This medical grade plastic wrap protects your new tattoo from clothes rubbing against it. The second skin also provides a WATERPROOF, ANTIBACTERIAL-BARRIER that stops pathogens and external contaminants from entering the wound. It is BREATHABLE, allowing oxygen to enter and allowing excess moisture to be released from the wound. It’s light to wear, FLEXIBLE and stretchable which allows it to be placed anywhere on the body and stay on,up to several days.
In our shop we will apply the second skin upon completion of your tattoo. Plus we will provide you with extra sheets of the wrap at no extra cost, so that you can protect your tattoo in the days to follow.

As previously said, you will stop using the second skin after a maximum of 6 days. But in total your skin may take up to a month to fully be "back."
After you stop using your second skin, we ask you to periodically apply non-scented moisturizer to your skin when it appears dry. Make sure not to put too much on.
