    @Cobrakiller - I assume you`re joking, but incase you`re not:

    When you get a tattoo, once the artist is done he/she will clean the tattoo with a medical soap solution and then slather it in antibiotic ointment and cover it in saran wrap. This is to keep the tattoo from weeping too much which would cause some of the colors to bleed out. You can take the saran wrap off and wash it after about an hour or so.

    Drgonace, I only looked at it quickly. I thought the cellophane was drawn on with marker. I have never gotten a tattoo, but have watched others and the area where the tattoo is usually a lot more red and irritated. Also, I have never seen a back tattoo done, but when arms are done, they wrap up the whole area.

    If a tattoo is done correctly in stages and not at a "chop shop" (I equate a lot of these places with cheap hair salons like Supercuts, etc.) then you don`t require plastic wrap. Tattooing is brutual to the skin and artwork should be done in stages, to allow the area time to heal and be ready for the next step.

    A simple, heavy layer of a Vitamin A & E ointment in a petroleum base suffices to protect the artwork, reduce irritation and prevent infection from outside sources.

    @cobrakiller/Dragonrace - Weeping is a natural and required step in receiving a tattoo - the skin will only absorb so much ink and will then reject the excess until it has time to heal. Covering in plastic wrap doesn`t stop weeping... it simply keeps the weeping from getting on clothes and other pourous surfaces and staining.

    Yet another example of cheap, quick artists that have proliferated since the early `90s when it became trendy.

    I never knew that about tattoos DFWBrysco. Interesting.
    I don`t remember getting plastic wrap put on my tattoo (thank God, after what you said). Vaseline, then gauze until the next day. And instructions on how to care for it (do not scratch, unscented lotion, no direct contact with the sunlight, ect.).

    That`s a pretty broad generalization. The guy who did my first couple tats used plastic wrap to cover them initially. They turned out great. Not a "chop shop" tattooist by any means. He was an experienced and talented artist. A tattooists worth can`t be judged by choice of dressing alone. I`m a nurse. Plastic wrap serves the same essential function as tegaderm, only without the adhesive. Tegaderm works great for protecting shallow wounds.
