Is Tattoo Aftercare ok to use if it contains a fragrance (aroma)?

Recently I’ve seen a few articles about the healing of tattoos and quite a few of them comment that only ‘fragrant’ free products should be used.  This isn’t quite accurate. Definitely highly perfumed ‘synthetic’ products should be taken a wide birth, definitely avoided, in fact any product that isn’t made specifically for tattoo aftercare (or…

How long does a tattoo take to heal?

….. I was asked this on Twitter recently and you can’t answer that question in 140 characters! It’s just not that easily answered but it’s a great question – it depends on these factors: Where on the body your new ink is. Clothes can rub on the new tattoo – different fabrics will be more…

It’s ok, I’ll just use nappy rash cream on my new tattoo……

….. sadly that tradition has stuck, because when it was introduced (the 50’s I think) there really was nothing else available / suitable. Nappy rash creams are thick and can be difficult to apply to your new tattoo.  The cream pulls on the skin (ouch >_<) and that’s worse if the cream is cold (due…

TINKture fantastic for weird reactions to older tattoos…..

We’ve had some wonderful feedback over the last few months from a few people who have purchased TINKture, not to help heal new ink, but to help flatten lumpy, bumpy skin (where the skin has reacted to an ink colour) and tattoo scarring. In one case, the tattoo was almost 5 years, the person was…
