How would one wrap a small tattoo in an awkward position on the body using cling film (I'm talking like 1-2cm in size) and would it still need to be re-wrapped before sleeping for the first night only, even if it is such a small tattoo?

I’m using ‘second skin’ type film all the time now (4+ years) and I think it is truly AMAZING!!

I used Dermalize for a good while and had around 10% reacting to the glue, resulting in a rash around the edge of the film lasting about a week. Even with my own son, I advised it better to put up with the rash and get a better/safer heal. Not all customers agreed.

I now use Yayo healing film and I’ve no longer have issues with the rash. The healing with this stuff is so good, next to no scabbing and instant sanitary protection immediately after the tattoo, plus clients can shower with the film on and there’s no first night discharge or contamination risk with bed linen.

I’ve stopped selling aftercare cream with this stuff and I’m more confident that when a client leaves, the healing will happen according to the method I know.
