. The most ideal option is to pay for the film directly at the tattoo parlor. So I did. In the end, I paid 300 rubles for a small piece of film (because my tattoo is small). The tape was glued to me by the master himself, immediately after applying the tattoo.
It takes 5 days to remove the tape. Earlier this period is strictly not recommended. Can I wear the tape any longer? My master said that he once wore it for a whole week and nothing bad happened. That's why you can take the film off after 5-7 days. I took it off on the sixth day and it was fine.
Feelings while wearing the film. My tattoo is on my neck, so the film slightly interfered with my moving my head, but that's only at first, then I got used to it (or the film stretched). Under the film the tattoo itches, but you can't touch it. Once I felt myself starting to scratch the tattoo in my sleep, and as soon as I realized what I was doing, I immediately stopped. But the film is strong - you can't just peel it off with your fingernails.
The next day, under the film, I saw that my tattoo seemed to be "smeared" (you can see it in the photos). There is no need to panic - everything is normal. This is allocated sukrenitsa, a special liquid that flows out of the wounds. You should just leave it like this, not touch or try to remove the film.
The film lets air in, so your tattoo breathes. The film is waterproof, but I tried to avoid getting wet on it, just in case. You should not use sauna and steam baths, for 10 days you should also refuse to do sports, because the tattoo should not sweat.
The time has come to take the film off. What to do? Since my tattoo is on the back of my neck it was hard for me to remove the tape myself, I asked my mother. Don't try to wet the tape or steam it in the hope that it will come off easier. You just have to pull on the ends of the film, pull it to the side and never tear it off sharply, like a Band-Aid. There are many videos on the Internet about how to remove Suprasorb F film correctly - watch them.
After the film is removed, you need to rinse the tattoo, rinse off any residual blood vessels. Crusts may appear on the tattoo - there is no need to peel them off. After you have washed the tattoo - put a cream (I used De-panthenol). For a few days you can smear cream on the tattoo to moisturize the skin and accelerate healing. But, in fact, once the film is removed, no more special effort is needed.
I am very happy that I used Suprosorb F. It helped me avoid the hassle of the healing process. For small tattoos and tattoos in inaccessible places (like the neck) it is the perfect option! I recommend it to everyone!
The average buyer
After the tattoo, the master suggested two options (and there are only two):
1) put bandages on, treat, take care of, be very very careful
2) Put the Suprasorb film on for 4 days, do nothing with it, take it off after 4 days and that's it. Just smear cream on it!
I haven't seen any other special recommendations, it's my first tattoo, so I didn't bother.
The film is really comfortable to wear (a few pieces were glued), its gluing guarantees sterility and protection of the leg.
Washing and wearing clothes does not interfere at all.
It does not cause discomfort, it is completely elastic, there is not even a feeling of a film on the body.
After four days I tried to take it off... It was very painful. I watched a lot of videos on how to remove the tape. The most important thing in the removal process is that it must stretch (extremely important), so it must be removed in the opposite direction, not the way we usually tear off plasters. The nuance was as follows: my skin itself is dry, so the film just sat on the skin BEGINNING and no matter how I stretched it correctly - the process of removal was extremely painful. In the end, most of the glue stayed on the skin.
If we go back to its effect, the film coped with it wonderfully: no crust, no scabies were released, literally overnight the skin healed up and in the morning I could already see a wonderfully healed tattoo.
And, as promised my recommendations:
1) well in advance of the moment when you are going to do a tattoo - take care of your skin. If it's dry - don't be lazy to do some procedures, creams to improve its condition. This will not only help to properly remove the film, but also improve the healing process.
2) if there is glue left on your skin from the film - generously moisten the swab with something greasy - Vaseline oil, just oil and with non-traumatic movements you can remove the glue, rolling it in oil in larger particles (also it can simply stick to the cotton swab). Anyway - this is the easiest way to get rid of the glue.
Photo of the tattoo immediately after removal of the film:
When I first (10 years ago) came to do tattoo, all recommendations of the master for tattoo healing were that fresh drawing necessary to smear a week with d-panthenol ointment and not otsyryvorivat crusts. Mazazat-a-layers, crusts were, my hands itchy, as indeed, and the tattoo itself. All healed in two weeks. Eight years later (two years ago), I decided to get another one. There were some innovations in the recommendations: apply the same ointment, but for the first three days hide all the beauty under a piece of absorbent cloth, change the bandage about every three hours. Ok. The first time abundantly moistening the fresh drawing with ointment and closing it from the eyes of people, germs and possible damage, prapraktiche without crusts healed everything in 10 days. And so, in the spring of 2021 I wanted to decorate my body for the third time (it's a long process, after all). And here the master told me about a new way to heal tattoos: a special film. They say no need to smear, change the diaper does not need glued and forgot for 5 days, then removed, washed, baby cream pomazhal and rejoice in life. Since my new clothes were on my wrist and no one will give me bed rest for a few days, it means that I have to work and do all household chores in the old regime and I can not guarantee complete safety to this part of the body, I decided to try the film. In 20 minutes after the session a fresh tattoo was sealed and I was released home. The first day everything was fine, on the second day the image under the film a little lost its clear contours, but it did not scare me, I remember well that with the last tattoo the first time I washed off the excess paint, here she had nowhere to go and it's she spoils the appearance. On the third and fourth day the film began to acquire an unsightly appearance, became like a grandmother's skin all in wrinkles (so that's how it will look in old age, I thought) arm slightly pulled, the tattoo began to itch. I freed my hand on the fifth day, a little earlier than the master advised. It was painful to tear the film, it was very tightly glued to it, I had to use the recommendations of the manufacturer and heat with a hair dryer. After removing it, I washed everything with liquid soap and evaluated the result: the skin under the film was red, the pattern began to peel off. But a day of using the already beloved d-panthenol ointment and the result surpassed all my expectations! The excess skin came off, the tattoo was moisturized, it stopped itching, and there were no crusts at all! On the sixth day, everything healed and felt great.
