I’ve been using a product called Dermalize on a lot of my recent (fresh) tattoos, as per guidance from some of my tattooists. I thought I’d write an unsponsored post about why I genuinely like it. All the usual disclaimers with this one. Firstly, please follow your tattooist’s advice. As with all of Inkluded’s tattoo guides, always consult your artist and their recommendations. Secondly, as mentioned above, this is not a sponsored post or paid advertising, but was created in close contact with information from the company Dermalize and artists who use their product. Incidentally, Dermalize is officially endorsed internationally by around 40 exceptional artists such as Sam Barber, Stefano Alcantara, Steve Butcher, Jeff Gogue, David Corden and too many more to list here! I think Dermalize makes tattoo healing so easy – no fuss! With Dermalize, it’s probably not something that you will hear about unless it’s used by someone who tattoos you. Essentially it’s a product that your tattooer may use to wrap your tattoo in post-appointment, as an alternative to cling film. You may leave the studio with it on your skin already and / or take a small portion of film home with you as well to apply yourself.

Therefore, Dermalize is not something I’d use in the aftercare process without informing and / or asking my artist first as they’ll have specific guidance for their own individual work. Depending on the tattoo location, size and execution, and your own personal circumstances, Dermalize may or may not be the best option for you.

So, what is it?!

Dermalize is a thin, self-adhesive, protective tattoo film. It is designed to protect the tattoo and provide a waterproof, anti-bacterial barrier that prevents external contaminants from entering the wound. It’s breathable – lets oxygen in and excess moisture vapour out. It’s flexible and can stay on for several days.
