People's Choice Tattoo Competitions function as a Progressive Jackpot. This system is exclusive to People’s Choice competitions, and it means that the higher amount of total votes there are in a competition, the more points will be added to the jackpot and awarded to the top artists in the competition. All points go into a prize pool and get distributed among winners when the competition ends based on their position when the competition ends. For a more detailed explanation of how the People's Choice Leaderboard works and how points are accumulated, please view this article.
Saniderm is an effective barrier against water, dirt, germs, and friction – all of which will damage your tattoo and impair the beauty of your finished tattoo. Go about your business knowing that your tattoo is protected from everything and that it will heal as beautifully as you intended. Bandages similar to Saniderm have been used by doctors and surgeons for over 30 years. Saniderm works by locking in your body’s natural healing fluids so your tattoo stays hydrated and heals quickly and efficiently with no scabbing and reduced scarring. Oxygen is vital for a healing tattoo, without it, your skin suffocates. Saniderm is engineered to be gas permeable so your skin can “breathe” and get all the oxygen it needs to heal perfectly. Because it is breathable, Saniderm can be worn for several days at a time while your tattoo heals.
